    uranium 308 lol

    That's what the AFP had.....same with NBC too.

    During an investigation over several months, prosecutors say the man had communicated with an undercover Homeland Security agent, promising he had connections to a firm that mined uranium in Sierra Leone.

    Prosecutors say an agent first posted an ad on the website alibaba.com seeking to purchase processed uranium, also known as yellowcake uranium. Yellowcake can be used in nuclear weapons, when processed further.

    When he was arrested, prosecutors say he had raw uranium in two pairs of shoes and a thumb drive with a contract for the sale and supply of the uranium to Iran.

    He is charged with violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and Iranian Transaction Regulations.....snip~

    Then it worked.....as every news source out there has something up on it. Not to mention Iran told us we had best not think about Striking Syria. So you think we are just trying to give the Iranians a little scare huh?

    Iran nuclear: 'Uranium shoe' man arrested in US



    Samples of raw uranium ore were found beneath the inner soles of his shoes, an agent said in a US court complaint.

    When enriched, yellowcake can be used in the manufacture of nuclear fuel and weapons.

    He presented himself as someone affiliated with a company engaged in mining and selling uranium in Sierra Leone, according to the US complaint, a copy of which was published by the New York Times.

    The complaint against him was filed in Florida, his ultimate destination at the time of his arrest.....snip~

    The Sierra Leone-based Campbell had been under surveillance since May 2012, when he responded to an ad on the site Alibaba.com by someone looking to buy uranium 308, or yellow cake.

    Asked to supply 1,000 tons of uranium -- disguised with other types of ore to escape detection -- Campbell promised to ship the product, disguised as chromite, from Sierra Leone to the port of Bandar Abbas in Iran.

    Investigators also found contact information for the sale and delivery of the uranium on a USB key.

    Accused of violating US law concerning transactions with Iran, Campbell could face up to 20 years in prison and a fine of $1 million.

    The case was transferred to a federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.....snip~

    US arrests man 'with uranium for Iran in shoes'

    This guy is a TRAITOR.....what defense is there? He was merely doing business. If he is an American then he is a Traitor. 20 years and 1 million dollar fine. Just isn't enough. Can you believe this. In NY.....caught with the stuff in the soles of his shoes. Worse is.....somehow this guy could get his hands on that much Uranium. 1000 tons. What do you think should take place with this guy?
    Well that's just great!!!!

    Now when we go the through the airport line-ups they'll be tearing our shoes apart.

    It would seem an appropriate sentence that he continues to wear shoes with uranium in them.

    I think it is more designed to influence the American public regarding Iran and nukes


    What we have is an ICE operation dealing with someone who had no ties to Iran
