    US Arrests Man 'with Uranium for Iran in Shoes'.....

    A man was arrested in New York City's international airport with uranium destined for Iran hidden in the soles of his shoes, the US Justice Department said.

    Patrick Campbell, 33, who was arrested Wednesday as he arrived at the John F Kennedy airport from Paris, is accused of trying to act as an intermediary to sell Iran 1,000 tons of purified uranium, in violation of US law.

    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~

    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?

    Mornin Rocket.....yeah and know exactly where he can get all this Uranium from. Glad someone was on it in NY. He has no excuse. It's a treasonous act regardless of anything he says. But he was inside the country. Good thing it wasn't parts to anything for here.

    My gut is telling me this is just some random unstable guy who never actually had access to that much uranium. Because someone in that line of work being dumb enough to walk around with uranium IN HIS FREAKING SHOES doesn't seem likely.

    Some stories are just too weird.

    I think the death penalty is warranted.

    Not to mention going to the site Alibaba.....I mean he must not be that smart. Unless he was a diversion.

    It's also worth noting that the AFP got some details wrong

    He was trying to sell yellow cake, not enriched uranium.
    He was not carrying enriched uranium.

    He would rack up some serious frequent flyer miles if he was trying to deliver 1,000 tons two shoes-full at a time.

    Try again? Who said anything about a 1000 tons in his shoes?

    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.....snip~
