Ship Boarded in Charleston SC (False Alarm)

I hate to be alarmist but Patterico is pretty reliable.



Last five ports of call for that ship are.

Looks like she may have stopped in NY on the return, I'm not sure.

Update: Reports this morning is that its all clear.

Coast Guard Lt. J.B. Zorn told NBC that an anonymous call was received, followed within minutes by a YouTube video with similar information regarding a potential threat on board the vessel.

The Coast Guard twitter account said the original reporting source of the threat had been detained by authorities for questioning.

2 i gave up on Patterico last summer, when he went full on #NeverTrump.

anyone who was fine with Shrillary being POTUS doesn't need my traffic or my $$.

3 hopefully they learned things from the incident to improve tactics for whats likely to happen in the future (who needs an ICBM or even a nuke when you can ship alternate WMD right to your target)
