In Case You Missed It...

...and you very well may have, since the MSM gave it a pass. After all, when THE ONE is on the verge of taking the reins, why be concerned about a potential attempt to eradicate one of our allies?

Hijacked Iranian Ship Was A Dirty Bomb Meant For Israel On Yom Kippur

On August 21st, 2008, the MV Iran Deyant, 44,458 dead weight bulk carrier was heading towards the Suez Canal. As it was passing the Horn of Africa, about 80 miles southeast of al-Makalla in Yemen, the ship was surrounded by speedboats filled with members of a gang of Somalian pirates who grab suitable commercial ships and hold them and their cargos and crews for ransom. The captain was defenseless against the 40 pirates armed with AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenades blocking his passage. He had little choice other than to turn his ship over to them. What the pirates were not banking on, however, was that this was no ordinary ship.
How "not ordinary?" Well:

Within a period of three days, those pirates who had boarded the ship and opened the cargo container with its gritty sand-like contents, all developed strange health complications, to include serious skin burns and loss of hair. And within two weeks, sixteen of the pirates subsequently died, either on the ship or on shore.
The ship has been released. And with none of the MSM covering this, the truth about what is on this ship may never be fully explored or reported - except by the blogs and the Long War Journal. After all, why should we worry about a lunatic who wants to bring about armageddon and has a nuclear program - what could happen?
