TODAY: WEDNESDAY AUG 16, 2006, breaking news

Authorities set up a half-mile perimeter around a terminal at the Port of Seattle on Wednesday after bomb-sniffing dogs indicated that at least one container recently unloaded from a ship could contain explosives.

Dozens of personnel were evacuated from Terminal 18, on Harbor Island south of downtown Seattle, a port spokesman said. A bomb squad was set to examine the container and determine its contents.

The container was taken off the ship because of questions about a manifest, port spokesman David Schaefer said.

Yea they said they examined the contents and it didnt match.


"The bomb-sniffing dogs did what bomb-sniffing dogs do, and it caused us to be worried there might be explosives," Schaefer said.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Mike Zolzer said the container was supposed to contain oily rags, but authorities apparently found items that did not match that description.

Zolzer said he did not know where the ship originated.




here is the link to the story:
www.breitbart.com..." target="_blank" class="postlink">Drudge report story

that last part is what creeped me out. they dont even know where the ship originated and they havent said what was in the containers that wasnt supposed to be there.
seems like everyone is trying to make us scared today huh?

Whats even weirder is that I can't seem to find anything else on the web about this. Just DigitalGrl's article there...........

Something like this certainly should attract a bit more attention, given the recent terrorist threat, no?

yea i would think so. i found it on the drudge report and then it linked it to this news site which is definatly reputable.

just so everyone knows,,,no one has been arrested yet. asala posted an article from june by accident.

I agree. A ship from an unknown port shows up with a container that makes the bomb sniffing dogs spaz out, and causes the main container terminal in America's 3rd busiest port to shut down........and only one internet news service covers it?????????

Weird indeed!

Dozens of non-essential personnel were evacuated from Terminal 18, on Harbor Island south of downtown Seattle, a Port of Seattle spokesman said. A bomb squad used explosive charges to cut into the containers and search the contents.

It wasn't immediately clear what prompted the dogs to alert on the containers, but the bomb squad found no explosives or radioactive materials inside, said port spokesman David Schaefer.

Mike Milne, a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said agents had been using a "gamma-ray" device to peer through the containers' steel walls to determine what they contained. Some of the items did not appear to match what was listed on the containers' manifest, Milne said.


Certainly covered on Fox, maybe some news rooms didn't think it was "worthy?"

Thanks for the link. Now we know the container's origin, Pakistan, and the ship's origin, Hong Kong. Maybe thats what the concern one.

No word on what they found. Its says no explosives or radioactive materials. Maybe some chemical in the container that has possible explosive's making capability set them off?
