36. I didn't save a link, but hows about 5.5 tons in a shipment headed for Iraq??
It was one of my 1st posts here at DU in LBN. It got moved because the mod thought it was Iran Contra old stuff. Nope, a shipment had been hidden in the center of a giant wire spool. The Swedish authorities found it if I remember correct. That was at least 2 years ago.

I wrote Dar Jamail about it & he actually wrote back. He said the drug trade was huge in Iraq & the "wild west" style of drug dealing was funding many factions there.

I did a google & came up dry. But I remember it clearly.
