"Navy ship arrives with 7 tons of cocaine"...insert Bush joke here.
JACKSONVILLE, Florida (AP) -- A Navy ship brought in 15,000 pounds (6,750 kilograms) of cocaine -- valued at about $480 million (euro374.9 million) -- seized in two drug busts in the Pacific Ocean this summer, authorities said.

The USS John L. Hall brought the drugs into Naval Station Mayport on Friday, said Donnie Brzuska, a U.S. Coast Guard spokesman.

The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Alert from Astoria, Oregon, captured the first 5,000 pounds (2,250 kilograms) on June 12 after sharpshooters disabled a speedboat about 150 miles (241 kilometers) northeast of the Galapagos Islands. The speedboat crew was captured boarding a nearby fishing vessel.

On July 7, the USS Hall came across a burning fishing vessel about 72 miles (116 kilometers) southwest of the El Salvador-Guatemala border. After putting out the fire, the crew found 10,000 pounds (4,500 kilograms) of cocaine hidden in secret compartments, authorities said.

"In the Navy ..." by the Village People ...

Hmm, after posting initially, I thought ... "This must be their new recruiting tool ..."

7. Bush goes into the now empty hold of the ship and starts licking the walls
and floor. Asked what's he doing, he replies, "I want this ship spittin' clean."
