Hamilton’s crew, along with an aviation detachment from the Coast Guard’s Helicopter Interdiction Tactical Squadron began their deployment in late January by serving as the first National Security Cutter to participate in a Navy Composite Training Unit Exercise. For three weeks, Hamilton integrated with the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower and ships and aircraft of Carrier Strike Group Ten to test the strike group’s ability to carry out sustained combat operations at sea. Hamilton’s commanding officer, Captain Timothy Cronin, said the event highlighted the unique capabilities of the Coast Guard’s 418-foot National Security Cutter. read more

  1. They can put this in storage and then the embedded Brennan and Comey underlings can lose the paperwork on it and use it to do some really great things!

  2. End all welfare. Then stop wasting taxpayer money protecting people from their own decisions. The only “war” that has been a bigger, more expensive failure than the “war on drugs” is the “war on poverty”.

    It only requires one to start a war. But it requires at least to to have one. So? Who won the War On Poverty™? Maybe that will point our attention to who started it.

  5. 7 tons of coke! Who is doing all of this shit? How much made it through? 10x? 20x??

    That’s 1792000 8 balls-holy crap. Or
    6342000 grams!!! And that’s uncut. Good Lord.

  6. I realize you have to keep the evidence, but it would make great TV to put the smugglers back on the boat with the coke and let the Air Force practice Air to Sea bombing since they don’t get that opportunity as much as the navy.

    Only problem is you would get a lot of addicted sharks and dolphins.

    Society is way to soft on drug dealers! I personally hate them more than murderers. They kill an entire society very slowly and add add many more social miseries.

  7. Why would a ship stationed in Charleston be working in the Pacific. Coast Guard doesn’t have a west coast fleet?

  8. They now have enough on hand for the DemoKKK-RATs to have a huge victory party for having shut down the country, they despise, for many, many moons!

  9. @ Crackerbaby and si. If you look at maps and use the measuring tool you can get the miles that will answer your question. Key is the Panama Canal. Many years ago I was working in Miami and cutters off the coast of Colombia would do drug bust. East coast cutters have two advantages.

    1. It is shorter from Isabela Island to Charleston (3,000 SM) than to S.F. Bay which would be about 3,500 miles.

    2. Getting a conviction is much easier on the east coast than going through the 9th district courts. Trump is reshaping that court but it still has a way to go.
