Well received an email letting me know the link has disappeared. I confirmed AFP's link and it indeed is gone. Interesting. Yahoo still has it in its cue, but it will disappear after 7 days. Still, it is the best link I can find. Read it while you can.

"Hoping for a new weapon in their arsenal, the US Coast Guard is working with Congress to make it illegal even to be aboard an unflagged semi-sub in international waters, whether or not authorities find cocaine at the scene as evidence of wrongdoing. The crime would carry a 20-year prison term"

And under just what "authority" will Congress claim over the high seas as jurisdictional nexus to charge someone other than a U.S. national with such a crime?
