The Dumbest Thing You’ll Read All Day

I don’t think there’s anything I can add to this to make it more ridiculous:

Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) on Wednesday cautioned that a nuclear weapon could enter the U.S. under the cover of marijuana.

“We sometimes used to make the point that if someone wanted to smuggle a dangerous weapon into America, even a nuclear weapon, how would they do it?” he said on CNN. “The suggestion is, maybe we’ll hide it in a bale of marijuana. There are national security implications here for a porous border.

I guess smuggling nuclear warheads into the country on rockets was a bit expensive.

    ICBM technology is much harder to perfect than a crude fission device of 1% efficiency. Still powerful enough to destroy a city.

  2. Actually, it’s already been determined that the best commodity for camoflaging nuclear weapons are in the truckloads of imported kitty litter because the clay used to make kitty litter is naturally radioactive.

  3. My guess is that the existence of widespread pot smuggling makes it a whole lot easier to smuggle things that actually matter to US security.
    One of us is taking the wrong lesson from this.

    1. If there are items they’re actually worried about being smuggled in they should list them. Going straight to the nukes is a bit much.
