Hundred-Foot Drug Smuggling Sub Found in Ecuador

Hosted by

In Ecuador, drug enforcement officials have seized the latest drug-smuggling vessel. The 100-foot-long diesel-electric powered submarine was caught in an Ecuadorian jungle waterway, bound for the Pacific Ocean. It's the first known, fully operational sub deployed by drug runners looking to smuggle tons of cocaine out of Latin America. We hear more from Dane Schiller, who's written about the seizure for the Houston Chronicle, and from Vanda Felbab-Brown, Professor of Security Studies at Georgetown University.
