The Vatican + Condoms = Sex? NO. Answer: COCAINE!
“Officers found 340 grams (12 ounces) of COCAINE packed into 14 condoms.” ~ Customs Report
This drug seizure’s size was just run-of-the-mill, but the intended destination raised more than a few eyebrows.
Intercepted With Intent
The New York Post is reporting that German customs officials intercepted a shipment of cocaine destined for the Vatican.
Officers at Leipzig airport found 340 grams (12 ounces) of PURE Cocaine packaged into 14 condoms – inside a shipment of cushions from South America. Citing a German customs report, it seems the package was simply addressed to the Vatican postal office, meaning any of the Catholic mini-state’s 800 residents could have been the intended recipient.
The paper reported that a subsequent sting operation arranged with Vatican police failed to nab anyone at all. No one claimed the package, and according to the reports, this would indicate that he or she was tipped off about the plan. (< Not sure I agree 100% with that statement, btw!)
In this quanity, the cocaine would have a street value of many tens of thousands of dollars. A spokesman for the German Ministry which oversees the customs office confirmed the report. The Vatican spokesman confirmed that the Vatican police had cooperated with German police, in an attempt to identify the traffickers.
The investigation remained open..
Now that I am wrapping up this article (no pun intented), I hope that I am not the only one that sees many holes in this condom..story?
It seems either (perhaps intentionally) short-sighted, or even just mind-numbingly biased to assume in the news reports that just: ‘because somebody did not come to pick it up, they must have been notified’. WTF – really? What about the other option?! The one that says, ‘nobody came to pick it up in your sting operation attempt, because nobody at the Vatican was aware of the shipment..because it was a false attempt to undermine and defame the Vatican’ – huh?! What about that one?
Listen, I am by no means a fan of the Vatican – nor any organized religion for that matter – but I will leave it up to you to decide.
False defamation attempt or not, this is worthy news to understand – because either way, something doesn’t add up. Either, the Vatican is receiving shipments of pure cocaine via South America to fuel secret underground disco parties – or somebody wants us to believe that is the case. Either way, it might be better than we think to pay attention to stories like this..
