Biggest submarine drug bust ever yields 181 million in cocaine off Pacific

first_imgLOS ANGELES,United States — The U.S. Coast Guard said it seized $181 million worth of cocaine from a submarine-like vessel in the eastern Pacific Ocean, but even more drugs sank during the recent bust.The Coast Guard seized 12,000 pounds (5,400 kilograms) of cocaine from four smugglers on a semi-submersible ship, the agency said Wednesday.The vessel, which was first spotted about 200 miles (320 kilometers) south of Mexico off the coast of Central America, was carrying a total of 16,000 pounds of narcotics, but as the ship was being towed, it took on water and sank. Some 4,000 pounds of narcotics were lost in the process.The seizure, which took place on July 18, was the “largest recorded semi-submersible interdiction in Coast Guard history,” according to the agency.The 40-foot (12-meter) vessel was deemed “unrecoverable” after it sank.The Coast Guard said there have been 25 known interdictions of semi-submersible vessels in the eastern Pacific Ocean since November 2006.“Every interception of these semi-submersibles disrupts transnational organized crime networks and helps increase security and stability in the Western Hemisphere,” Vice Admiral Charles W. Ray, commander of the Pacific area, said in a statement.Semi-submersible ships are designed for drug trafficking, and because they are mostly submerged — often with only a cockpit and exhaust pipe visible above water — they are particularly difficult to detect and interdict, the Coast Guard said.

Meanwhile, Inslee Clark Jr. the dean of admissions at Yale Clark looked over my record and asked me a bunch of questions most of which were about where I had grown up and how I had ended up at Deerfield Then he paused looked me in the eye and asked if I really wanted to go to Yale if it was my first choice When I said yes Clark’s reply was instant: “Then I can promise you that you are in I will tell Mr Boyden that you don’t have to apply anywhere else Just kind of keep it to yourself” What I didn’t know then was that I was part of a revolution being led by Clark whose nickname was Inky I was about to become one of what would come to be known as Inky’s boys and later girls We were part of a meritocracy infusion that flourished at Yale and other elite education institutions law firms and investment banks in the mid-1960s and ’70s It produced great progress in equalizing opportunity But it had the unintended consequence of entrenching a new aristocracy of rich knowledge workers who were much smarter and more driven than the old-boy network of heirs born on third base–and much more able to enrich and protect the clients who could afford them After college I went on to Yale Law School and graduated in 1975 at a time when demand for lawyers in the flourishing knowledge-worker economy was exploding By the mid-1980s in terms of dollars generated the legal industry was bigger than steel or textiles and about the same size as the auto industry The new lawyers were increasingly concentrated in fast-growing firms that served large corporations and were prepared to pay skyrocketing salaries to attract the best talent Soon the gap between pay in the private and public sectors was too large to attract enough talented young lawyers to government or public-interest law–a change described by Stanford law professor Robert Gordon in 1988 as “one of the most antisocial acts of the bar in recent history” I played a role in this “antisocial” movement In 1979 I started a magazine called the American Lawyer which focused on the business of law firms and the intriguing questions lurking behind their elegant reception areas Which ones were best managed Which offered the most opportunity to women or minorities Which were more likely to promote associates to partnership Which had the fairest or most generous bonus systems And yes which provided the highest profits for partners That last question resulted in the American Lawyer launching a special issue every summer beginning in 1985 in which we deployed reporters to pierce the secrecy of these private partnerships so that the magazine could rank the revenues and average profits taken home by partners at the largest firms When the first survey was published I received a call from a former classmate who practiced at a large Los Angeles firm He was outraged because he–and his wife–had found out that another classmate who worked at a seemingly fungible LA firm made about 25% more than he did Until then they had been perfectly happy with his six-figure income The fallout from this report and those from similar trade publications was significant and double-edged The new flow-of-market information about these businesses made those who ran them more accountable to their partners their employees and their clients but it also transformed the practice of law by the country’s most talented lawyers in ways that had significant drawbacks The emphasis was now fully on serving those clients who could pay the most Ross MacDonald for TIME FOUR The Meritocracy’s ascent was about more than personal profit As my generation of achievers graduated from elite universities and moved into the professional world their personal successes often had serious societal consequences They upended corporate America and Wall Street with inventions in law and finance that created an economy built on deals that moved assets around instead of building new ones They created exotic and risky financial instruments including derivatives and credit default swaps that produced sugar highs of immediate profits but separated those taking the risk from those who would bear the consequences They organized hedge funds that turned owning stock into a minute-by-minute bet rather than a long-term investment They invented proxy fights leveraged buyouts and stock buybacks that gave lawyers and bankers a bonanza of new fees and maximized short-term profits for increasingly unsentimental shareholders but deadened incentives for the long-term growth of the rest of the economy Regulatory agencies were overwhelmed by battalions of lawyers who brilliantly weaponized the bedrock American value of due process so that for example an Occupational Safety and Health Administration rule protecting workers from a deadly chemical could be challenged and delayed for more than a decade and end up being hundreds of pages long Lawyers then contested the meaning of every clause while racking up fees of hundreds of dollars per hour from clients who were saving millions of dollars on every clause they could water down They deployed litigators to fend off private-sector unions in the South and to defend their firings of union supporters and other blatant violations of law for which they happily paid fines equivalent to 1% to 2% of what they saved by underpaying their workers Deploying the First Amendment right to “petition the Government for a redress of grievances” thousands of achievers began in the 1970s to turn Washington into a colony of lobbyists Through the power of the campaign cash increasingly wielded by their clients much of which they helped raise and distribute the hordes of lobbyists were able to get riders or exemptions worth billions inserted into legislation governing trade the tax code job safety or industry subsidies Although labor laws were routinely being violated by employers in highly publicized fights and Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and the White House they were able to block legislation introduced by President Jimmy Carter that would have toughened penalties for violations and helped level what had become a lopsided playing field when it came to organizing unions in the private sector As private-sector unions continued to dwindle the achievers made sure that no similar legislation even came up for a vote in the four decades that followed A landmark 1976 Supreme Court case brought by lawyers for consumer-rights activist Ralph Nader gave corporations that owned drugstores a First Amendment right to inform consumers by advertising their prices In the years that followed lawyers for the protected morphed that consumer-rights victory into a corporate free-speech movement The result has been court decisions allowing unlimited corporate money to overwhelm democratic elections and other rulings allowing corporations to challenge regulations related to basic consumer-protection issues like product labeling As government was disabled from delivering on vital issues the protected were able to protect themselves still more For them it was all about building their own moats Their money their power their lobbyists their lawyers their drive overwhelmed the institutions that were supposed to hold them accountable–government agencies Congress the courts There may be no more flagrant example of the achievers’ triumph than how they were able to avoid accountability when the banks they ran crashed the economy The CEOs had been able to get the courts to treat their corporations like people when it came to protecting the corporation’s right to free speech Yet after the crash CEOs got prosecutors and judges to treat them like corporations when it came to personal responsibility The corporate structures they had built were so massive and so complex that the prosecutors decided no senior executive could be proved to have known what was going on Meanwhile the lobbyists for the big banks swarmed the often invisible process under which the thousands of pages of regulations were drafted to implement the Dodd-Frank financial-reform act which was passed in 2010 to address the risks and regulatory gaps that precipitated the crash As a result about 30% of the 390 required regulations had not been promulgated as of mid-2016 according to the law firm Davis Polk Under the Trump Administration and continued Republican control of Congress efforts intensified to roll back the rules that were already in effect even as the big banks–which had argued that Dodd-Frank would kill their businesses–were enjoying record profits and market share It may be understandable for those on the losing side of this triumph of the achievers to condemn the winners as gluttons That explanation however is too simple Many of the protected class are people who have lived the kind of lives that all Americans celebrate They worked hard They innovated They tried things that others wouldn’t attempt They believed often correctly that they were writing new chapters in the long story of American progress When they created ways to package mortgages into securities that could be resold to investors for example it was initially celebrated as a way to get more money into the mortgage pool thereby making more mortgages available to the middle class But by 2007 it had become far too much of a good thing As the financial engineers continued to push the envelope with ever-riskier versions of the original invention they crashed the economy Thus the breakdown came when their intelligence daring creativity and resources enabled them to push aside any effort to rein them in They did what comes naturally they kept winning And they did it with the protection of an alluring defensible narrative that shielded them from pushback at least initially They won not with the brazen corruption of the robber barons of old but by drawing on the core values that have always defined American greatness They didn’t do it cynically at least not at first They simply got really really good at taking advantage of what the American system gave them and doing the kinds of things that America treasures in the name of the values that America treasures And they have invested their winnings not only to preserve their bounty but also to root themselves and their offspring in a new meritocracy-aristocracy that is more entrenched than the old-boy network Forty-eight years after Inky Clark gave me my ticket on the meritocracy express in 1967 a professor at Yale Law School jarred the school’s graduation celebration Daniel Markovits who specializes in the intersection of law and behavioral economics told the class of 2015 that their success getting accepted into and getting a degree from the country’s most selective law school actually marked their entry into a newly entrenched aristocracy that had been snuffing out the American Dream for almost everyone else Elites he explained can spend what they need to in order to send their children to the best schools provide tutors for standardized testing and otherwise ensure that their kids can outcompete their peers to secure the same spots at the top that their parents achieved “American meritocracy has thus become precisely what it was invented to combat” Markovits concluded “a mechanism for the dynastic transmission of wealth and privilege across generations Meritocracy now constitutes a modern-day aristocracy” The frustrated disillusioned Americans who voted for President Trump committed the ultimate act of rejecting the meritocrats epitomized by the hardworking always prepared Yale Law educated Hillary Clinton in favor of an inexperienced never-prepared shoot-from-the-hip heir to a real estate fortune whose businesses had declared bankruptcy six times He would “drain the swamp” in Washington he promised He would take the coal industry back to the greatness it had enjoyed 80 years before He would rebuild the cities block immigrants with a great wall provide health care for all and make the country’s infrastructure the envy of the world while cutting everyone’s taxes Forty-six percent of those who voted figured that things were so bad they might as well let him try FIVE It seems like a grim story Except that the story isn’t over During the past two years as I have discovered the people and forces behind the 50-year US tailspin I have also discovered that in every arena the meritocrats commandeered there are now equally talented equally driven achievers who have grown so disgusted by what they see that they are pushing back From Baruch College in Manhattan to the University of California Irvine more colleges are working to break down the barriers of the newly entrenched meritocracy Elite Eastern institutions such as Amherst Vassar and Princeton are using aggressive outreach campaigns to attract applicants who might otherwise be unaware of the schools’ generous financial-aid packages Entrepreneurs like Jukay Hsu a Harvard-educated Iraq War veteran who runs a nonprofit called C4Q out of a converted zipper factory in Queens are making eye-opening progress with training programs aimed at lifting those displaced by automation or trade back into middle-class software-engineering jobs “Some of the smartest hardest-working people I’ve ever met were soldiers who didn’t graduate from college” says Hsu (Disclosure: I am an uncompensated board member of C4Q) Even Washington is poised to benefit from the new wave of achievers Issue One a nonprofit ensconced in an office on lobbyists’ row on K Street is fighting for campaign-finance reforms and pushing legislation that would limit the influence of lobbyists by reining in their checkbooks The group is supported by a growing band of disillusioned politicians from both parties Better Markets a well-funded lobbying organization that squares off against the usual lobbyists and is filled with people whose meritocracy credentials match those of their adversaries is going after continuing abuses and lack of accountability on Wall Street Two other organizations the Bipartisan Policy Center and the Partnership for Public Service are preparing blueprints for civil-service reform tax reform better budgeting and contracting and infrastructure investment–all of which can attract bipartisan support if and when our elected officials finally get pushed to act Although their work is often frustrating the worsening status quo seems to energize those who are pushing back “My kid complained the other day that he still couldn’t play the violin even though he’d been practicing for two days” says Max Stier president of the Partnership for Public Service “Well yeah that’s true but you have to keep at it Persistence is an underrated virtue” Stier and the others believe that the country will overrun the lobbyists and cross over the moats when enough Americans see that we need leaders who are prepared and intelligent who can channel our frustration rather than exploit it and who can unite the middle class and the poor rather than divide them They are certain that when the country’s breakdown touches enough people directly and causes enough damage the officeholders who depend on those people for their jobs will be forced to act The new achievers are doing what they do not because they are gluttons for frustration but because they believe that America can be put back on the right course They are laying the groundwork for the feeling of disgust to be channeled into a restoration
