Monday, June 26, 2006
PORT HUENEME, Calif. — Authorities sealed off a Southern California port Monday afternoon after a possible terrorist threat was found scrawled in a cargo ship's hold, a port official said.
Authorities closed off the Port Of Hueneme in Ventura County after a dockworker discovered the message scrawled in marker on a metal pillar in the hold of a ship carrying bananas from Guatemala, said Will Berg, the port's marketing director.
Berg said message read: "This nitro is for you Mr. George W. Bush and your Jewish cronies."
