2. SOUNDBITE (English) Jim Carroll, U.S. Drug Czar:
"This week, as we know, 16 and a half tons of cocaine has been seized and now six men associated with this crime have been arrested and charged. What is clear is that under President Trump we will hunt down these drug traffickers, we will stop them from bringing poison anywhere into our country and anywhere into our world. We will bring them to justice, and we will let no stone be unturned."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Jim Carroll, U.S. Drug Czar:
"We know in this shipment that there were doses enough for two million different individuals at any time. This could have killed countless thousands and maybe millions of people. The dedicated work by the men and women that I stand in front of right now and those who are still hard at work is an incredible opportunity for us to say, 'Thank you.' And to say quite sincerely, 'You have saved lives.'"

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Casey Durst, U.S. Customs and Border Protection:
"Thirty-five thousand pounds of cocaine is an incredible amount and a street value of over a billion dollars is hard to conceptualize. What you see here with us today is only a quarter of the total seizure."

10. SOUNDBITE (English) William M. McSwain, U.S. Attorney:
"In addition to prosecuting those named individuals and any others involved, our office is considering all available remedies, including possible forfeiture of the ship and any appropriate criminal and civil penalties. The vessel is operated under the flag of Liberia by MSC, which stands for Mediterranean Shipping Company. And MSC is a Swiss-based shipping line. It is one of the world's largest shipping lines in terms of containers."

12. SOUNDBITE (English) William M. McSwain, U.S. Attorney:
"This has been a tough week for Richard Ross (referring to Philadelphia Police Department commissioner) and for his department. It's easy to criticize but it's hard to do the work that they do. I see the dedication of Commissioner Ross and his department on a daily basis and I think he's doing an extraordinary job under very difficult circumstances that are not of his making."
