The United Nations (UN) Security Council prohibited cargo originating from Iraq and imports not accompanied by UN authorization letters, though the food-for-oil agreement permitted the Iraqis to sell limited amounts of oil to pay for food and medicine. Iraqi criminals and on occasion, terrorists (including a highly lucrative drug trade that specialized in heroin and methamphetamines to finance terrorist crimes), became so brazen in their smuggling efforts that the coalition consistently refined MIOs. The Iraqis, however, sold oil below market value to entice smugglers, and provided naval officers to assist thieves.

In addition, VFA-115 embarked with 12 F/A-18E Super Hornets, and HC-5 embarked with two MH-60S Seahawks, marking the first deployment of these types of aircraft on board the ship. The carrier also put to sea with her first F414-GE-400 Super Hornet Jet Engine Test Instrumentation Cell, and 1,000 pound class JDAMs for use with F/A-18Es. As they set sail, Lt. Corey L. Pritchard of VFA-115 accomplished the initial deployed Super Hornet trap on board the carrier during a series of carrier qualifications over the first few days. The squadron dedicated their deployment to the memory of the firefighters of Ladder Company 4 of Midtown Manhattan, which lost 15 men to the terrorist attacks of 9/11. At one point, sailors painted the names of 12 of these heroes onto each of their Super Hornets to honor the firemen, and some also adopted one of the firehouse’s slogans for their cruise patches: “Pride of Midtown. Never Missed a Performance.”
