Just Another Day At The Office

CIA Jet Used for “Rendering” Suspects Crashes with Four Tons of Cocaine on Board

"U.S. authorities are assisting the Mexican government in the investigation of an American business jet that crashed near Cancun this week with four tons of cocaine on board, officials said Thursday.
(...)
Officials at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico had no information on any American citizens being killed or arrested in connection with the aircraft, a 1975 model Gulfstream II.
(...)
Some news reports have linked the plane to the transport of terrorist suspects to the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, but those reports cite logs that indicate only that the plane flew twice between Washington, D.C., and Guantanamo and once between Oxford, Conn., and Guantanamo. No terrorist suspects are known to have been transferred to Guantanamo directly from the United States."

So this is how the spooks are doing things, at least for now. It appears that they have a network of privately owned planes with complex and murky histories that secretly ferry people, probably US citizens, out of the country to Guantanamo and hop over to Columbia to pick up a load of their favorite contraband to smuggle back north. Some things never change.

Another article that will never see the light of day in the MSM, unless its buried in the back-pages and completely distorted from the truth.

I'll be sure to share it with the drugwar rant and other drug-war forums, though.

Nice catch! Thanx.
