We talked about torture rendition prisons some time ago. Here is a video detailing the history of a Gulfstream II jet (tail number N987SA) which was used by the CIA as a “torture taxi” and a drug courier.
According to a retired DEA covert operative, it renditioned victims to Guantanamo for torture/interrogation between 2003 and 2005.
It crashed in the Yucatan Peninsula in September 2007 with nearly four tons of cocaine onboard. The cocaine was picked up at Medellin, Columbia and was bound for the U.S.
Apparently it was a drug deal gone bad. There was a shift change and the new group of Mexican airport officials wanted more money. When the CIA did not pay, the Mexican officials refused it clearance to land. Consequently, it ran out of fuel and crashed.
As I understand it, Harrison Ford aside, (1) the CIA is the real power behind the world drug trade.
For more on this subject, watch Gary Webb’s investigative reporting on the CIA drugs/arms connection: http://ladyzania.multiply.com/journal/item/428.
Also, here is an Alex Jones video on the drug war and the CIA’s role in the world drug trade. According to Alex, Pat Tillman was killed because he was writing home exposing the CIA’s role in the Afghan opium trade.
We have to wake up to the extent to which we are being manipulated.
Thanks to Marshall.
