Republicans,Drugs and Money: Guantanamo Rendition Plane, Cocaine, Homeland 'Security',Money Laundering,Stock Fraud

In April,2006 it was revealed that a plane owned by Skyway Communications of Lakeland,Florida and Royal Sons holding company using Huffman Aviation(where Mohamed Atta trained before 9/11),as its address and paradoxically rented by the Howard Dean's Democrat presidential campaign of 2004 had been busted by the Mexican army at the Ciudad Del Carmen,Campeche airport on the Yucatan Peninsula with over 5.5 tons of cocaine on board.
Now yet another plane,(a Gulfstream II),that crashed in the Yucatan on Sept 24th this year with 4 tons of cocaine on board has connections to the Skyway Communications DC-9,(confiscated by the Mexican army and now used by the Mexican Attorney General's office),as well as to Guantanamo 'rendition' flights that may have taken place from or through Europe.Skyway Communications,a penny stock 'pump and dump' is,according to Daniel Hopsicker of madcowprod and SEC filings,connected to Titan Corporation(torturors at Abu Ghraibe,etc.),a subsidiary of Level-3 Corporation of San Diego,California that has done very well for itself financially in the 'war on terror'. Titan in San Diego strangely enough has been employer to a mysterious Lebanese-American,Makram Chams, who owned a Kwik Check cashing business in Venice,Florida that cashed a $70,000 check for Mr. Atta that was sent from Dubai,(now the official home of Halliburton),shortly before 9/11.
American-Israeli attorney Michael Farkas, founder of Skyway Communications,has both U.S. intelligence connections as well as far right Israeli connections including to Israel's largest defense or military corporation.He supports Israeli West Bank settlements or occupation of Palestinian land as well.
Company executives include the Kovars,Glenn and Brent,father and son.

The Kovars in turn appear to have NSA as well as White House connections.It was they who brought now defrauded investors from Tennessee to the White House as part of the con !
It was the Mexican Attorney General who recently acknowledged that the DC 9 captured in Mexico last year had ties to the Gulfstream II aircraft that crashed in the Yucatan in September of this year.And that plane has been proven and accepted to have made flights to Guantanamo no doubt for the U.S. government and military. Go figure.

Below are links to related stories by Daniel Hopsicker into the Skyway Communications penny stock fraud drug trafficking and probable money laundering operations that the Mexian Attorney General's bust of the money exchange proves was and is going on.Can arms trafficking be far behind ? Because Homeland Security Czar,(and Israeli spy ?),Michael Chertoff,(who replaced the butcher of Central America ,John Negroponte, in that position),and neither of them investigated or even criticised Skyway Communications 'management' for painting its two DC 9s to look like Homeland Security aircraft.Both Chertoff and Negroponte should be brought before the Congress to explain.

Among other facts proving that fact is stranger than fiction is the fact that Skyway Communications founded by far right Israeli-American Michael Farkas had among its original investors,Al Ali Al Sabah,head of the Kuwait National Guard who is himself a member of the Al Sabah royalty of Kuwait ! There is a U.S. government and Republican Party connection as well. Tom DeLay himself and a Republican business council endorsed Skyway Communications as a legit and credible company while they and Titan Corp were promoting the worthless company and selling worthless shares to investors ! Even ex Florida Governor Jeb Bush's Florida Dept. of Transportation was used to endorse and lend credibility to this fraudulent front for illegal penny stock pump and dump activities and as it turns out - drug trafficking and money laundering activities.
Daniel Hopsicker pointed out after the April 2006 bust of Skyway's DC 9 in Ciudad Del Carmen,Campeche that it seemed to be covered up by both the ruling U.S. Republican party as well as the ruling Mexican political party PAN.

With the apparent NSA,CIA and White House connections of the penny stock fraudsters who ran Skyway Communications to bankruptcy and left naive investors with 100% losses it is hard to imagine those responsible on this side of the border will be brought to justice any time soon.The money to buy the DC-9 Homeland Security plane or 'Cocaine One' that was used by Howard Dean's political campaign in the 2004 presidential running season came from money defrauded from investors while the U.S. SEC or Securities Exchange Commission looked the other way.And as Daniel Hopsicker also pointed out,the stock fraud that bought those cocaine trafficking planes appears to be as lucrative as the cocaine trafficking itself.(Perhaps Howard Dean's internet gurus,Jerome Armstrong and Markos Moulitsas Zúniga of the DailyKos were the one who rented that cocaine and penny stock fraud bought DC-9 from Skyway Communications for the Dean campaign.After all Armstrong has admitted to touting or promoting worthless penny stock scams for pay on the world wide internet and scam penny stock sites such as ragingbull.com and Mr.Kos,(Markos Moulitsas Zúniga ),has admitted to working or training with the CIA.)

It took me several years to even realise that 9/11/01 could not have happened without foreign agents,both Israelis and Kuwaitis,controlling the worthless U.S. penny stock companies ICTS International and Securacom.
The Israelis were our only line of defense in guarding Logan Airport, Massachusetts and Newark Airport in New Jersey while Securacom a penny stock scam operated by Marvin Bush and his daddy's(ex President George Herbert Walker Bush),Kuwait royal family allies(or at least one member,Mishal Yousef Saud al Sabah,who was also on the board of Securacom).And any fool would know that Israeli intelligence and even more so,(if that's possible),Kuwait royalty and their Bush partners all hated Saddam Hussein enough perhaps to do pure evil to cause him harm.
I owe thanks to both Chrisptopher Bollyn for the heads up on ICTS International and to Margie Burns
for her writing and research into Securacom and the Bush-Al Sabah connection.Both Securacom and ICTS International were not just incompetent at best in guarding strategic American real estate they were responsible for but both were also fraudulent penny stock scams that defrauded investors and probably used their worthless shares to launder money as well as to buy and bribe their way into the U.S. national security - airport and real estate - 'protection' industry. Margie Burns did mention that Mr.Al Sabah and Wirt Walker III of the Bush-Al Sabah and Securacom scam
were also involved in another penny stock scam that was prosecuted for stock fraud.

Daniel Hopsicker however is the only investigative reporter to research 9/11 from Venice,Florida,where Mohamed Atta trained or partied awaiting 9/11 to happen.

Below are quotes from Daniel Hopsicker,(the only investigator and reporter to cover 9/11 from Venice, Florida where Mohamed Atta was trained or protected at Wally Hilliard's,(ex Florida Governor Jeb Bush friend), terror flight school,Huffman Aviation), about the September crash in the Yucatan of a Gulfstream II aircraft carrying up to 4 tons of cocaine that just happened to also have access to Gitmo or the U.S. Guantanamo prison.:

5.5 tons cocaine... AND a missing $300 million?
At least three companies to which “Cocaine One’s” twin was registered have been looted, to the overall tune of almost $300 million dollars. The plane's owners have left a trail of tears for investors, engaging in massive financial fraud, of a particular kind...
Sociologists call it “state-sponsored crime.”
Innocent investors and shareholders get swindled, the bad guys get away, and newspapers go silent. There is clearly something about these particular DC9’s which give their owners a license to treat shareholders and investors like marks, and steal millions from ordinary citizens.
Working backwards from the present, the plane’s registered owner at the time it was busted was SkyWay Aircraft, the only tangible asset of SkyWay Communications Holding, a firm whose existence, as we’ve previously seen, served as nothing more than a meager excuse to run a penny stock fraud scam which bilked investors of a reported $40 million dollars... in less than three years.
SkyWay shareholders will no doubt be gratified to learn that the bankruptcy of the firm seems not to have adversely affected the firm’s top officers financially.
SkyWay’s 74 yr. old Chairman Glenn Kovar is currently building a six bedroom vacation chalet on a lake several miles north of Ducktown, Tennessee, tucked away in a picturesque rural setting boasting splendid whitewater rafting.

Mexico Attorney General:Busted American Drug Planes Flew For Same Operation by Daniel Hopsicker

Drug Planes Flown by Same Operation

Was U.S. in Business with Mexico's Sinaloa Cartel?
WORLD EXCLUSIVE
Nov 12, 2007

by Daniel Hopsicker

www.madcowprod.com

Two weeks after the MadCowMorningNews exclusively reported suspicious connections between the owners of the two American-registered planes busted with multi-ton loads of cocaine during the past 18 months on Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, the Mexican Attorney General confirmed that both planes were used by the same smuggling operation.
In coordinated raids Thursday on Casa de Cambio Puebla SA, a country-wide network of currency exchanges, many located at airports, squads of heavily-armed Mexican Federal Police took more than 70 people into custody, targeting a ring they said used laundered money to buy airplanes to smuggle drugs, Mexico's Attorney General's Office said in a news release.
Nabbed in the raid was Pedro Alfonso Alatorre Damy, identified by authorities as the major money launderer for Mexico’s Pacific Cartel, sometimes called the Sinaloa Cartel, as well as the New Federation, run by fugitive Mexican kingpin Juan “Shorty” Guzman.
Both the DC9 airliner (N900SA) busted with 5.5 tons of cocaine 18 months ago and the Gulfstream II (N987SA) business jet which crash-landed with 4 tons of cocaine had been purchased by Alatorre with laundered drug money from his “Cambio de Pueblo” currency exchanges, said a statement Friday from Mexico’s Attorney General Office.
Alatorre, alias El Piri, was arrested moments after attempting to wire $2.7 million into an account at Harris Bank in Chicago, apparently to buy more planes. In addition to that account, 23 accounts at the Wachovia Bank of Miami containing $11 million were frozen by U. S. authorities.
A major partner in the Casa de Cambio of Puebla exchanges, according to several Mexican newspapers, is Jose Ramon Gutierrez de Velasco, former mayor of Vera Cruz and close political associate of former Mexican President Vicente Fox.........
Meet the "Usual Suspects"
Left unanswered by the raids in Mexico is whether anyone will suffer any consequences on the American side of the border. The DEA's operative assumption may be that the Sinaloa Cartel was buying its jets on Ebay. Perhaps the cartel is distributing it to retail as well, using vendors who sell usually oranges at freeway onramps.
Otherwise, with no arrests of Americans forthcoming, the question of where the hell are the American drug lords may arise yet again, though not, of course, in major American newspapers...........
Representing Casa de Cambio in Miami, for example, is famed “white powder” attorney Frank Rubino, a former Secret Service agent who once protected Richard M. Nixon in Key Biscayne, Fl., then later the lawyer for Medellin kingpin Carlos Lehder. Most recently he has been the chief lawyer for Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega..........

A Senate subcommittee chaired by Senator Carl Levin, who headed a year-long money laundering probe, accused Harris Bank of being a 'significant gateway' for laundered money through correspondent accounts, or relationships with banks operating in tax havens outside the United States.
The bank had been linked to a paper company involved in financial fraud called “Hanover Bank of Antigua,” run by PR man with no banking experience whose sole banking credential appeared to be his service as a public relations advisor to former Irish prime minister Charles Haughey. .....
.......

The DC9 airliner, dubbed Cocaine One because it was painted to be indistinguishable from official U.S. Government planes from the Dept. of Homeland Security, belonged to a company which received an unexplained investment from San Diego defense contractor Titan Corp., to cite one example among many.
The DC9 airliner was also used, without reimbursement, during the first-time Senatorial campaign of Florida Republican Senator Mel Martinez, who until recently was President George W Bush’s handpicked chairman of the national Republican Party.
The Gulfstream II business jet, which some immediately dubbed Cocaine Two, was named in a European EU Commission investigation as one of the CIA planes involved in extraordinary renditions. Even if it didn't, evidence indicating it was a U.S. Government plane is its at-least several flights through highly-restricted airspace to the highly-secure U.S. military facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
It was in Mexico on at least two previous occasions, though no record of dates of departure or destination could be found. This fits Mexican journalists' reports of being denied routine access to airport logs in Cancun to show the plane's previous flights.
The EU investigation reportedly logged 794 flights by the Gulfstream between November 17, 2001 and December 25, 2005. It flew in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Italy, France, Czech Republic, Iceland and Ireland, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Barbados, Jamaica, Virgin Islands, Guadeloupe Islands and St. Kitts and Nevis, Barbados, Aruba, Santo Tomás, the Bahamas, Santa Lucia, Hawaii, Bermuda and Cancún.
"Cocaine 2" clearly got around.
Roughly during this time period, the plane was owned, at least on paper, by a New York company owned by a Russian immigrant with reported ties to top-level Russian Mobsters, according to the New York Post, as well as a George W. Bush Ranger who personally bought over $1 million of billboard ads for Bush during his 2000 Presidential election bid, which was a MadCowMorningNews exclusive.
The fact that the plane has had an impressive list politically well-connected recent owners is, no doubt, merely coincidental with the recent discovery of 4 tons of cocaine in the passenger cabin.
Otherwise someone would have been charged with a crime by now. And all that is heard officially, in regards to this matter, is a deathly silence.

Waterboarding the Water pilots?
The sequence of events began when a DC9 was busted by Mexican soldiers after landing under suspicious circumstances at a rural airport in Campeche after a flight from Venezuela on April 10, 2006. According to Mexican officials, the flight originated in Colombia.
Two pilots of Mexico’s National Water Commission (Conagua) Fernando Poot Perez and Marco Aurelio Perez de Gracia, were arrested during the seizure of more than five tons of cocaine after loitering around the tiny rural airport trying to look inconspicuous in their Falcon business jet while awaiting the arrival of the DC9.
The investigation which followed revealed a network of money-laundering for the cartel headed by Joaquín El Chapo Guzman, the Mexican Attorney General's statement said.
Then, six weeks ago, on Sept 24th, a Gulfstream II was caught after a late-night flight from the Medellin International Airport in Rio Negro. After the plane was denied permission to land at the Cancun Airport, it circled over the Yucatan peninsula until just after dawn, then crash-landed, breaking into thre pieces, in a field outside the Yucatan capital of Merida.
No one was apparently injured in the crash, and the crew and passengers were gone by the time Mexican military helicopters arrived on the scene.

SLOPPY TRADECRAFT EXPOSES CIA DRUG PLANE
WORLD EXCLUSIVE
Oct 08, 2007
by Daniel Hopsicker
www.madcowprod.com

Seventeen months after an American-registered DC9 airliner was busted with 5.5 tons of cocaine, a major international scandal is brewing over a second drug trafficking incident in Mexico's Yucatan involving an American-registered jet owned by a dummy front company of the kind usually associated with the CIA.
A weekend visit to “Donna Blue Aircraft Inc” of Coconut Beach FL., the company which FAA records show owned the Gulfstream II business jet (N987SA) which crash-landed with 3.7 tons of cocaine aboard in Mexico’s Yucatan two weeks ago, has revealed that the company’s listed address is an empty office suite with a blank sign out front.
There was no sign of Donna Blue Aircraft, Inc., at the address listed at the Florida Dept. of Corporations, 4811 Lyons Technology Parkway #8 in Coconut Beach FL.
However, there were, oddly enough, a half-dozen unmarked police cars parked directly in front of the empty suite.
Phone calls to Butters Development, the industrial park's leasing agent, went unreturned.
Moreover the brief description of Donna Blue on its Internet page, apparently designed to “flesh out the ghost a little,” is such a clumsy half-hearted effort that it defeats the purpose of helping aid the construction of a plausible “legend,” or cover, and ends up doing more harm than good...........

Increasing suspicion even more was the suggestion, in a report of a committee of the European Parliament, that in addition to having been used in drug trafficking the Gulfstream II had flown CIA rendition flights to Guantanamo.
Unnamed authorities quoted in Associated Press accounts dismissed this report, saying there was no evidence the plane flew renditions, but failed to address the fact that Guantanamo is highly restricted airspace, and any plane landing there can be presumed to be working for the U.S. Government.
What has raised the crash-landing of the Gulfstream II drug plane with U.S. Government connections to the level of real outrage is its extraordinary similarity to the DC9 airliner caught a year and a half ago, after which the planes’ registered owner suffered no ill consequences from having his airplane caught with 5.5 tons of cocaine onboard.
There are “wonderful similarities,” Mexican newspaper Por Esto reported drolly, “between the Gulfstream which crash-landed in the tiny hamlet of Tixkokob and the DC9 busted in Ciudad del Carmen which help explain why, despite the fact that almost 18 months has passed, the American owner of the DC9 has not been charged with any crime.”

Ghost Fleets of Ghost Planes owned by Ghost Companies
The reference is to information contained in a series of articles in the MadCowMorningNews detailing connections between the DC9 and the national Republican Party, like its unpaid use flying current Florida Republican Senator Mel Martinez around the state during his last week blitz before his election to the Senate in 2004.
The DC9’s owner was identified in FAA documents as Royal Sons’ Inc., owned by Frederic Geffon of St. Petersburg.
Yet despite the fact that Geffon back-dated sales documents and then had them faxed to the FAA several days after his DC9 was already in the news for the big bust, no action has been taken against Geffon, or any other owners of the plane.
Geffon claimed he had sold the DC9, several weeks before it was caught, and identified the buyer as an “airplane broker” in California who investigation revealed has no history of selling airplanes.
The circumstances of the subsequent “investigations” share many similarities. The governments involved—Mexico, the United States, Venezuela, and Colombia—all appear unable to agree on who owned the planes when they were busted.

Second update: a swinging cat door between sensitive U.S. security information and Kuwaiti money
by Margie Burns :
www.margieburns.com/blog/_archives/2006/6/30/2077319.html

Both Judge Alvin Hellerstein,(whose biased rulings have been the reason families of victims of 9/11 as well as ICTS and Securacom have never had their day in court),as well as the new U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey are not just Jewish Americans
but are so Israeli connected they are no more qualified to be in their positions of power in the U.S. government than Jonathan Pollard,(an Israeli spy now serving a lifeterm in a U.S. prison)for instance.

The "Unbreakable Bond" with Israel of the Zionist Judges Controlling the 9-11 Litigation
By Christopher Bollyn
www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/forum.cgi
............................
The former W Bush cyber czar of the Homeland Security Department,Amit Yoran,also turns out to have Israeli connections should have disqualified him from that position as well as his short stent at the CIA's In-Q-Tel operation that both scouts or spys for military or internet related companies both for the purpose of monopolizing technology and spying tech but also for using them to defraud investors in stock scams.
And Homeland Security Department dictator Michael Chertoff our Homeland Security Czar is also more Israeli than American.All these men are of a fanatic, even Zionist world view that does not bode well for Americans under their W Bush shared dictatorship of the American public.
I have lamented previously it has often been American Jews who fought for separation of church and state. Now,post 9/11,Israeli or Zionist Jews seek to undo all that and manipulate American politics using naive Christians' religious mythologies against them to do so.
The cover up of Israeli operatives and U.S. penny stock frauds in the 9/11 tragedy under their fraudulent dictatorship,even though it is a known fact ICTS International was culpable,is just more proof.The fact that Attorney General Mukasey's son Marc is part of Rudy Giuliani's law firm that has aided and profited from penny stock criminal clients is proof that they all know about 9/11's U.S. penny stock connections.Even now ICTS International,although no longer a NASDAQ stock,still trades on the U.S. 'pink sheets' where they are not required to report their financial status or transactions.The cynicism of their frauds(and premeditated murder ?) against American investors where they enjoy more freedom(including to commit fraud unfortunately) than in their own country of Israel as well as ICTS' and Securacom's stock share pump and dump and manipulation of this company's shares to defraud Americans was only exceeded by the cynicism by which they performed their 'security' services on 9/11/01.

EU Officials: Investigate CIA Plane Used
in Renditions Caught with 4 Tons of Cocaine

How did 100 drug planes escape U.S. scrutiny?

The CIA Drug Plane Scandal grew exponentially last week when European
Union officials broke an official 40-year-long silence on the
previously-taboo subject of the CIA's worldwide involvement in drug
trafficking.

Last week Mexico City newspaper El Universal reported that The
European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation has begun an
investigation one of the planes, the cocaine-laden Gulfstream II
business jet (N987SA), for suspected use in CIA "rendition" flights in
which prisoners are covertly transferred to a third country or US-run
detention centers.

The plane crash-landed after running out of fuel in the jungle near
the small town of Tixkokob, 40 miles outside the Yucatan capital of
Merida on September 24th of last year.

The downed aircraft's ties had already been conclusively demonstrated
months ago in investigative reporting by this reporter, as well as by
Bill Conroy of NarcoNews, who first broke news of the Gulfstream II
jet's longstanding use by the CIA and the DEA in operations in
Colombia......

"Round up the usual suspects"
The owners of both planes also owned all three companies involved in a
massive $300 million financial scandal called STOCKGATE, which was
engineered by shadowy Saudi arms merchant and alleged CIA "fixer"
Adnan Khashoggi, currently a fugitive from justice in the case.

The men involved include Stephan Adams and Michael Farkas, who owned
two of three companies used in the hugely successful fraud, which
stole over $300 million from unwary stockholders.

Miami attorney Michael Farkas was the founder of Skyway Aircraft,
which owned the DC9. Farkas is also the American representative of an
Israeli political party representing settlers on the West Bank,
Manhigut Yehudit.

Stephen Adams, a secretive Midwestern media baron and Republican
fund-raiser who owned the Gulfstream in 1999 and 2000, when he was
also personally buying over $1 million in billboard advertising in
support of George W. Bush's 2000 Presidential campaign.

Together with Farkas, Adams owned Holiday RV Superstores, Inc., one of
the companies involved in STOCKGATE. (Farkas controlled a second all
by himself.)

And Adnan Khashoggi, who controlled the third corporation used in the
scheme, Genesis Intermedia, and the mastermind of the financial fraud,
is . Adjectives applied before Khashoggi's name, even in the
mainstream press, usually include "Saudi billionaire," "arms merchant"
and "CIA fixer."

A $300 Million heist with next to no news coverage
In an irony we will not dwell on here, Genesis Intermedia was
incorporated by the longtime lawyer for Barry Seal's drug trafficking
organization.

A lawsuit filed by this individual kept our book "Barry & the boys,"
from reaching bookstores for more than five years.

Ramy El-Batrawi, one of Khashoggi's lieutenants, ran Genesis
Intermedia. El-Batrawi owned a charter airline which testimony during
the Iran Contra Scandal revealed was a CIA subsidiary. His planes flew
TOW missiles to Iran for Oliver North, supposedly to provide funds for
the contras, although most of the money was never recovered or
accounted for.

El-Batrawi also owned the sister ship to the busted DC9(N120NE).

In Khashoggi et al's most recant caper, the looting led to the biggest
brokerage failure in American history.

In a case providing a clear example of what has come to be called
"Wall Street Socialism," American taxpayers were left to pick up much
of the bill, while nominally Republican figures with pig snouts
snuffling through the public trough occasionally come up for air to
rail against infringements on free enterprise.

Not surprisingly, considering the shameful state of American
journalism, the massive fraud received surprisingly little press
coverage. But, one has to wonder:

Would a $300 million bank heist receive a similar cold shoulder?

An unfair advantage

Officials in Central and South American countries were used to seeing
both planes flying in and out on missions which they assumed were for
the American Government

The Gulfstream was well-known in Colombia for flying for the CIA and
DEA. The DC9 airliner from SkyWay was painted to impersonate a plane
from U.S. Homeland Security.

It may even, when and if the truth finally comes out, be shown to have
been one.

Thus, both of the busted American planes had a major advantage for
drug trafficking not available to the ordinary slob on the street.

The question is: Why should anyone care? The answer is simple...

Every time the DEA, or the U.S. Coast Guard trumpets their latest
multi-ton interdiction of cocaine (like one recently of a ship they
busted with 12 tons of cocaine) the bust is of interest and concern to
no one but other drug traffickers.

They haven't taken 12 tons of cocaine off the street. They've just
created an additional marketing opportunity for somebody else's 12
tons of cocaine.

Who might that somebody else be?

Imagination runs riot.

Mexico drug plane used for US 'rendition' flights: report
AFP - Thursday, September 4 09:40 pmMEXICO CITY (AFP) - A private jet
that crash-landed almost one year ago in eastern Mexico carrying 3.3

a newspaper report said here Thursday, citing documents from the
United States and the European Parliament.

New revelations on CIA drug planes
Sunday, 07 September 2008
Michael Webster: Investigative reporter
This is about the strange story of the Gulfstream II jet filled with
3.7 tons of cocaine that crashed in the Yucatan. The Laguna Journal
has learned that the EU through the European Parliament is
investigating the circumstances surrounding the planes used by the
"CIA for alleged drug shipments and extraordinary rendition" flights.

The largest and most respected Mexico City newspaper El Universal
reports that it has obtained documents from the United States and the
European Parliament which "show that the plane flew several times to
Guantanamo, Cuba, presumably to transfer terrorism suspects." It said
the European Parliament was investigating the private Grumman
Gulfstream II, registered by the European Organization for the Safety
of Air Navigation, for suspected use in CIA "drug transport and
rendition" flights in which prisoners are covertly transferred to a
third country or US-run detention centers outside of the USA.
The jet that crashed near Mérida, Yucatán in September, 2007 with
almost 4 tons of cocaine belonging to narco trafficker Joaquín "El
Chapo" Guzmán briefly headed the news today, then mysteriously
disappeared. Not a word has been printed since. Many believe that an
American agency caused the story to be squashed. The story connected
prior CIA use of the plane for clandestine flights from South and
Central America, Europe and Cuba and was accompanied by a top secret
detailed map of those flights.

As reported in the Laguna Journal last year the headline read U.S. CIA
and Homeland planes busted for running drugs. Both planes were
believed to have been carrying Colombian drugs for Guzman. The article
went on to say in the broadening scandal kicked off by two CIA and
Dept of Homeland Security-linked airplanes that were also busted in
Mexico with multi-ton loads of cocaine.

According to the MadCowMorningNews the U.S. corruption investigation
turned up a central figure in that probe and it turns out to be
Guyanese pilot Michael Francis Brassington, a name familiar to readers
who have followed the unfolding and still largely untold story of the
activities and associates of the terrorist hijackers in Florida.

Michael Brassington was the co-pilot on a drug running Lear jet
(N351WB) caught by DEA agents at Orlando Executive Airport in July of
2000 carrying 43 pounds of heroin.

The Guyanese pilot Brassington is implicated by a former Customs agent
as part of a ring of corrupt Customs officials being investigated by
the Dept. of Homeland Security. Mr. Brassington, whose name is a
footnote in the 9/11 investigation, was named in a procurement scandal
over the disputed purchase by the Guyana Defense Forces of two antique
30-year old helicopters from a 'dummy' company in Delaware that sounds
suspiciously like a front for the CIA, the ironically-named "Global X
Group".
9/11 investigation

While researching pilot Brassington's involvement in the Guyana
scandal, they were astonished to discover that Brassington's father
(also named Michael Brassington) has close business ties with one of
the most notorious oligarchs in the Russian Mob, Oleg Deripaska, the
"last man standing" in the brutal Aluminum Wars in Russia during the
1990's for control of that strategic resource.

This information is important in order to gain a full understanding of
the 9/11 attack. Brassington's name surfaced in connection with 9/11
because he had been the co-pilot on the drug-running Lear jet (N351WB)
owned by Wallace J. Hilliard. Hilliard also—and not
coincidentally—owned the Venice FL flight school where Mohamed Atta
and Marwan Al-Shehhi were at the time learning to fly.

One of the other jets with the tail number N987SA records show that it
had changed hands twice over time. Title indicated the plane had been
owned by the U.S. Government but how it ended up in the hands of
suspected drug traffickers remains a mystery.

The Mexican attorney general's office said the blue and white
Gulfstream II that crashed in a remote jungle area on the Yucatán
Peninsula said authorities seized 132 bags of cocaine weighing almost
four tons.

Mad Cow Morning News reporter visited the believed owners of the plane
at the time, "Donna Blue Aircraft Inc" of Coconut Beach FL., and
discovered that it's an "empty office suite with a blank sign out
front."

There was no sign of Donna Blue Aircraft, Inc. , at the address listed
at the Florida Dept. of Corporations, at 4811 Lyons Technology Parkway
#8 in Coconut Beach FL. The new owners of the corporation recently
registered in South Florida were two Brazilians. However, there were,
oddly enough, a half-dozen unmarked police cars parked directly in
front of the empty suite.

The aircraft was registered just ten days before they bought the
plane. So is this just a Front Company? Investigative journalist
Daniel Hopsicker said, "It's a phony front company."

Phone calls to Butters Development, the industrial park's leasing
agent, went unreturned.

According to other news reports, the plane was once owned by
ultra-rich Bush supporter Stephen Adams. (In July, the Federal
Election Commission filed suit against Adams on charges that he
"failed to report and include proper disclaimers on $1,000,000 in
billboard ads during the 2004 Presidential race.")

Not only that, but Mad Cow alleges that Adam's business partner owned
the other American drug plane that was found in Mexico with 5.5 tons
of cocaine in 2006.

Recently-released FAA records from the Gulfstream II business jet that
went down in Mexico with four tons of cocaine reveal that before it
was "parked" in the name of a New York real estate developer with ties
to the Russian Mob, the plane was owned by a secretive Midwestern
media baron and Republican fund-raiser, who had a business partner
who, incredibly, owned the other American drug plane, the DC9,
recently busted in Mexico.

Adams was in business with Miami attorney Michael Farkas, who founded
SkyWay Aircraft, which owned the DC9 busted in Mexico with 5.5 tons of
cocaine aboard.

Moreover at the same time the Bush Ranger extraordinaire Stephen Adams
owned the Gulfstream (N987SA) in 1999 and 2000, he was personally
buying over $1 million of billboard ads for George W. Bush for his
2000 Presidential election bid.

Mad Cow visited Donna Blue's offices and took photos of what appears
to be a sham company. Here's a photo of some unmarked police cars
parked in front Donna Blue Aircraft's empty suite:

Last October, the Austin American Statesman reported the plane had
previously flown to Guantanamo Bay.

Here's a Chicago Public Radio story from October 31, 2007 about the
crashed CIA drug plane.

The crashed drug plane also has been linked to a Bush fundraiser.

Mad Cow Morning news has been covering stories about the CIA and drug
smuggling. The plane was owned by Donna Blue Aircraft, Inc.

Is this a video of the plane? (from this German website )

AUG 25 2008
by Daniel Hopsicker

The exclusive "Cocaine One" series of investigative reports by this
reporter appearing on this website for the past two years made the
news, finally... not in the U.S., but in Mexico City, where it was
cited by a principal in the drug trafficking scandal in newspaper
interviews to support his allegation of selective prosecution against
the DEA.

It is one of several recent new developments in the scandal, which
began two years ago with the capture in the Yucatan by the Mexican
military of two American-registered airplanes.

Both planes had taken off from St. Petersburg FL., flown to Colombia
and Venezuela, and then were busted when they stopped in the Yucatan
to refuel on the way back to Florida.

They were caught carrying an astonishing cumulative total of ten tons
of cocaine, as well as a still-undisclosed amount of heroin.

Total immunity as a perk of employment

Carlos Gutiérrez de Velasco is the paterfamilias of the influential
Veracruz-based family which owned the Casa de Cambio Puebla currency
exchange, accused of laundering enough drug money through U.S. banks
to buy as many as 100 American planes for use in drug-running.

In a recent interview with Mexico City's Reforma newspaper,
Gutierrez, who is also the father of a fugitive from prosecution in
the case, claimed his family is the victim of selective prosecution,
and alleged a cover-up of the involvement of influential Americans.

He called on Mexico's President Felipe Calderon to become personally
involved in forcing the DEA to explain why only Mexicans are being
tracked down and jailed.

The Americans who sold planes to the Sinaloa Cartel buyers enjoy
official immunity from prosecution, Gutierrez suggested, while people
like his fugitive son, José Antonio Gutiérrez, were being tracked down
and hung out to dry.

"Mexican authorities acted based only on information from the United
States," Gutierrez told Reforma, pointing to evidence unearthed by
this reporter's investigation, which revealed the high-level
Republican connections of the people selling planes to the Sinaloa
Cartel.

Ricardo Ravelo, a reporter for Mexico City' Proceso, has already
picked up our evidence of the interlocking ownership of the two
American drug-running airplanes ( a DC9 and a Gulfstream business jet)
busted in the Yucatan.

The owners of both planes were also in business together in a massive
($300 million) financial fraud, we have previously reported, along
with CIA fixer and Saudi arms merchant Adnan Khashoggi.

Niega casa de cambio vínculos con el narco

Entrevista: Carlos Gutiérrez de Velasco Hoyos. Señalan socios que PGR
fundamenta su acusación en suposiciones que no han sido verificadas

(23 junio 2008).- REFORMA / Staff

La familia Gutiérrez de Velasco, fundadora y accionista de la
desaparecida Casa de Cambio Puebla, pidió al Presidente Felipe
Calderón revisar la acusación de lavado de dinero contra José Antonio
Gutiérrez de Velasco Hoyos, pues consideran que se integró con
suposiciones de la DEA y no con hechos concretos.

La PGR busca a José Antonio Gutiérrez, director del centro cambiario,
luego de que jueces federales ordenaran su aprehensión y detención
provisional con fines de extradición a Estados Unidos, por
presuntamente permitir transferencias del Cártel de Sinaloa para
comprar aviones en la Unión Americana.

Carlos Gutiérrez de Velasco Hoyos, hermano del evadido, manifestó en
entrevista con REFORMA que la persecución a su familiar se basa en un
expediente estadounidense donde no se tocan a ciudadanos de aquel país
y donde los datos no están del todo corroborados por México.

"Nunca hemos estado ligados al narcotráfico ni nada ilegal, los socios
de CCP son empresarios de Puebla y Veracruz que tienen negocios de
muchos años, gente muy arraigada en la zona y por eso en una carta que
enviamos a Calderón lo invitamos a que pida referencias a los
Gobernadores de ambos estados sobre quiénes son los socios de CCP.

"La autoridad mexicana ha actuado con información sólo de Estados
Unidos, tanto que el día que intervienen la matriz de la casa de
cambio en Puebla, los funcionarios de CCP ven a tres personas, güeros,
altos, fornidos, de traje, supervisando lo que hacía la PGR. Desde
nuestro punto de vista esos eran de la DEA.

"Mi hermano solamente es socio en un 2 por ciento...No impulsó el
narcotráfico, si le llaman el empresario de más alto nivel a un
director de una empresa que ganaba un promedio de 90 a 100 mil pesos y
que tiene ese porcentaje accionario, pues yo creo que es un mini
empresario", señaló........

Acercamientos en EU

Carlos Gutiérrez no es ni ha sido accionista de la CCP, pero habla en
nombre de su familia e incluso ventila que han recurrido a Los Pinos y
a la PGR para explicar la situación, y también se han acercado a las
autoridades de EU.

El entrevistado dice que pidieron a EU corroborar e incluir en el
proceso una información del periodista Daniel Hopsicker y su website
"Madcow", donde señala que los aviones del Cártel de Sinaloa eran de
propietarios de la Unión Americana.

"EU ofrece bajar los cargos si él se presenta, pero no sabemos primero
qué quiera decir esto de bajar los cargos, (dicen que) no se incluiría
en el juicio lo que dice 'Madcow', que los aviones tienen propietarios
en EU".

Según Gutiérrez, en el expediente donde solicitan la extradición de su
familiar, EU revela que los estadounidenses que vendieron los aviones
a los narcotraficantes, aceptaron saber que sus compradores eran
criminales. No obstante, los vendedores no fueron perseguidos.

Debido a este panorama, su hermano no piensa entregarse y en México
buscará un amparo.

Así lo dijo

"El día que intervienen la matriz de la casa de cambio en Puebla iban
tres personas, güeros, altos, fornidos, de traje, supervisando lo que
hacía la PGR. Desde nuestro punto de vista esos eran de la DEA".

Carlos Gutiérrez de Velasco Hoyos

Flight logs reveal secret renditionStephen Grey
THE secret flight plans of American military planes have revealed for the first time how European countries helped send prisoners, including British citizens, to the Guantanamo Bay prison camp.

Despite widespread criticism of alleged human rights abuses and torture at the US base in Cuba, a Sunday Times investigation has shown that at least five European countries gave the United States permission to fly nearly 700 terrorist suspects across their territory.

Three years ago, The Sunday Times published flight logs of CIA civilian jets in Europe, setting off a controversy over the whether countries across the continent have been secretly involved in America's rendition of terrorist suspects to countries that carry out torture.

The row is now set to be reignited. Inquiries by Ana Gomes, a Portuguese member of the European parliament, have uncovered not only more CIA flight logs but also more sensitive military flight plans, which until now have remained a closely guarded secret.

American-backed killer militias strut across Iraq

The logs show how most prisoners changed planes at a Turkish military airbase and flew across Greek, Italian and Portuguese airspace. Others reached Cuba after touching down in Spain, whose governing socialist party once expressed indignation at conditions in Guantanamo.

The flight logs show that three Britons — Shafiq Rasul, Jamal Udeen and Asif Iqbal — were flown across Europe to Cuba on January 14, 2002. Moazzam Begg, another Briton, was taken by the same route to Guantanamo on February 2, 2003; and Binyam Mohamed, a British resident whose release the British government is now trying to negotiate, arrived in Cuba after crossing Europe in a special flight in September 2004.

According to the flight plans, the first 23 prisoners to arrive at Guantanamo — including another British citizen, Feroz Abbasi, then 21, and an Australian, David Hicks — had arrived at the American naval base in Cuba after flying from the Moron airbase in Spain.

Abbasi has claimed in a statement that prisoners were abused within hours of arriving. "We were made to sit on our heels, one foot over the other, supported by one foot's toes alone, for hours. Some of us were old, weak, fatigued, and injured — they were the ones to drop first in the searing Caribbean heat."

Described by the Pentagon as the "worst of the worst" from Al-Qaeda and the Taliban, the images of prisoners such as Abbasi dressed in orange jumpsuits, their heads shaved and shackled by their wrists and ankles, shocked the world. Within a day, Donald Rumsfeld, then US defence secretary, announced that the Geneva conventions would not apply to what were now called "enemy combatants".

Last week, Europe's leading watchdog on human rights alleged that European countries had breached the international convention against torture by giving the US secret permission to use its airspace.

Thomas Hammarberg, the Council of Europe's commissioner for human rights, said: "What happened at Guantanamo was torture and it is illegal to provide facilities or anything to make this torture possible. Under the law, European governments should have intervened and should not have given permission to let these flights happen."

Gomes added: "It's clear to me that Guantanamo could not have been created without the involvement of European countries."

Methods used at Guantanamo Bay, condemned by Britain's Court of Appeal as a legal "black hole" and as a "monstrous failure of justice" by one law lord, have included the prolonged use of isolation, sleep deprivation, and use of stress positions. "These are methods that have been declared as unlawful by the European Court of Human Rights," Hammarberg said.

The military flight plans show that all key flights arriving in Guantanamo had come across European airspace either through Spain or the Incirlik airbase in southeastern Turkey. The Sunday Times compared the military flight plans against a database compiled by Reprieve, the British-based charity that represents Guantanamo prisoners, of when prisoners first weighed in at the camp.

The investigation, cross-checked against other Pentagon documents, shows for the first time which prisoner arrived on which flight at Guantanamo, and by what route. At least 170 other prisoners flew over Spanish territory, more than 700 crossed Portuguese space, and more than 680 were transshipped at Incirlik. Most flights also crossed Greek and Italian airspace, according to a source in European air traffic control.

On February 2 2003, for example, a US Air Force C-17 Globemaster plane took off from Incirlik with 27 prisoners on board for Cuba. The same day, prisoner number 558 weighed in at 136lb (62kg) at the camp. He can be named as Moazzam Begg, now 39, from Birmingham, who was released in January 2005, and has never been charged with a crime.

Interviewed by phone last week, Begg recalled: "Inside the plane there was a chain around our waist, and it connected to cuffs around my wrists, which were tied in the back, and to my ankles. We were seated but it was so painful not being able to speak, to hear, to breathe properly, to look, to turn left or right, to move your hands, stretch your legs, or anything." At the time flights were landing in Spain and crossing Spanish airspace, socialist leaders there were expressing "indignation" over conditions in Guantanamo. Now the socialists are in government after winning an election in March 2004 just after the Madrid train bombings and they are being asked to defend Spain's continued collaboration with American operations. Under international law, government and military planes can cross another country's territory only with diplomatic permission.

In a statement to the European parliament on the visits of CIA planes to Spain, the foreign minister Miguel Angel Moratinos has testified: "Our territory may have been used not to commit crimes on it, but as a stopover on the way to committing crime in another country."

Spain, it has now emerged, had a specific agreement with the US to allow flights and visits to Spanish airbases for American planes.

In Portugal, the foreign minister Luis Amado has said flights across his country's airspace took place "under the aegis of the UN and Nato and that Portugal naturally follows the principle of good faith in the relations with its allies". Nato's role in Guantanamo stems from a secret agreement made in Brussels on October 4 2001 by all Nato members, including Britain. Although never made public, Lord Robertson, the former British defence secretary who was later Nato's secretary-general, explained that day that Nato had agreed to provide "blanket overflight clearances for the United States and other allies' aircraft for military flights related to operations against terrorism".

Today, Nato is more coy about its role in helping send prisoners to Guantanamo.

In a letter to Gomes, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, the current secretary-general, said no Nato planes had "flown to or from Guantanamo Bay" and that Nato "as an organisation has no involvement or co-ordinating role in providing clearance or overflight rights for other flights". Turkey, meanwhile, has declared that its agencies had "reached no findings regarding any unacknowledged deprivation of liberty conducted by foreign agencies within the territory of the republic of Turkey or any transport by aircraft or otherwise of the persons deprived of their liberty".

In London, Clive Stafford Smith, legal director of Reprieve, said, with America threatening that Guantanamo prisoners faced the death penalty, European governments had made "pious statements" that they would never send prisoners to the US without obtaining assurances they would not be executed.

Stafford Smith added: "Some European governments, it's now clear, systematically assisted in clandestine flights and illegal prisoner transfers to Guantanamo Bay. We need a full investigation and Europeans need to face their responsibility for these crimes."

Mexico Drug Plane Used For US 'Rendition' Flights

Polish prosecutors obtain document showing east European country hosted secret US centre.

MEXICO CITY - A private jet that crash-landed almost one year ago in eastern Mexico carrying 3.3 tons of cocaine had previously been used for CIA "rendition" flights, a newspaper report said here Thursday, citing documents from the United States and the European Parliament.

The plane was carrying Colombian drugs for the fugitive leader of Mexico's Sinaloa cartel, Joaquin "Chapo" Guzman, when it crash-landed in the Yucatan peninsula on September 24, El Universal reported.

The daily said it had obtained documents from the United States and the European Parliament which "show that that plane flew several times to Guantanamo, Cuba, presumably to transfer terrorism suspects."

It said the European Parliament was investigating the private Grumman Gulfstream II, registered by the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation, for suspected use in CIA "rendition" flights in which prisoners are covertly transfered to a third country or US-run detention centers.

It also said the US Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) logbook registered that the plane had traveled between US territory and the US military base in Guantanamo.

It said the FAA registered its last owner as Clyde O'Connor in Pompano Beach, Florida.

Extraordinary rendition has been harshly criticized since it began in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States.

Polish prosecutors get document on secret CIA centre

Polish prosecutors have obtained a document showing the country hosted a secret US centre earlier this decade, the Gazeta Wyborcza daily reported Friday.

The document, seen by sources Gazeta Wyborcza did not name, is a two-page Polish secret service memorandum written in late 2005 or early 2006 following allegations in the US media of secret CIA prisons in ex-communist central European states.

According to Gazeta, the document confirms the existence of a secret CIA centre, but does not explicitly say it served as a prison for terror suspects as has been alleged.

Gazeta also reported the document says the secret centre was set up after a 2002 US-Polish agreement on battling terrorism.

Polish prosecutors recently launched an investigation into the long-running allegations of a secret CIA jail for suspected terror kingpins near Szymany, northeast Poland.

According to Gazeta, the head of the secret services presented the document in 2006 to two ministers from the then conservative Law and Justice (PiS) government as well as to Poland's chief prosecutor during a meeting.

Gazeta reported that former chief prosecutor Janusz Kaczmarek confirmed he met with the ministers but refused to disclose what occurred. The ex-ministers declined to speak with Gazeta.

Polish authorities have consistently rejected claims in a string of media reports and a subsequent Council of Europe investigation that Warsaw allowed the CIA, the US intelligence agency, to run a secret interrogation centre for captured terror suspects in Poland from 2003-2005.

But in a report released in June 2007, Council of Europe investigator Dick Marty claimed the alleged prison was part of a "global spider's web" of detentions and illegal transfers spun out around the world by Washington and its allies.

Marty also claimed that Romania had hosted a similar facility, but authorities there have also flatly denied his accusation.

Both Poland and Romania have become staunch US allies since the collapse of their communist regimes in 1989.
