CIA extraordinary rendition plane crashes in Mexico, filled with cocaine

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

A very strange story from The Daily Kos blog... There's more info in their story:
CIA Torture Jet wrecks with 4 Tons of COCAINE

This Florida based Gulfstream II jet aircraft # N987SA crash landed on September 24, 2007 after it ran out of fuel over Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula it had a cargo of several tons of Cocaine on board now documents have turned up on both sides of the Atlantic that link this Cocaine Smuggling Gulfstream II jet aircraft # N987SA that crashed in Mexico to the CIA who used it on at least 3 rendition flights from Europe and the USA to Guantanamo's infamous torture chambers between 2003 to 2005.

The whole thing smacks of the Contra affair of the 1980s. I guess as a sort of "black" airplane, this plane would have been as useful to the drug dealers as to the CIA, slipping under the radar, as it were, of security forces. Or perhaps there's more to it than that...
