Before President Bush proposed giving the Mexican government more than a billion dollars in aid to fight the war on drugs last week...We noticed a strange phenomenon.

Either it’s a series of coincidences,
Or it’s evidence of serious corruption...

They have a word for it in Spanish:

MARIO MENENDEZ RODRIGUEZ "Narcoavion, that’s how we say it"

Drug Planes.

Geopolitics of Drugs: CIA's Air America Still Flying With Tons Of Cocaine Aboard

Before President Bush proposed giving the Mexican government more than a billion dollars in aid to fight the war on drugs last week...We noticed a strange phenomenon.

Either it’s a series of coincidences,
Or it’s evidence of serious corruption...

They have a word for it in Spanish:

MARIO MENENDEZ RODRIGUEZ "Narcoavion, that’s how we say it"

Drug Planes.

And if you try to figure what happened to one of these planes, you’ll discover just how little you’re allowed to know

SECRETARY: "I’m not allowed to answer any questions regarding the aircraft"

...about the world of private jets and drugs.
So let’s start out with what we are allowed to know.
On a late Sunday Night last month, an American Gulfstream two private jet, crash-landed into the jungles of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula.

It managed to avoid catching fire, skidding across the jungle floor, and splitting into three pieces. Mexican TV showed images of the plane and its cargo... dozens of "military style" duffel bags containing several metric tons of cocaine. [1]

The reason this made the news is the history of the plane, tail number N987SA...Starting in 2003, the plane made several trips from Washington and Connecticut to Guantanamo Bay. This led to questions of its use by military or intelligence agencies. Since... how many people really fly from Connecticut to Guantanamo?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Might as well link to the original content at Chicago Public Radio.  They deserve serious kudos for even covering this story, which is largely ignored by the "main stream media".

      from thought-criminal.org, which itself is a word-for-word cut-and-paste from Chicago Public Radio, your suggestion seems not only fair but key to understanding this story. And the story's pretty amazing.

      Somewhere in someone's fantasy world, the American CIA is helping to provide neo-natal care units and school books for oppressed people in a never-ending struggle to thwart the forces of evil and spread democracy across the globe.

      But I can't think of a single CIA tangent that doesn't head straight toward drugs, sex, kidnapping, torture, murder, and all the rest of those 'pre-9/11' evils---named in virtually every religious canon centuries ago---that we now embrace as skills to be employed 'in our national interest.'

      How long will it be before 'our national interest' again includes moral behavior?

  •  So do I have this right? (0+ / 0-)

    An airplane with permission to land at Guantanamo Bay crashed into the jungle and was found stuffed with cocaine?  

    I don't think I would call that evidence circumstantial.

    times since its trips to Gitmo, so more info is needed on regisrtation history. This aircraft is currently registered to DONNA BLUE AIRCRAFT INC of Coconut Creek, FL. This G2 was built in 1975. It's 32 years old and thus there is high likelihood it was sold into the used aircraft market in the last few years.

    Could be coincidental, maybe not.

    The flights from CT to Guantanamo and DC to Guantanamo are, obviously, Sen. Lieberman traveling to personally insure every single captive is properly tortured. The drug flights are necessary to finance his re-election. Hey! IOKIYALieberman.
