There is a very interesting article on the MSNBC.com website about the mysterous Gulfstream V aircraft used by a USA CIA front company to transport terror suspects from the USA to other countries (like Pakistan, Saudia Arabia) to allow interrigation of suspects in ways not allowed in the USA or our allies. I recall a thread on this subject, seeking more info about these flight on these boards several months ago.
