The article reports that a DHC-8 with reg N505LL that was parked at AMS for two days. It is suspected to be a "Guantanamo Express" plane that came from IST and went on to Reykjavik (presumably KEF, I suppose). The article says it is property of Path Corporation, apparently a cover for the CIA. It was seen several times in Kabul, according to http://spyflight.co.uk
The Dutch foreign ministry is investigating the flight.
Did any a.netter see this plane recently, and where?

Interesting list, and just as reliable as every other conspiracy theory.
Personally I couldn't care less if they dumped some terrorists over the sea, it's humane compared to what those terrorists would do to use given the chance after all.
The entire row is just another attempt at a smear campaign against the USA though. "Secret CIA torture prisons" have been reported without any evidence except anonymous "accounts from ex-CIA operatives" (whose authenticity cannot be proven and even if it could there stories can't) for decades, the most outrageous place them as far back as the 1930s when the CIA didn't even exist.

Quoting MD80fanatic (Reply 11): Jwenting, your application for US citizenship has been *APPROVED*.
Can you get me that in writing? If possible complete with my greencard
Can't wait to get away from this hellhole of a socialist workers' paradise.
Quoting Airforum (Reply 13): Finally. All Dutchies were waiting for that to happen...
Nope, just a few moonbats. Sadly moonbats are not an endangered species here and the firearms prohibition means sensible people can't work towards making them such.
Anyway, who cares whether the company has an "operating license" for the country. They're flying the aircraft on a government contract (supposedly, if the conspiracy theorists are right) and governments don't need those.

There are several investigations by Human Rights Watch, EC and non-EC countries of these 'CIA' aircraft and flights over or via EC countries that are believed to be going to the 'hidden' prisons for terrorists in Poland and Romania (at ex-USSR air bases). These are very concerned of their countries being used for refuling or transfers points for what could be people having their rights violated against international and national agreements. This included using airports in the Canary Islands, Shannon, and other locations in EC and non-EC countries in Europe. While not all of these flight may have involved illegal prisoners, (some could contain legal spies, CIA agents, people in legitment intellegance matters important to the USA and the world) sufficient questions have been raised to trigger investigations. Some of those investigations include looking at a records of aircraft movements in the EC.

And are any of those by groups that do not have an anti-US agenda and therefore know the outcome before the "investigation"?
No, there aren't. These groups know what they want to report, they just need some time to make up a story that looks believable to the gullible.
If there were hundreds of thousands of people "being disappeared" by the EEEEVIL CIA and put in secret prisons all over the world, pretty much everyone would know at least one person who'd disappeared and would know the location of one or more of those prisons.
I know several people who'd surely be prime targets, and quite a few people on this site would surely no longer be among us for their openly anti-US attitude.
The very fact that they're still there shows that the conspiracy theorists are just that.
