Evergreen International is kind of like a big dysfunctional family, it's got MX, ground handling, charters, helicopters, an agricultural division, heavy maintenance and a rather large aircraft called the Spruce Goose...(its in the museum in McMinnville OR about 45min south of PDX)
Their 747 fleet is either leased out on deicated routes or on one-off charters (they ran a goat-roped relief charter into Kabul last winter) and a LOT of military charter work. And they have some of the oldest 747s in the world (really too cheap to buy a newer set...). Then there are the misc. mail contracts, DHL contracts, small package stuff with their fleet of DC-9s.
As for CIA connections, like any CIA front company there are no overt ties, although there is a lot of specualtion and rumors about their involvement with CIA front companies dating back to Air America.(I found some stuff awhile ago, but can;t find it now that implicated EZ ties to several CIA front operations) Their government ties are very strong, a good example is their work since 9/11 (rumor has it they dropped a lease (I think it was Qantas) operation to start taking military work).
And yes, no realtions to Evergreen (the shipping company) or EVA (although they do ground handling for EVA in a couple of places).
Just my 2 bits...
is that a light at the end of the tunnel or just a train?
