News Article On Secret CIA Terror Transfer Flights

Tue Dec 28, 2004 12:47 am

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.

I wonder what they meant with that, though "The airplane is a Gulfstream V turbojet". Turbojet?? Ok ok... sorry for being picky Big grin

The Sunday Times (of London) wrote that there was a 737 BBJ doing these flights as well. I'll see if I can find the article again and get the N#, but as I recall there were many pictures of it on this website.
