N.Y. Billing Dispute = Secret CIA Flights

Thu Sep 01, 2011 7:21 pm

You know now that the CIA was using PUBLIC AIRCRAFT using PUBLIC CHARTERS OF COURSE the tails of the planes are automatically picked up and put into the worldwide computer databases and any dork with an internet connection can go to a company that suppliers plane tracking services and input the tail number of live details if its over North America or Europe (free, online) or rest of the world (pay) like the airlines.

WOW. Totally inept.

And this is a big deal why...?

By the way, from the article:

"The Richmor plane — tail number N85VM — was identified publicly in 2005 after it was used in the rendition of Abu Omar, a Muslim cleric who was snatched off the streets of Milan and flown to Egypt. The company was managing the plane for its owner, Phillip Morse, vice chairman of Fenway Sports Group, parent company of the Boston Red Sox."

So from this we can deduce that the Boston Red Sox are undercover CIA operatives. That explains why John Lackey is so bad this year.

Can't be...we'd have seen a lot more Yankees "mysteriously" disappear this season if this was the case.  

Anyways, this is hardly news. The CIA has been doing this for years--check out "Ghost Plane" by Stephen Grey if you're looking for some good reading on the subject.

The renditions aren't news, what's newsworthy is that the CIA never tried to quash ANY of the documents, which contain pretty personal information, like the home phone numbers of top CIA officials involved in the renditions.

Then again, had this information been hacked, you would probably see it plastered all over CNN.

Bingo. The story is that a lawsuit over payments disclosed a number interesting details.

Interesting article...I assume they stopped using this company after the CIA took control of those 2 white 767s always parked at Dulles? Or are those 767s just leased as well?
