EU Officials: Investigate CIA Rendition Plane Caught with 4 Tons of Coke
The CIA Drug Plane Scandal grew exponentially last week when European Union officials broke an official 40-year-long silence on the previously-taboo subject of the CIA’s worldwide involvement in drug trafficking.
Last week Mexico City newspaper El Universal reported that The European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation has begun an investigation one of the planes, the cocaine-laden Gulfstream II business jet (N987SA), for suspected use in CIA "rendition" flights in which prisoners are covertly transferred to a third country or US-run detention centers.
The plane crash-landed after running out of fuel in the jungle near the small town of Tixkokob, 40 miles outside the Yucatan capital of Merida on September 24th of last year.
The downed aircraft’s ties had already been conclusively demonstrated months ago in investigative reporting by this reporter, as well as by Bill Conroy of NarcoNews, who first broke news of the Gulfstream II jet's longstanding use by the CIA and the DEA in operations in Colombia.
