While not the NEWEST news, this was something that was new to me and I found quite interesting. I am sure the event has many people questioning and many theories continue to surface on what exactly happened. But if it was something I have never heard of, you may have not either. Its creates a narrative that challenges the “Americans have never been involved in the drug war” claim and there are no American Drug Lords, which is crazy to me.
Check this story out and come to your own conclusions. Is it still relevant today?
Counter Current News had this to say:
According to Awarenessact, “8 years ago, Gulfstream II, later called “Cocaine 2″, crashed in the middle of the jungle in Mexico’s Yucatan carrying 4 tons of cocaine. This event and its aftermath changed forever an official narrative of the war on drugs which has for years been pushing the notion that there is no significant American involvement in the global drug trade, and no American Drug Lords.”
The jet’s fuselage broke apart on impact, spilling cocaine for a length of hundreds of meters.
The Gulf Stream II jet, aircraft #N987SA, was allegedly used to transport CIA Rendition prisoners from Europe to America to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba crash-landed Sept 24, 2007, in Mexico carrying over 4 tons of cocaine. It is suspected to Gulf-stream jet ran out of fuel as it traveled from Columbia to the United States.
FAA records list the plane as belonging to Atef Hanna of Tarpon Springs, FL, but at the time of the incident, it was registered to Donna Blue Aircraft, Inc. a front for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE claims it sold the aircraft to DEA suspected drug smugglers as part of an undercover operation immediately prior to the crash in Mexico.
The ICE undercover agent who brokered the deal, Don Whittington, pled guilty to federal tax charges in 1987. According to an affidavit accidentally unsealed then subsequently released, Whittington is currently under investigation for using a Colorado Springs resort and spa to launder profits from the sale of this and otheraircraft used in smuggling busts.
