CIA Plane in Big Aussie-American Heroin Bust

“Newly-obtained FAA registration records reveal that the American “mystery plane” busted this July with 35 kilos of heroin at an airport outside Sydney, Australia was a CIA plane. At least, it had been when it rolled off the assembly line 40 years earlier,  courtesy a CIA deal with the U.S. Forest Service. And the CIA never sells off its planes. smokey-dokeyThe American-registered ‘mystery plane’ in Australia was a Merlin III twin–engine turbo-prop ( tail number N224HR). 

FAA registration records show it was commissioned in the early 70’s by the U.S. Forest Service from aircraft manufacturer Swearingen in San Antonio, part of an operation to “sheep-dip” CIA planes through the U.S. Forest Service.

“Sheep-dip” is  spook-speak for concealing the source or true ownership of something, or, at the very least, hiding it from Congress.  When the plane was ordered, the CIA was merely anticipating Congressional calls for reining in the CIA, through (tellingly) forcing the Agency to divest  its proprietary airlines.

400-Kilo Drug Bust at Paris Hilton’s Ranch in Costa Rica

 

paris-hiltonA private runway on a 6000-acre ranch in Costa Rica belonging to celebrity Paris Hilton was the scene of a major drug raid last week netting a half-dozen suspects in the middle of a multimillion-dollar drug deal.

According to intelligence and law enforcement officials in the beleaguered Central American country, agents of the Costa Rica Federal Judicial Investigation Organization (OIJ) seized a single-engine Cessna that was idling on the runway as it was being loaded with 400 kilos of cocaine.

The CIA Double-Dip: Drugs, Fraud, & the JFK Assassination

A six-year long investigation into the drug trafficking operation in St Petersburg Florida that was exposed when two planes were busted in the Yucatan carrying a total of 10 tons of cocaine revealed the planes had all been “parked,” or “sheep-dipped,” in the names of straw owners to conceal the CIA’s involvement.

The composition of this group of straw owners, composed of a fascinating collection of people with often interlocking connections through various other enterprises, says a lot about the circles the CIA runs in.

Among the few who lent their names to the registration of more than one of these CIA planes is the granddaughter of Texas oil tycoon H.L. Hunt, who back in the 1930’s was known as the richest man in America. Hunt’s other singular distinction is having been accused by Russian newspaper Pravda of being behind the JFK assassination.

Donald Sterling’s New York "Slip & Fall"

 Beleaguered LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling  numbers among his associates at least three figures who were involved in a troubled “rogue” drug operation  run by Tampa ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement) that consigned America’s reputation into the hands of people that other branches of the U.S. Government—even casino regulators in Nevada—wouldn’t trust not to cheat at penny-ante poker.

2009-07-14-missingflash_main1

Four developments during the past few days in New York City offer dramatic evidence that questions recently raised here (and elsewhere) about the links to organized crime of real estate mogul, sexual sleazeball, casual racist, and soon-to-to-ex LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling are both serious and well-founded.

Donald Sterling’s Secret History

Since his highly injudicious comments about Asian girlfriends, Magic Johnson and race almost a month ago, the name Donald T. Sterling, casual racist, parasitic landlord, and thoroughly-disgraced owner of the NBA’s L. A. Clippers, has been much in the news.

reptoid2The more salacious elements are on the record. He ran newspaper ads for “hostesses” interested in meeting “celebrities and sports stars.” He hired a former model to be an assistant GM for the Clippers.

Yet only now are more serious questions beginning to be asked about some of the more improbable aspects of what might be called “The Donald Sterling Story.”

Tampa ‘Black Ice” drug operation tied to organized crime

Doug McClain learned the ins and outs of financial fraud while working for Robert Colgin Wilson, who—far more than “The Wolf of Wall Street”—exemplified the role of American organized crime in financial fraud during the last quarter of the 20th Century.

Emmert-ColvinWilson was no fly by night. His roots ran deep. When he was convicted of securities fraud in the mid-70’s, his lawyer during the trial and appeal was the same Dallas attorney, Emmett Colvin, who a decade earlier represented Jack Ruby during his trial for the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald.

When the Tampa office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) partnered with McClain and other members of organized crime in a still-unexplained drug trafficking operation that brought tons of cocaine into the U.S. between 2003 and 2008, they were getting a known quantity. 

When that effort went awry, Doug McClain’s last big play occurred with the hurried stripping out of a coal mining company in the coal fields of Kentuckybetween July 2010, when he and his crew became the owners of eight separate coal minesand May 2011, when the federal government stepped in and call a halt to the thieving.

The Enterprise & Southern-style organized crime

RCWILSONThe man who facilitated the purchase of several DC-9's for SkyWay Aircraft in St. Petersburg Florida was the company's  largest shareholder, Doug McClain Sr.'s Argyll Equities.  So how did he get such an important job in such a thriving Enterprise?

During the 90's, Doug McClain Sr. belonged to an organized crime ring run by Robert Colgin Wilson, an obese six-foot-five-inch con man, whoaccording to the Wall Street Journal (“High, Wide &…” Feb 24, 1997 fast-talked investors in the U.S. and Canada out of more than $100 million  in the 1990's alone.

“Wilson dazzled his victims by treating them to jaunts to Las Vegas and the Cayman Islands on his luxurious corporate jets, promising super-high returns in supposedly risk-less investments, and employing high-profile, unwitting company directors –among them Chip Carter, son of the former President, and Carter budget chief Bert Lance,” the Journal reported.

“At one point Wilson was hawking his loan-finding services with Dennis Levine, who had been jailed in the 1980s with Ivan Boesky in an insider-trading scheme.”
