(Lists) CIA Planes, Europe Joint Ventures/Agreements: Show Europe Complicit

CLIP AND SAVE LIST OF PLANES BELOW. It will make following the news (lawsuits, prosecutions, investigations) much easier!

At a meeting in Athens, Greece, on January 22, 2003, the European Union states gave the United States permission to kidnap Muslims off the street (renditions) and use European airports and airspace.

The minutes of the meeting are at the above link. That's all the proof you need. Here is the relevant part of the linked file:

"Both sides [EU, US] agreed on the areas where cooperation could be improved i.a. [inter alia (Latin: among other things)], the exchange of data between border management services, *increased use of European transit facilities* to support the return of *criminal/inadmissible aliens*, co-ordination with regard to false documents training (US side will provide the EU with a paper suggesting modalities for the coordination of false documents training) and improving the *cooperation in removals*."

So, Colin Powell is right: the European governments are being hypocrites by denying they knew about renditions and torture flights.

INDIVIDUAL AGREEMENTS FOR 25-PLUS CTICs -- JOINT SPY VENTURES WITH CIA

Beyond knowing about CIA rendition flights, the Europeans are cooperating fully in them. The CIA has secret CTICs (Counterterrorist Intelligence Centers) in over 25 countries, including some supposed Iraq-war opponents like France, Germany, and Sweden. These are joint-venture spy-nests with the local intelligence service (Italy's SISMI, for example) and military. The CIA supplies about 20 agents for each and an about-$20-million-dollars' annual budget. Here is a list of the countries with CTICs:

EUROPE
1. Albania
2. Bosnia
3. Britain
4. Bulgaria
5. France
6. Germany
7. Hungary
8. Italy
9. Kosovo (province of Serbia)
10. Macedonia
11. Poland
12. Portugal
13. Romania
14. Spain
15. Sweden

ASIA
16. Afghanistan
17. Indonesia
18. Pakistan
19. Phillipines
20. Thailand
21. Uzbekistan

MIDDLE EAST, NORTH AFRICA
22. Algeria
23. Egypt
24. Jordan
25. Libya
26. Morocco
27. Saudi Arabia
28. Turkey
29. Yemen

OTHER
30. Australia
31. Canada

In the spring of 2005, the CIA's Deputy Director for Operations (the head of the espionage directorate), Jose Rodriguez, told House and Senate intelligence committees that 25 CTICs had been instrumental in arresting over 3000 suspected terrorists. Many of these have been renditioned; flown to the jails of the CIA, US military, and brutal regimes (Egypt, etc.); tortured; and subjected to indefinite imprisonment -- all without any legal proceedings except, sometimes, kangaroo courts in countries where they were transported to.

The renditions and imprisonments have taken place mainly in the above countries. Human rights groups and other investigators in those countries have a lot to learn.


US FIRMS, PERSONS TO BE SUED FOR CIA'S TORTURE, EVILS

Gettng governments of the US and the above countries to do anything about CIA abuses will be hard. However, people can be sued for these abuses when they can be identified in the US and other countries more or less subject to the rule of law.

In the US, Aero Contractors (NC) and its former president Norman Richardson, Richmor Aviation (NY) and its owner Mahlon Richards, CIA shell companies and their lawyers like Dean Plakias (MA) and Scott Caplan (WA) -- these are but a few of the many US firms that could potentially be served legal actions by victims of CIA kidnapping and torture, based on the existence of the landmark lawsuit filed Dec. 6 by CIA victim Khaled el-Masri of Germany. Already Aero and Plakias have heard from Masri's lawyers. Then there are CIA officials like James Pavitt, its retired DDO (Deputy Director for Operations). The DDO reportedly is the specific officer who approves kidnappings and torture measures for specific victims. The DDOs can be gone after. Pavitt was the DDO from Aug. 1999 to Aug. 2004, succeeded by Stephen Kappes (Aug. to Nov. 2004). The Nation says the DDO since Nov. 2004 is Jose Rodriguez.  http://www.thenation.com/doc/20041213/vest

BESIDES PERSONS ALREADY CHARGED, like the alleged organizer of the Abu Omar rendition in Italy, who reportedly is in Punta Gorda, Florida, who else might be liable, criminally or civilly, for Abu Omar's Feb. 2003 abduction from Italy and transport via US planes and air bases to Egypt? Omar, when briefly released, called home to report what happened to him and got rearrested for that. He was tortured and maimed, allegedly in the presence of CIA officer Robert Lady, and remains imprisoned by his Egyptian torturers.

There are numerous current and retired employees of the CIA's Operations Directorate who potentially could be sued for CIA renditions and related abuses. Some of them have signed fat book contracts and are reaping large speaking fees bragging about their outrages. An example is Michael Scheuer, the McLean, VA, man who was in charge of snatchs from 1995, when the first victim was seized, until June 1999. There were some 50 victims in that period. Since 9/11, there have been 150 to 200 snatches.

As for Jose Rodriguez, before he became the CIA DDO in late 2004, he was the head of the CIA Counterterrorism Center, CTC. The CTC is the part of the CIA that carries out renditions. So for ones done in that time frame, Rodriguez could be liable personally. No wonder he is so publicity shy.  http://www.refdag.nl/artikel/1238465/CIA%20spil%20van%20groot%20antiterreurnetwerk.html

AERO CONTRACTORS is another potential defendent and is being sued by the Lebanese-German Khaled el-Masri and the ACLU. Aero Contractors is a real, rather than a shell, company that provides the pilots and flight crews for most CIA planes. The planes are owned by the CIA through phony companies fronted by lawyers. However, the victims' lawyers can serve papers on the CIA-front lawyers, who are known, and thus secure liens in US courts against the CIA's planes.

A list of CIA shell companies for owning aircraft (while leaving actual operations to Aero Contractors and other CIA contractors) appears at the end of this article, along with their agents (lawyers) for legal service.
