Mexico Drug Bust connected to John Negroponte's Dept.Homeland Security,9/11

by Tony Ryals Friday, May. 26, 2006 at 12:37 PM

The DC-9 busted in Ciudad Del Carmen,Campeche, Mexico on April 11 by the Mexican army is clearly connected to Republican business owners,the Titan Corp of San Diego,and penny stock fraud.It is also connected to Huffmann Aviation of Venice, Florida that played a role in 9/11. And Howard Dean used it in his 2004 presidential campaign !

5.5 Ton Drug Bust connected to John Negroponte's Homeland Security,Bush Administration,9/11

Below,Headline today in Daniel Hopsicker's http://www.madcowprod.com :

Porter Goss Resignation Mystery Solved
DC-9 With 5.5 Tons Of Cocaine Was CIA Plane

May 25 2006--Venice,FL.
by Daniel Hopsicker

The “mystery” of Porter Goss’ resignation last month as CIA Director is apparently directly related to the huge seizure in Mexico several weeks earlier of over 5.5 tons of cocaine, according to government documents recently obtained by the The MadCowMorningNews.

After Goss’s surprise resignation last month he told reporters his reason for resigning was "just one of those mysteries," offering no other explanation for his sudden departure after almost two years on the job.

Goss’ resignation appears to be connected to the unprecedented withholding by the Federal Aviation Administration of the registration records for the DC9 (N900SA) which more than six weeks ago was caught carrying a cargo of five-and-a-half tons of cocaine, neatly packed into 126 identical black suitcases at a jungle airstrip in the Yucatan.

At the time of the plane’s seizure on April 11, FAA officials stated the aircraft’s title records would become available to reporters within two weeks. Six weeks later that statement, in a phrase famous from the Watergate Scandal, has been rendered “inoperative.”

CIA "front" company "Who's Who"
However, the MadCowMorningNews was successful in obtaining the FAA records last week of the confiscated plane’s sister ship, an identical twin DC9 (N120NE) owned and operated by the same partnership. Both aircraft, painted to resemble U.S. Government aircraft from the Department of Homeland Security, were parked for several years at the general aviation terminal at Clearwater St Petersburg International Airport.
The registration records reveal that the past 'owners' of "Cocaine One's" identical twin are well-known 'front' companies of America's Central Intelligence Agency.

The twin to the DC9 bursting with 5.5 tons of cocaine is a CIA plane.

The plane’s owners over the past two decades, in fact, comprise a virtual Who’s Who of aviation companies known to serve as “fronts” for the CIA, whose true identities came to light during the Iran Contra Scandal.

Moreover, the FAA’s reluctance to release the registration of “Cocaine One,” which should already be a matter of public record, is the clearest possible indication that those registration records will disclose the same thing.

5.5 tons cocaine... AND a missing $300 million?
At least three companies to which “Cocaine One’s” twin was registered have been looted, to the overall tune of almost $300 million dollars. The plane's owners have left a trail of tears for investors, engaging in massive financial fraud, of a particular kind...

Sociologists call it “state-sponsored crime.”

Innocent investors and shareholders get swindled, the bad guys get away, and newspapers go silent. There is clearly something about these particular DC9’s which give their owners a license to treat shareholders and investors like marks, and steal millions from ordinary citizens.

Working backwards from the present, the plane’s registered owner at the time it was busted was SkyWay Aircraft, the only tangible asset of SkyWay Communications Holding, a firm whose existence, as we’ve previously seen, served as nothing more than a meager excuse to run a penny stock fraud scam which bilked investors of a reported $40 million dollars... in less than three years.

SkyWay shareholders will no doubt be gratified to learn that the bankruptcy of the firm seems not to have adversely affected the firm’s top officers financially.

SkyWay’s 74 yr. old Chairman Glenn Kovar is currently building a six bedroom vacation chalet on a lake several miles north of Ducktown, Tennessee, tucked away in a picturesque rural setting boasting splendid whitewater rafting.

What luck to be in Ducktown with a fellow "snuggle person"Kovar, apparently eager to beginning to fill the six bedrooms in his new manse, has an online dating profile which reveals, among other things, that he's eager to convey that he's a romantic kind of guy, the kind who likes to take long walks on the beach at sunset.

The affect is somewhat marred by the fact he don't spell two good: “basicly i'm a romantic, touch and snuggle person,” Chairman Kovar enthuses.

There is also this nugget, which we hope a prosecuting attorney someday asks him about, preferably under oath: “i'm fortunate to be a senior advisor to the us congress and have dined with the president.”

Who might that be, Chairman Glenn? Do tell.........

Daniel Hopsicker has been tracking airplane registrations for years before 9/11, particularly in regards to the CIA and Iran -Contra and Ollie North and George H.W. Bush connected Barry Seal's days running cocaine and arms between Mena,Arkansas and Central America,etc.,while John Negroponte, who now heads W Bush's Department of Homeland Security, was the U.S.Ambassador to Honduras,and no doubt has spent much of his career covering up CIA, et.al., arms and drug running, coincidentally.

Both ex-Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton and his Republican nemesis Asa Hutchinson, who was Arkansas Attorney General at that time in the 1980's,
and was appointed by W Bush to head the DEA after their overthrow of the Taliban that sent opium and heroin production in Afghnistan soaring, could tell us much about those days if they themselves were not so connected to the events that transpired at that time under the Reagan or 'Poppy' Bush regime.

There even appears to be a history of drug running cover-ups by Mr.Negroponte :

The Atrocities of a Pale Rider-
John D. Negroponte

Celerino Castillo 3rd


From 1989 to September 1993, he was also ambassador to Mexico where he directed our U. S. intelligence services in assisting the war against the Zapatista rebels in Chiapas. Furthermore, he was there obstructing the war on [some] drugs. Seven Mexican drug agents were gunned down in an ambush by 100 members of the Mexican army on the payroll of a drug cartel; Negroponte dismissed the slaughter as "a regrettable incident." The slaughter had been videotaped by the DEA from another plane, which had also been strafed by the army unit.

Ironically enough, I was stationed in Vietnam as a combat soldier at the same time Negroponte was assigned to Vietnam. It was there I saw some of my brothers laid low from heroin overdose. It was also there, that I promised myself that if I survived that war, I would initiate my own personal war against drug trafficking. In 1979, I became one of the very few Latinos DEA agents.

From 1985 to 1991, I was assigned to Honduras, Guatemala, Belize and El Salvador. As one of two DEA agents that covered those countries, I observed that our U.S. government was complicit in drug trafficking and human rights violations. The area was rife with rebellion, gunrunning, and a perception that communism was on the move towards our back yards. One of my job descriptions was to train members of their military intelligence on the interdiction of drugs. However, most of my time was spent assisting the CIA in training the death squads. We were utilizing CIA contract agents from different parts of South America, specifically Venezuela and Argentina. In reality, Central America became one huge country, which allowed the death squads to overflow into each other. Mario Sandoval-Alarcon, best known as the godfather of the death squads and creator of the notorious death squad, "La Mano Blanca" ran all death squads. Sandoval was so loved by Ronald Reagan that he got a private invitation to, and attended, Reagan's inauguration.


And the 5.5 ton coke bust also has connections to the Huffmann Aviation terrorist flight school Venice,Florida
where Mohamed Atta found refuge while awaiting 9/11 owned by Jeb Bush's and Katherine Harris' pal, Wally Hilliard !

5.5 Coke Bust Reveals New Details Of 9.11 Attack


John Negroponte,everything W Bush claimed Saddam to be...

John Negroponte,everything W Bush claimed Saddam to be...

Obviously John Negroponte has shown himself to be very 'liberal' in his tolerance for torturing,raping and killing as well as drug trafficking when it is his side who indulge in these atrocities and excesses.And if he was unaware of the DC-9, that at one time transported Howard Dean on the U.S. Presidential campaign trail, was now painted to appear to be a Homeland Security Agency plane and carrying tons of cocaine from South America and that it had Titan Corp and Republican and Huffman Aviation( where Mohamed Atta once trained in Venice,Florida), connections, he should resign.If he did know,he should be in jail.

Negroponte should have known as well that Titan Corp, his,W Bush's,Donald Rumsfeld's, Dick Cheney's, et.al's , paid torturers in Iraq and Abu Ghraib, were connected to that plane that was busted in April with over 5.5 tons of cocaine on board and aided the Kovar, et.al.,penny stock fraud that paid for it.. And he should also have known Mohamed Atta's Lebanese accomplice in Venice,Florida,Makram Majid Chams, was no bin Laden man - unless of course bin Laden worked for Titan Corp and W Bush as well - but a Titan Corp employee ! Duh !

The SEC Chairman Christopher Cox as well as who lied about WMDS in Iraq should also take some responsibility for this DC-9 paid for by penny stock fraud he has allowed to continue under his reign of securities fraud that includes money laundering with unaudited penny stock shares even in terrorist suspect money laundering centers,Kuala Lumpur and the UAE's Dubai where W Bush swears it no longer occurs under his reign of terror ! Unfortunately Chrisotpher Cox has not yet learned to read SEC filings an excuse he and his SEC uses to blame defrauded investors for the SEC's own lax and overly 'liberal' tolerance far right stock frauds like Brent Kovar and his Skyway Communications pump and dump that Titan Corp 'management' aided and abetted ! No doubt Mr.Cox will be surprised when he finally learns to read SEC filings that Makram Chams was an employee of U.S. government torture contracter Titan Corp and NOT Osama bin Laden, unless of course Osama is employed by Titan Corp and W Bush as well !

Aircraft's Owners In 5.5 Ton Cocaine Bust Include Tom Delay Appointee,' Royal Sons'

APRIL 17 2006--Venice,FL.
by Daniel Hopsicker

One of the two owners of the DC9 (tail number N900SA) busted at an airport in Ciudad del Carmen in the state of Campeche, Mexico last week freighted 5.5 tons of cocaine had been appointed in 2003 to the Business Advisory Council of the National Republican Congressional Committee by then-Congressional Majority Leader Tom Delay, The MadCowMorningNews can exclusively report.

The plane's registered owner, 迭oyal Sons LLC,・ a Florida air charter company, was at one time housed in a hanger at the Venice Fl. Airport owned by infamous flight school Huffman Aviation.

Also of major significance is the fact that photos of the DC9, seized last Monday in Ciudad del Carmen, reveal that the plane is painted with the distinctive blue and white color color scheme of official U.S. Government planes.

Moreover, to reinforce the effect, or subterfuge, the plane carries an official-looking Seal painted on its side, which reads: SKY WAY AIRCRAFT, PROTECTION OF AMERICA'S SKIES, around an image of a federal eagle clutching the familiar olive branch in its talons. Many have been fooled into concluding that the plane belongs to the U.S. Transportation Security Administration.

This has obvious and highly serious national security implications, which go well beyond the obvious glee involved in playing political "gotcha" with people caught face-down with their noses buried, Tony Montana-style, in over five tons of cocaine.

Bush Nominates Terrorist for National Intelligence Director

by Frank Morales


Negroponte was born in London in 1939, the son of a Greek-American shipping magnate. A graduate of Yale University, raised on New York's Park Avenue, he was a "career diplomat" between 1960 and 1997, serving in eight countries in Asia, Europe and Latin America, as well as holding positions in the State Department and White House. From 1971 to 1973, Negroponte was the officer-in-charge for Vietnam at the National Security Council (NSC) under Henry Kissinger, having worked as a "political affairs officer" (read: CIA) at the US Embassy in Saigon starting as early as 1964. At that time, he shared a room with Richard Holbrooke, then an official for the Agency for International Development, later US ambassador to the UN under Clinton. Negroponte and Holbrooke both became members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the oldest and most prestigious of U.S. foreign policy think-tanks. Following Vietnam, Negroponte went on to "serve" for a number of years as an "economics officer" working out of the US Embassy in Ecuador.

Negroponte was appointed in 1981 by President Ronald Reagan to head up the U.S, Embassy in Honduras, where he stayed quite busy through 1985. From 1987-1989, he was deputy assistant to the president for national security affairs, reporting to Colin Powell. From 1989-1993, he was ambassador to Mexico. Following a stint as ambassador to the Philippines from 1993-1997, he "retired" from the diplomatic corps and took a well-paid position as vice president for global markets at McGraw-Hill, the big publishing company.

In 1981 President Reagan authorized paramilitary operations against the leftist government of Nicaragua. As ambassador to Honduras from 1981 to 1985, Negroponte played a key role in establishing that country as a base of operations for the CIA's "Contra" guerilla army then attempting to destabilize Nicaragua, with a 450-square-kilometer stretch along the border virtually turned over to the US-backed Nicaraguan rebels. He was also instrumental in the reign of terror then being overseen in Honduras by security chief Gen. Gustavo Alvarez Martinez, his good friend. Between 1980 and 1984, US military aid to Honduras jumped from $3.9 million to $77.4 million. Much of this went to facilitate the crushing of popular movements through a covert "low intensity" war.

Although the high-level planning, money and arms for this repression flowed from Washington, much of the on-the-ground logistics was run out of the Embassy in Tegucigalpa. So crammed was the tiny country with US military troops and bases at this time, that it was dubbed the "USS Honduras." The captain of this ship, Negroponte, was in charge of the US Embassy when--according to a 1995 four-part series in the Baltimore Sun--hundreds of Hondurans deemed "subversives" were kidnapped, raped, tortured and killed by Battalion 316, a secret Honduran army intelligence unit trained and supported by the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency.


In addition to internal repression in Honduras, Battalion 316 also participated in the CIA's covert war against Nicaragua. Members of the Battalion were conscripted by the CIA for such sensitive missions as training the Contra terrorists and even mining Nicaragua's harbors. Negroponte worked closely with Gen. Alvarez in overseeing the training Honduran soldiers in psychological warfare, sabotage, torture and kidnapping. Honduras was the second largest recipient of U.S. military aid in the hemisphere at this time after neighboring El Salvador. Increasing numbers of both Honduran and Salvadoran soldiers were sent to the U.S. Army's School of the Americas to receive training. In El Salvador, the death squads were headed up by Major Roberto D'Aubuisson, a 1972 graduate of the School of the Americas. General Luis Alonso Discua Elvir, one of his classmates at the US "torture academy," was a founder and commander of Battalion 316.

Through his support of Battalion 316, Negroponte is directly complicit in the murder of at least 184 Honduran civilians officially found to have been killed by the death squad by a 1994 Honduran truth commission. The unit used shock and suffocation devices in interrogations, kept prisoners naked--and, when no longer useful, killed them brutally, and buried them in unmarked clandestine graves. Women were raped, often in front of their families.

Covert operations in Central America were paid for in part through the sale of cocaine. "CIA officials," according to the New York Times (July 17, 1998), "involved in the Contra program gave relatively low priority to collecting information about the possible drug involvement of Contra rebels"--while of course giving high priority to covering it all up. Ambassador Negroponte acquiesced in shutting down the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) office in Tegucigalpa, just as Honduras was emerging as an important base for CIA-facilitated cocaine trans-shipments to the United States, with profits going to the Contras. According to a 1989 Senate Foreign Relations Committee investigative report, "elements of the Honduran military were involved in the protection of the drug traffickers."
