It seems that Joint Special Operations Command, a US anti terrorist organization that works closely with the CIA and military Special Forces, has been
whisking away suspected terrorists for interrogation/torture. It is suspected that shortly after 9-11 the JSOC, operating under a false Portland based
company named Bayard Foreign Marketing LLC, had begun to take suspected terrorist operatives into custody and flown to different parts of the world
The first question is: Where is Leonard T. Bayard? The next question is: Who is Leonard T. Bayard? But the most important question may be: Does
Leonard T. Bayard even exist? The questions arise because the signature of a Leonard Thomas Bayard appears on the annual report of a Portland-based
company, Bayard Foreign Marketing LLC, that was filed in August with the Oregon secretary of state.
According to federal records, Bayard Foreign Marketing is the newest owner of a U.S.-registered Gulfstream V executive jet reportedly used since Sept.
11, 2001, to transport suspected Al Qaeda operatives to countries such as Egypt and Syria, where some of them claim to have later been tortured.
The Central Intelligence Agency (news - web sites) has declined to discuss the plane. But one retired CIA (news - web sites) officer said that he
understood the Gulfstream had been operated by the Joint Special Operations Command, an interagency unit that organizes counterterrorist operations in
conjunction with the CIA and military special forces.

In my opinion, this is a scary scenario, for one can only imagine where this could lead. One day you’re voicing your concerns, in a chat room, about
your countries leaders and the next minute you’re on a plane to no where-a plane where all of your rights no longer exist. I know that this statement
is going a little overboard at this present time but things could spiral downward rather quickly if not kept in check. It’s important to remember that
it’s very easy to give your rights away but it’s hard as hell to get them back once they are gone.
