First; the reported statement by Zuwena Robinas of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada;
"The Government of canada has no information to substantiate allegations about links between those flights and the CIA."
Second; Many of the so-called rendition flights have been flagged by recreational "tail-spotters who have turned their hobby of identifying aircraft
tail numbers into a valuable Internet data source.
"It's careless tradecraft", says John Pike, an expert on U.S. intelligence matters at GlobalSecurity.org.
"they (the CIA) have allowed the tail-spotters into the game and they have not come to grips with the advent of the Internet, and not come to grips
with the massive parallel processing which is underway with all those tail spotters."
Some tail numbers of planes landing in Canada...
N196D- a 40 seat turboprop registered to Devon of Lexington NC
N312ME- A Beech aircraft registered to Aviation Specialties of Washington DC
N4557C- Lockheed multi-engine registered to Rapid Air Transport of Beltsville, Md
N505LL- DeHaviland registered to Path Corp of Rehoboth Beach, Del.
N397P- Gulfstream V registered to Bayard Marketing, Portland Oregon
This is a small part of the information which Tim Harper wrote in the Toronto Sun yesterday.
I'm wondering how Condi Rice will adress the European concerns about these flights today. Everything has great deniability, IMO, but with Sweden,
Iceland, Denmark,Spain, Austria, Germany, Cyprus, Macedonia, Malta and Greece (among other countries) reporting overflights and landings, I'm sure
questions will be asked. Iceland reports 67 such landings on it's soil alone.
