Just three weeks after Mohamed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi arrived on July 3, 2000 to attend the flight school at Huffman Aviation in Venice, FL., the owner of the flight school, Wallace J. Hilliard, had his Learjet surrounded by DEA agents with submachine guns on the runway of Orlando Executive Airport.
Agents found 43 pounds of heroin, arrested everyone onboard, and confiscated the plane.
Any honest prosecutor in the country would have instantly linked the huge heroin haul discovered on the flight school owner’s plane to Mohamed Atta’s arrival at his flight school, and understood that he was looking into the heart of a continuing criminal conspiracy.
As it happens, having an address at Huffman Aviation at the Venice Airport apparently is the “green light from the DEA” we were told about by airport executives in Venice, as witnessed by the recent seizure of 5.5 tons of coc aine on a DC9 owned by a company which once used Huffman’s address.
Although 5.5 tons of coc aine would seem to rate at least mild interest from American law enforcement, the Tampa DEA refuses to comment. The company’s owner appears to have no fear of being picked up anytime soon, even just for questioning.
