Four times a week, pilots working for a North Las Vegas private airline charter company quietly fly to Baghdad and Kabul. The company, Vision Airlines, is just another U.S. government contractor doing furtive work in Afghanistan and Iraq. But a lawsuit filed against the company in federal court last week reveals something of the otherwise vast and veiled business. Reading the case against Vision Airlines is like squinting through a keyhole to size up the contents of a hangar.





Vision Air is being sued by employees who say the company withheld millions in government hazard pay they earned for flying into war zones. At its heart, this lawsuit is a payroll dispute. But sealing the case, according to Vision attorney Harold Gewerter, is matter of protecting “confidential and classified information, wholly irrelevant to the ultimate claims of the plaintiff.”


How is it that private companies, and the government are afforded exponentially greater privacy than citizens. They don't even need an excuse, they just claim privilege.

It would be interesting to find out who and/or what was being flown in and out of Baghdad and Kabul that requires such secrecy. The term “diplomatic and other personnel” is ambiguous at best.

I apologise for being stupid, i meant to edit my post replied to it instead. If there is any way to merge the two posts into one that would be great.

Star and flag !!!

This is definitely a CIA front... How embarrassing to them to have this issue getting attention.

And it’s this kind of flight that has led some to speculate that Vision is involved in a CIA “extraordinary rendition” program — transferring suspected terrorists around the planet for reasons unclear. Critics will tell you it’s to unlawfully detain and torture prisoners in secret detention sites. U.S. government officials will tell you that no such thing happens at all.


Honestly this part kinda made me laugh... Why would that part about secret detention facilities even be thrown in there? That didn't even come to mind for me, until reading that part. Especially since they did just pass the bill allowing these military detention facilities...

It seems lately that businesses and people are letting their greed and perceived immunity from the law come back to bite them. I don't understand why they wouldn't just pay their employees the money they had promised. Wall street needs their bonuses, but don't pay those who are doing dangerous dirty work for good old uncle scam.
