More on the four TONS of cocaine aboard the Gulfstream jet that crashed in the Yucatan

i posted on this story back at the end of last month... i now see that madcow has been busy running down more of the ugly details...
A pilot accused of owning the Gulfstream business jet (N987SA) which broke in two and crash-landed in the Mexican Yucatan carrying nearly 4 tons of cocaine has pointed a finger at a notorious convicted drug smuggler as the true owner of the drug-running airplane, the MadCowMorningNews can report exclusively.

Don Whittington, whose WORLD JET INC at the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport was widely reported to have been deeply involved in CIA rendition flights, provided $2 million in cash to purchase the Gulfstream business jet, according to Greg Smith, one of two pilots in Fort Lauderdale Florida who have been accused of owning the plane.


Many of the Learjets associated with CIA renditions came from the World Jet, Inc (including N-numbers N229WJ, N500ND, N252WJ), all of which have been tracked making numerous stops at Guantanamo.

check out the teaser for the coming attractions...
