- The Frequency Monitoring Centre in the Netherlands is
now reporting on yet another CIA prisoner aircraft transiting Schipol East
Airport in Amsterdam. The plane departed Schipol on November 18, 2005 enroute
to Reykjavik, Iceland. The plane, a DeHavilland Dash 8-315B (registration
N505LL) flew to Amsterdam from Sabiha Gökçen Airport in Istanbul,
Turkey on November 16, 2005. The plane is registered to Path Corporation,
a CIA front company. (Path owns three other aircraft: N120JM (Fairchild
SA227-AT), N212CP (Cessna/208B), and N221SG (Gates Learjet Corp 35A). N505LL
was photographed at Chandler Airport in Phoenix on May 18, 2005 and has
been seen in Afghanistan on CIA covert missions. N505LL also overflew Danish
territories of the Faroe Islands and Greenland and may have landed at Thule
Air Base in Greenland.
- A British intelligence source postulated that the CIA
planes landed with their Arab prisoners in cold climates as a form of torture
itself. "The prisoners, used to the high temperatures of the Middle
East would have found the sudden blast of cold air intimidating and debilitating,
and, if left overnight in such temperatures, would have constituted a form
of torture," said the source.
