"SNIP.....

An air freight company in Greensboro, North Carolina has grounded flights to Venezuela amid suspicions its plane was being used to send arms to rebels in that country.

McClatchy has reported on a series of suspicious flights between the U.S., Venezuela and Colombia by one particular plane, and last week Venezuela’s government seized a jet it said had sent assault weapons to the troubled nation.

The seizure was made at an airport in Valencia, Venezuela’s third-biggest city, with the government saying that the arms were to be used in “terrorist actions.”

.....

McClatchy has found no concrete links between the aviation firm and the U.S. government, but reports that Adolfo Moreno, the firm’s chairman is connected to Gemini Air Cargo. This firm was linked to controversial prisoner transfers, known as extraordinary renditions, under George W. Bush, Barack Obama’s predecessor.

11. Hell no, I'm not happy.

Anybody watching the activities of Oliver North these days ?

I would put NOTHING past Abrams. Appointing him was a HUGE error in judgement.

14. Because it is a right wing newspaper that has been run without profit

for half of its' life to try and turn Canadians against liberalism. I think a US hedge fund owns at least part of it now. I posted it because they had the story on an amalgamation site.

15. They can use his name in any article.

Hitler, no relative to Obama, started WWII.

The Japanese attacked Obama's claimed birth state which led to our declaring war.

I see. It's easy.

16. You are quick you are. I will try to keep an eye on them and their use

of Obama's name. Though I never read them almost.
