13. Celerino Castillo was a hero
Celerino was a real patriot :patriot: and good cop. He tried everything he could to stop the cocaine and he wasn't allowed to do anything about it and then he made a draft indictment against George sr. and Executive Intelligence Review may not be the nicest group, they made sure it was perfect document. Like so many other things it wasn't meant to be, however the document still exists and you can check all the facts on there is lots of detailed information of the web about it.

This is an oldie. By Ruppert when he was writing the good stuff:

Why Does George W. Bush Fly in Drug Smuggler Barry Seal's Airplane?
Daniel Hopsicker and Michael C. Ruppert

Any story, originally published in From The Wilderness, more than thirty days old may be reprinted in its entirety, non-commercially, if, and only if, the author's name remains attached and the following statement appears:

"Reprinted with permission, Michael C. Ruppert and From The Wilderness Publications,, P.O. Box 6061-350, Sherman Oaks, CA, 91413. 818-788-8791. FTW is published monthly, annual subscriptions are $50 per year."

N6308F. Barry Seal's favorite plane. Later used by George W. Bush

It has all the makings of a major box office thriller: Texas Governor and Republican Presidential contender George W. Bush and his brother Jeb, allegedly caught on videotape in 1985 picking up kilos of cocaine at a Florida airport in a DEA sting set up by Barry Seal.

An ensuing murderous cover-up featuring Seal's public assassination less than a year later by a hit team - the members of which, when caught, reveal to their attorneys during trial that their actions were being directed by then, National Security Council (NSC) staffer - Lt. Colonel Oliver North

And a private turboprop King Air 200 supposedly caught on tape in the sting with FAA ownership records leading directly to the CIA and some of the perpetrators of the most notorious (and never punished) major financial frauds of the '80s. Greek shippers paying bribes to obtain loans from American companies that would never be repaid. An American executive snatching the charred remains of a $10,000 payoff check from an ashtray in an Athens restaurant - Swiss police finding bank accounts used for kickbacks and bribes

Add to this mix the now irrefutable proof, some of it from the CIA itself, that then Vice President George H.W. Bush was a decision maker in illegal Contra support operations connected to the "unusual" acquisition of aircraft and that his staff participated in key financial, operational and political decisions.

All these events lead inexorably to one unanswered question: How did this one plane go from being controlled by Barry Seal, the biggest drug smuggler in American history, to becoming, according to state officials, a favored airplane of Texas Governor George W. Bush?


Everybody Will Be There.
The "boys" were getting ready to go to war in the Spring of 1982:

-- CIA agent Dewey Clarridge put a proposition to Contra leader Eden Pastora. "He would become the star of the second revolution as he had been the star of the first,"

-- John Hull, whom Congressional sources said worked for the CIA since at least the early 1970s, rented a Contra safe house in San Jose, Coast Rica at CIA request.

-- Retired Air Force Major General Richard Secord began managing an operation in which Israel shipped weapons captured in Lebanon to a CIA arms depot in San Antonio, Texas, for re-shipment to the Contras.

-- Felix Rodriguez drew on his Vietnam experience and wrote a five-page proposal for the creation of an elite mobile strike force, called the Tactical Task Force (TTF), that would "be ideal for the pacification efforts in El Salvador and Guatemala."

-- And at this exact same time, in the Spring of 1982, Barry Seal began flying private planes into a then-obscure airport in the secluded mountains of western Arkansas known as Mena. He moved his base of operations from Louisiana to hook up with the CIA, which was anxious to use Seal's fleet of planes to ferry both legal and illegal supplies to Contra camps in Honduras and Costa Rica.


The convoluted, pretzel-like paper history of the airplane that once belonged to Barry Seal and is today used by Texas Governor George W. Bush begins when the title to the brand new aircraft was first recorded by Portland, Oregon dealer Flightcraft, Inc.


Notice that Louisiana was previously used by the ex-Cubans during the Bay of Pigs, however J. Edgar Hoover messed that up. The Barry Seal affair meant that Mena was no longer suitable either, so maybe Venice is/was the replacement. Guess they need a new place now as well.

For those who forgot where Barry Seal came from:

This photograph was taken in a nightclub in Mexico City on 22nd January, 1963. It is believed that the men in the photograph are all members of Operation 40. Closest to the camera on the left is Felix Rodriguez. Next to him is Porter Goss and Barry Seal. Others in the picture are Alberto 'Loco' Blanco (3rd right) and Jorgo Robreno (4th right). The guy hiding his face is Tosh Plumlee according to John Simkin and Octafish. (Hopsicker probably made a wrong identification).

Parts of the team was originally assembled for the Cuban operations, however lots of members were later used in a huge number of operations. The group was presided over by Richard Nixon. George H.W. Bush was connected to the group as well according to James Files ( )
