The coincidence theorists are going to have a field day with this one.

Big Safari, the Kennedy Assassination, & the war for control of the Venice Airport

.... Sept 08, 2009
by Daniel Hopsicker

A fierce war being waged for control of the Venice Municipal Airport has led to the discovery of covert CIA and military operations, dating back to at least 1959, which go well beyond what was previously known to have taken place there.

Operations at the Venice Airport have involved individuals whose names figure prominently in the Kennedy Assassination, for example Texas oilman General D. H. (Harry) Byrd, owner of a defense contractor which in the late 50's and early 60's built and launched Regulus II cruise missiles from the beach directly in front of the Venice Airport in a program run out of at Eglin AFB in Floridas panhandle.


General Byrd, of course, was the owner of the Texas School Book Depository in Dallas, where the Warren Commission alleged Lee Harvey Oswald fired the shots which killed President John F. Kennedy.

Byrd also ran the Texas and Louisiana Civil Air Patrol, at the same time cadets Barry Seal and Lee Harvey Oswald were meeting Kennedy assassination conspirator Capt. David Ferrie at a two-week summer camp of the Louisiana Civil Air Patrol at Barksdale Air Force Base in July of 1955.


The Venice Airport, of course, first became infamous after 9/11 for having played host to three of the four terrorist pilots involved in the attack.

The Airports reputation was further tarnished with the subsequent discoveryfirst reported exclusively herethat the owner of Huffman Aviation, Wallace J. Hilliard, was implicated in international heroin trafficking, and had had his Lear jet permanently seized by the DEA after it was caught carrying 43 lbs. of heroin in Orlando on July 25, 2000.

That date was less than three weeks after Mohamed Atta arrivedfrom Afghanistan, according to Rudi Dekkers, speaking with reporters on Sept. 12a country which, even then, was responsible for most of the worlds herointo attend his Venice FL flight school.

1. This part could prove interesting
"50 years of covert ops. No film at eleven."

More details of the new revelations will be disclosed over the next several days, and placed in context of their importance in any future 9/11 investigation.

Like many, I have heard whispers of the five left in Cuba to rot in prison. Most of what I heard was through innuendo -the storyline was very scrabbled, so I had to put the pieces together. Hats off to Hopsicker for digging this up, this is another piece of the puzzle many have been trying to piece together.
