DEA Case Threatens to Expose US Government-Sanctioned Drug-Running

We lost the War on Drugs when Reagan was President.  Thats when the CIA first got involved in the drug smuggling business to fight communism in Central America.  Yet the federal government continues to waste billions of dollars pretending to fight the war on drugs.  Bill Conroy at the Narcosphere gives us an update on government sanctioned drug running:

Federal agents this past November raided the offices of an aircraft brokerage and leasing company called World Jet Inc., based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The raid, spear headed by the US Drug Enforcement Administration, was launched on the heels of a DEA affidavit for a search warrant, which was filed in late October last year in federal court in Colorado as part of a case that is now sealed. The search-warrant affidavit was made available on the Internet after being obtained by a reporter for the Durango Heraldnewspaper.

The affidavit outlines allegations against several individuals accused by the DEA of participating in a narco-trafficking conspiracy. But that is not the big story here.

Instead, the real news is buried deep in the DEA court pleadings and confirms the existence of a US undercover operation that Narco News reported previously had allowed tons of cocaine to be flown from Latin America into the states absent proper controls or the knowledge of the affected Latin American nations.

The DEA affidavit focuses on the owner of World Jet, Don Whittington, and his brother, Bill — both of whom earned modest infamy as race-car drivers who were convicted and served time in prison for participating in a marijuana-smuggling conspiracy in the 1980s.

Although the investigation into the Whittingtons and World Jet may seem like a typical drug-war saga, there is a twist in this case, related to the sale of a Gulfstream II corporate jet, that appears to put the DEA in the position of investigating one or more of its sister federal agencies.

Don Whittington’s World Jet brokered the Gulfstream II’s sale to a company called Donna Blue Aircraft Inc., according to the DEA affidavit.

The DEA affidavit indicates that Donna Blue was, in fact, a front company for an ICE undercover operation dubbed “Mayan Jaguar.” Donna Blue subsequently sold the Gulfstream II jet to a Florida duo — Clyde OConnor and Gregory Smith, who has a history of involvement in US government operations.

About a week later, on Sept. 24, 2007, the Gulfstream jet crashed in Mexico’s Yucatan with a payload of some 4 tons of cocaine onboard. Media reports at the time and European investigators, it turns out, have linked the Gulfstream II’s tail number, N987SA, to past CIA flights to Guantanamo Bay.

Narco News reported on the Gulfstream II jet crash and its aftermath extensively and has uncovered documents and sources indicating that Gregory Smith was, in fact, a contract pilot who did work for the US government, including US Customs (later rolled into ICE, which is part of Homeland Security), DEA, FBI and likely CIA.

We Have Just Begun to Fight

Yesterday we had the pleasure of having lunch with many U.S. Customs Office of Investigations friends and former co-workers.  We had the best turnout ever at this annual event.  I am pleased to report that there are still some federal employees who take their oath to support and defend the Constitution seriously.

Its been over 25 years since many of us at yesterdays gathering first met. Most of us transferred from many different agencies to mother Customs in 1987. We were all happy to see former Dallas Special Agent in Charge Wayne Frandsend yesterday.   Wayne was one of the few agents who spend his entire career with Customs, suviving the DEA purge in 1973.  Hes a patriot who retired to his home state of Utah.  Recently Wayne set Bill OReilly straight on the Second Amendment in an email, which OReilly read on the air.

Congratulations to three more of my former colleagues who will be retiring at the end of the month.  Working as a Customs special agent was the second bet job I ever had.  Retirement is by far the best!

This has been a very active week due to Bob Costas introducing the gun ban agenda which will be a primary theme in Obamas second term . Of course, his lecture at half time on Sunday Night Football was sanctioned at the highest levels of the White House, just like Operation Gun Runner (aka Fast and Furious).  Gun Control will be the Obamacare of the second term.  NBC is the primary propaganda outlet for the current White House, though CBS, ABC, CNN and others are constantly battling to replace them as the voice of liberal fascism in America.

Bonzer Wolf Today™ added a significant number of first time readers and Twitter followers this week.  Both our First and Second Amendment civil rights are under attack from the Progressive Party, formerly known as the Democratic Party.  The liberal fascists think the fight is over.  Its just getting started.  We are behind in the battle.  But this is a war that we simply can not and will not lose. 

Here is one of the many emails I received this week:

I have about half a dozen core issues I am concerned about as a constitutional conservative, and gun control is at the top of my list. I know I am preaching to the choir.

I know all the historical perspectives. From the key part of the 2nd Amendment .The right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed to the Militia Acts of the 1890`s that redefined what a Militia (National Guard) is, to the NFA 1934 banning Machine Guns to the GCA 1968 which banned Mail Order sales of Firearms. Never Mind the Brady Bill, and Assault Weapons Ban.

We have let the progressive left define the argument over the last 30 years. From code phrases (dog-whistle) like reasonable and common sense gun control .We know these phrases are the hallmark of the Gun-Ban Lobby, An assault weapon is  now defined as any semi-automatic rifle that has a magazine of more than 10 rounds and looks like a true fully automatic assault weapon. If it has a Hi-Cap Mag, Pistol Grip and a flash-hider/muzzle brake it is an assault weapon.  

Some of the moderate left argues that they dont want to keep people from so-called legitimate ownership of firearms for such purposes as hunting, target pracice, and self protection in their own homes. The founding fathers made no mention of hunting, or target practice. Hunting was indeed a way of life and substinence for the majority of Americans in 1787. They needed no constitutional protection to own firearms to live and eat. We constitutionalists argue that the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms. was based on the right to resist an oppressive government, than it was for hunting, which was a fact of life for the majority of Americans in 1787. Target practice only involved learning how to shoot at the time. Home protection was a given.

The far left progressive gun-ban lobby uses these false arguments to further their goal to abolish civilian gun possession. They use like minded useful idiots in the left dominated Main Stream Media to use any tragedy to exploit this nonsense to the already indoctrinated unwashed masses. Our public school teachers, having already been trained by far left professors, have been teaching this far left anti American, anti Constitutional propaganda to our children for 30 years.

I couldnt have said it better.  This is the core issue that we must deal with if we are to remain a free people.  Make no doubt about it.  They are coming for our guns and our freedom. 

”To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…” ~Richard Henry Lee
