“The FBI took all our files, everything. They loaded the files right outside this window‘into two Ryder trucks, then drove them onto a C-130 military cargo plane at the Sarasota airport, which took off for Washington with Jeb Bush aboard” – Lt. Mike Treanor, Venice Police Department
The CIA faked airplane training in Venice, FL for the named hijackers to cover for the real hijackers who were hired by the CIA and trained on real airliners in the Middle East. Daniel Hopsicker has researched the CIA connection to the Venice flight school. He documents in this article how the government came in and removed all the police records about the flight school and its owner and flew them out of Florida on a military C-130. Gov. Jeb Bush was personally on that flight and knew about this hiding of the compromising files.
On the campaign trail in New Hampshire two weeks ago, Jeb Bush was asked a question for which he clearly wasn’t prepared, which hearkened back to Bush’s time as Florida Governor.
Newly-minted radio talk show host Mike Jackman asked this probing question: “According to Sergeant Marty (Mike) Treanor and other law enforcement officials in Sarasota Florida, the files pertaining to 9/11 hijacker pilots Marwan Al-Shehhi and Mohamed Atta from Huffman Aviation Flight School in Venice Florida were loaded onto two Ryder trucks and driven onto a C-130 cargo plane which left Sarasota the day after 9/11. “Is it true that you were onboard the C-130? And, if so, can you tell us what became of the files?”
According to those who were there, a certain amount of discomfort ensued. Bush, who has appeared as limp as overcooked spaghetti on the campaign trail, visibly stiffened. “No. Not true,” he replied. Then, as an aside to those sitting in the front row of his town hall meeting, he said, “How weird.” Bush began taking another question, then stopped. His voice rising slightly to convey indignation, he said, “I was in the Emergency Operations Center trying to make sure the state of Florida was safe…That’s what I did.”
Jackman’s question refers to evidence uncovered during my investigation into the activities of the 9/11 hijackers in Venice. And somewhere in there Jackman had also referenced Wally Hilliard and Rudi Dekkers, [a Dutch foreign national] the principals in Hoffman Aviation. When he did, one observer noted, Bush seemed to freeze slightly.
Perhaps that has something to do with the little-known fact that a Learjet belonging to Hilliard, who owned the Venice flight school that trained both pilots who flew planes into the World Trade Center Towers, had been caught carrying 43 pounds of heroin by DEA agents in July of 2000. Just weeks earlier, Jeb Bush’s Secretary of State, the infamous Katherine Harris, had heaped praise on Hilliard’s start-up commuter airline, Florida Air.
Lt. Mike (Marty) Treanor from the Venice Police Department… was the first person to tell me of Jeb Bush’s flight to Washington with the files from Huffman Aviation and the Venice Police Department. But not the last.
Treanor wasn’t a flake, or a name I made up. He’d been quoted in national news reports right after 9/11… Moreover, he wasn’t afraid of speaking his mind. He was openly critical of a Venice Chief of Police— even filing a complaint against him for improperly handling a criminal investigation—for more than a year before the Chief was forced out. And that’s why I think, when I spoke with him, in 2002, he told the truth. Because that’s who he was. He was an honest local cop.
Treanor said he couldn’t tell us if Dekkers [owner of Huffman Aviation who had a CIA background] had been in any trouble in Venice. All of his files were gone. I asked, “Gone?” Gone and never to return. “The FBI took all our files, everything. They loaded the files right outside this window,” Treanor said, indicating the parking lot outside the station, ‘into two Ryder trucks, then drove them onto a C-130 military cargo plane at the Sarasota airport, which took off for Washington with Jeb Bush aboard”
Much later, I received confirmation that Jeb Bush was aboard the C-130 that took off from Sarasota Airport. It came from the man who had been in charge of the flight crew [a pilot]… But when this man asked to remain anonymous, I completely understood… the man who confirmed that Jeb Bush was aboard the C-130 was, I knew for a fact, also a CIA pilot, with experience flying Lockheed C-5 Galaxy military cargo planes, among the largest military aircraft in the world.
In addition to confirming Jeb Bush’s presence on the plane, he had one other piece of startling, and dispiriting, news. Everyone I’d spoken to with knowledge of the flight had assumed the files from Huffman Aviation, and the criminal records of the Venice Police Department, were being flown to FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The FBI never got them. The files never got there. They were diverted to McLean Virginia… home of the CIA. Repeated phone calls to the Venice Police Department on whether the files were ever returned received no response. It doesn’t take a psychic to figure out that means they were never returned. Somebody should ask Jeb Bush what he knows about that.
That wouldn’t do any good, but at least my readers know of Bush’s involvement in the 9/11 coverup, along with his brother the president. Of course, it was VP Cheney who was managing the attack from the White House situation room. Bush, the puppet president, was only playing his role at the elementary school that day.
