Support Growing For Investigation In Aero Contractors

Support is growing among human rights groups calling for a state investigation into Aero Contractors based at the Johnston County Airport in Smithfield . The company has been accused of transporting terrorist suspects for the CIA to countries that allow torture during interrogations. Two dozen state lawmakers have joined the groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union, who has asked Gov. Mike Easley to initiate an investigation. Aero Contractors also rents a hangar at the Global TransPark in Kinston for a Boeing Business Jet, which was too heavy to fly out of the Smithfield airport. However, there are no records of Aero Contractors making any payments to the state for the hangar they lease for the jet. So far, Gov. Easley and other state leaders have rejected requests for an investigation into Aero Contractors actions.

    This is rediculous. Even if the state investigated Aero Contractors and found that they did provide international flights to support our nations human intelligence efforts so what? If they are doing a good job at that then God Bless them. Are they against all airlines that move prisoners against their will? They need to thank all those who work every day to thwart the efforts of the terrorist who want to kill each of us just because we are American. So far they have been successful Americans are able to keep the same amazingly good lifestyle despite the efforts of all those against us.
