“Military plane believed to have exploded-mid air…” – Now, imagine the anti-aircraft missile or some similar device, in the hands of the terrorists, fired from the fields of Mississippi … – Michael Novakhov
P.S. It was a big, sturdy, well maintained military refueling plane, and the technical problems appear to be unlikely.
Do these weapons have something to do with Sater’s activities? It is the hypothetical but important question: did any of these or similar weapons make into the USA illegally? If Sater was engaged buying them “for the CIA”, Why couldn’t he or someone else buy or somehow acquire them for the terrorist activities within the USA?
“Sater is certainly experienced in promoting things, principally himself. And what he has done for his country—two big Mafia cases for the FBI, a failed effort to buy Stinger missiles in Afghanistan on the black market for the CIA, and supposedly obtaining Osama bin Laden’s cellphone number—seems to have been undertaken largely to escape punishment for what he has admitted in court having done to this country.”

SUNFLOWER COUNTY, Miss. —A military plane that crashed Monday in rural Mississippi and killed 16 servicemen is believed to have exploded in mid-air, Leflore County emergency officials said Tuesday.
The KC-130T went down about 4 p.m. Monday at the Sunflower and Leflore county line, on Moorehead and Itta Bena Roads [these are the “telling names” in this “message” – M.N.], authorities said. The plane experienced structural failure at 20,000 feet before it exploded and crashed, Leflore County officials said.
authorities said. The plane experienced structural failure at 20,000 feet before it exploded and crashed, Leflore County officials said.
Seven of the U.S. troops killed in the plane crash were special operations forces based at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Six were Marines and one was a sailor.
The Marines said Tuesday that the air tanker was based at Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh, New York, and headed to California.
One of the plane’s stops was in North Carolina, presumably to pick up the seven commandos. The plane was scheduled to drop them and their equipment off for training at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona, and fly on to a naval air field at El Centro, California. The seven commandos were from the Camp Lejeune-based 2nd Marine Raider Battalion.
The Marine Corps said personal weapons and small-arms ammunition were aboard the plane. An explosive ordinance disposal team was called to the scene as a precaution, authorities said.
“On behalf of the entire Marine Corps, I want to express my deepest condolences to the families of those killed in the aircraft mishap (Monday) afternoon in Mississippi,” Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. Robert Neller said on the U.S. Marine Corps Facebook page. “Please keep the families of our 16 fallen service members in your thoughts and prayers. Our focus remains on notifying and supporting the families while we conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of this tragedy.”
Two local retired Marines, Gresham Gregg and Arthur Ware, were at the scene Tuesday grieving for those who were killed.
“Most of these guys are probably in their 20s. Young kids, basically,” Gregg said. “It’s a terrible tragedy. It’s just horrible.”
“When you see something like this happen, it’s just hard to put it in words,” Ware said. “You can’t really express how you feel because you know they’ll never come back.”
Gregg and Ware both did tours in Iraq, but didn’t meet until they returned home to Mississippi. The two have become friends and share a common bond.
