More than 70 CIA-linked landings in Canada: memos

Newly declassified memos show the number of Canadian landings by planes tied to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency far exceeds previously known figures.

...One note, stamped secret, says 20 planes with alleged CIA ties have made 74 flights to Canada since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Amnesty International, it says, can't get an answer to their question of whether prisoners, on their way to be tortured, were on these flights.

One recent flight, an 11-seat Beech turboprop with tail number N157A, set out for Keflavik, Iceland, on Feb. 12 from Goose Bay, N.L., where it had arrived the previous day from Montreal.
The U.S. military maintains an air station in Keflavik that serves as a refuelling point for Europe-bound aircraft.

Montreal (my hometown) - Feb. 11 (last week) - all way too close for comfort.
