Al Qaeda linked to rogue aviation network

“In early 2008, an official at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security sent a report to his superiors detailing what he called ‘the most significant development in the criminal exploitation of aircraft since 9/11.’

The document warned that a growing fleet of rogue jet aircraft was regularly crisscrossing the Atlantic Ocean. On one end of the air route, it said, are cocaine-producing areas in the Andes controlled by the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia. On the other are some of West Africa’s most unstable countries.

The report, a copy of which was obtained by Reuters, was ignored, and the problem has since escalated into what security officials in several countries describe as a global security threat.”
