Moussaoui Carried Phone Number For CIA-Linked MercsVia INTELWIRE.com
Zacarias Mossaoui's notebook -- presented as an exhibit at his recently concluded trial -- contained a phone number for Blackwater USA, the private security contractor that last year provided a golden parachute for pre-9/11 CIA Counterterrorism Director Cofer Black.
The company has run security/paramilitary operations for the U.S. government in such locations as Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq.
The company became embroiled in controversy in Iraq, where four of its contractors met with a gory death in Fallujah around the same time that independent contractor Nick Berg met with a similarly gruesome fate. Adding to the strange congruences around Moussaoui, it has been reported that Berg and Moussaoui met at least once in Norman, Oklahoma.
The discovery may best be taken with \the proverbial grain of salt, and a large one at that. The phone number is publicly available and connects to a Blackwater training center in North Carolina. Moussaoui was researching physical and combat training options while he was in the United States.
The simplest and most obvious explanation is quite probably the correct one, although the first glimpse of the number nestled among Moussaoui's handwritten notes inspires a not-entirely unreasonable jaw-dropping reaction.
