It has been revealed by a report from the human rights watchdog Reprieve that a Gulfstream jet airplane, belonging to Philip Morse, the current owner of FC Liverpool, has been usef for at least two CIA special secret flights, that also landed in Romania. On March the 24th and on April the 12th, 2004, the plane flew from Guantanamo to Morocco, via Romania, carrying aboard several Al Qaida agents, allegedly named Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri, Abu Zubaydah, Ramzi bin al-Shibh and Mustafa al-Hawsawi.

As Mail on Sunday also reports, the plane was hired from 2002 to 2005 by the Central Intelligence Agency. Another report, by the European Parliament, links the plane to the kidnapping of preacher Abu Omar, in 2003. The plane was reported to have landed on Kabul, Baku, Tripoli and Rabat and, since December 2004, it is also alleged that is has conducted at least 51 flights for the CIA.
