CIA rendition aircraft identified flying "Australian Taliban"

On May 22, WMR reported on the Gulfstream Aerospace G550 (Tail Number N90AM) that flew "Australian Taliban" David Hicks to Australia from incarceration in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The Gulfstream's travel itinerary over the past 7 years closely matches those of other CIA rendition aircraft.

A Securities and Exchange Commission EDGAR database search reveals that the actual owner of N90AM is ProFlite LLC, an air charter company that is a Delaware limited liability company. ProFlite's principal place of business is 233 Industrial Avenue, Teterboro, New Jersey, the same address listed in FAA records for Time Works LLC. ProFlite's SEC filings also reveal that N90AM has been leased to Monster Worldwide, Inc., a Delaware corporation having its principal place of business at 622 Third Avenue, New York, New York, 10017.

A search of the New Jersey State Business Gateway Services reveals that Time Works LLC is a Foreign Limited Liability Corporation whose home jurisdiction is Delaware. Time Works' corporation filing papers were submitted on December 21, 2000 and its last annual report was filed on December 16, 2005. The corporation's status is "Active." There are two other entities listed in New Jersey's business registration database but they are spelled "Timeworks."

Time Works LLC's President is listed as Christopher Cummings of 222 N.E. Monroe Street, 8th Floor, Peoria, Illinois 61602. Listed under Officers/Directors/Members is Jeffrey Corron of the same Peoria address. Cummings and Corron are also listed as officers of the Marquette Group, a marketing group with offices at 222 N.E. Monroe Street, 8th Floor, Peoria, IL 61602.

Corron is listed as a contributor to the Bush-Cheney 2004 primary campaign under CFO, "Market Group," 222 N.E. Monroe St., Peoria, IL 61602.

The Yellow Pages Association Industry Guide describes the Marquette Group as specializing "in generating qualified, measurable leads on a local level by promoting national brands through print and online Yellow Pages, interactive advertising and direct marketing."
