THE CIA ONCE SHOT DOWN A BI-PLANE WITH AN AK-47 FROM A HELICOPTER

In 2007 the CIA was given an oil painting commemorating one of the strangest air combat missions in the agency’s history.

The CIA described the event on their website,

Known as “Site 85,” the US radar facility perched atop a 5,800-foot mountain in northeast Laos—less than 150 miles from Hanoi—was providing critical and otherwise unavailable all-weather guidance to American F-105 fighter-bombers flying strike missions against Communist supply depots, airfields, and railroad yards in North Vietnam. CIA proprietary Air America provided critical air support to the US Air Force technicians (working under civilian cover), several CIA case officers, and the CIA-directed Hmong and Thai security forces at the isolated site.

Recognizing the threat posed by this facility, the People’s Army of Vietnam vowed to destroy it. On 12 January 1968, four North Vietnamese AN-2 Colt biplanes—painted dark green and modified to drop “bombs” improvised from 122-mm mortars and 57-mm rockets—headed for Site 85.

At about 1:30 pm, as they approached their target, the four Colts split into two equal formations—one pair began low-level bombing and strafing passes while the other pair circled nearby. Coincidently, Air America pilot Ted Moore was flying an ammunition-supply run to the site in his unarmed UH-1D “Huey” helicopter when he saw the biplanes attacking. Moore and his flight mechanic Glenn Woods took chase of the first Colt. Woods pulled out his AK-47 rifle and began firing at the lumbering biplane. The pursuit was relentless, continuing for more than 20 minutes until the second Colt (hit by ground fire) joined the first in an attempt to escape back into North Vietnam. Both attacking Colts suffered severe bullet damage and crashed before reaching the border. Fearing a similar fate, the two unengaged Colts retreated unharmed.

The painting captures one North Vietnamese Colt fleeing and the other being pursued by the Air America Huey piloted by Moore as mechanic Woods fires his AK-47 at the cockpit. This daring action by Moore and Woods gained them—and Air America—the distinction of having shot down an enemy fixed-wing aircraft from a helicopter—a singular aerial victory in the entire history of the Vietnam War.

Two months later in a night raid, North Vietnamese commandos overran Site 85 in the deadliest single ground loss of US Air Force personnel during the Vietnam War. A year later, Glenn Woods was killed in action in Laos.

On 27 July 2007, CIA officially received the painting in an event attended by members of the Air America Board; pilot Ted Moore; Sawang Reed, the wife of flight mechanic Glenn Woods; CIA paramilitary legend Bill Lair; and the donors of the painting, former Air America officers Marius Burke and Boyd D. Mesecher.

DRUNK MAN STEALS TANK, CRASHES INTO SUPERMARKET FOR MORE WINE

A wino from Murmansk was so desperate for another drink that he stole a Soviet-era M-1970 multi-purpose amphibious auxiliary armored track vehicle and drove it through the glass window of his local supermarket.

Before reaching the supermarket, the drunk man crashed into an unattended Daewoo parked nearby.

After shattering the windows, the man climbed out of the armored vehicle and walked into the store. The Daily Mail reports he stole a bottle of red wine from Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula annexed by Vladimir Putin in 2014.

He fled the scene on foot, but was quickly apprehended by police. The M-1970 was later returned to the local military training depot.

Footage of the tank’s removal was recorded and shared online yesterday along with photographs from the scene.

FATHER WHO BEAT TO DEATH MAN HE CAUGHT RAPING HIS FIVE-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER WILL NOT FACE CHARGES BECAUSE OF TEXAS STATE LAWS ON DEADLY FORCE

A Texas father who discovered a man raping his five-year-old daughter and beat him to death with his bare hands will not be charged with homicide under state law.

A Lavaca County grand jury decided not to press charges against the 23-year-old father in the June 9th death of Jesus Mora Flores, 47, who was killed inside a remote shack after he was caught molesting the young girl.

Under Texas state law, deadly force is authorized and indeed, justified in order to stop an aggravated sexual assault and coupled with the fact that the harrowing 911 calls made by the father back claims he even tried to save the pedophile’s life led to the grand jury’s decision.

Lavaca County sheriff’s deputies said that the father, whose name has not been released to protect the little girl’s identity, sent her and her brother to feed the family’s chickens.

The boy rushed back to tell his dad that someone had grabbed his sister and taken her to a small secluded shack and the father rushed towards his daughter’s screams and arrived to find them both with their underwear off.

No Charges: 25th Judicial District Attorney Heather McMinn, left, and Lavaca County Sheriff Mica Harmon appear at a news conference in Halletsville, Texas on Tuesday, June 19, 2012 in the aftermath of the killing

Flying into a rage, the father beat Flores unconscious, but attempted to call 911 for the rapist after he had made sure his daughter was safe.

Sheriff Micah Harmon had said in June that he was not willing to press charges against the father, rather the case would be presented to a grand jury.

At the time, Harmon said that the man was ‘very remorseful’ and didn’t know at the time he had killed Flores.

‘You have a right to defend your daughter,’ Harmon told CNN at the time. ‘The girl’s father acted in defense of his third person. Once the investigation is completed we will submit it to the district attorney who then submits it to the grand jury, who will decide if they will indict him.’

Indeed, the father is heard profanely screaming at a dispatcher who couldn’t locate the property.

Becoming increasingly frazzled, the father at one point tells the dispatcher he’s going to put the man in his truck and drive him to a hospital before sheriff’s deputies finally arrive.

V’Anne Huser, the father’s attorney, sternly told reporters several times during a news conference at the Lavaca County courthouse that neither the father nor the family will ever give interviews.

‘He’s a peaceable soul,’ Huser said. ‘He had no intention to kill anybody that day.’

The attack happened on the family’s ranch off a quiet, two-lane county road between the farming towns of Shiner and Yoakum.

Authorities say a witness saw Flores ‘forcibly carrying’ the girl into a secluded area and then scrambled to find the father. Running toward his daughter’s screams, investigators said, the father pulled Flores off his child and ‘inflicted several blows to the man’s head and neck area.’

Emergency crews found Flores’ pants and underwear pulled down on his lifeless body by the time they responded to the 911 call.

The girl was taken to a hospital and examined, and authorities say forensic evidence and witness accounts corroborated the father’s story that his daughter was being sexually molested.

‘Under the law in the state of Texas deadly force is authorized and justified in order to stop an aggravated sexual assault or sexual assault,’ District Attorney Heather McMinn told reporters in June.

‘All the evidence provided by the sheriff’s department and the Texas Rangers indicated that’s what was occurring when the victim’s father arrived at the scene,’ she said.

Authorities said he expressed regret at the killing at the time, and no evidence so far has led them to doubt his story. The girl’s grandfather agreed it had been an accident.

‘My son. Sorry,’ the grandfather told the Victoria Advocate in broken English. ‘It was an accident.’

Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon added: ‘He was very remorseful. I don’t think it was his intent for the man to die.’

Residents of the small Lavaca County town were largely in support of the father, saying the victim deserved it.

Sonny Jaehne, a Shiner native, told the Victoria Advocate: ‘He got what he deserved, big time.

Friend Mark Harabis reiterated this: ‘I agree with him totally. I would probably do worse.

‘The family will have to deal with that the rest of their lives, no matter what happens to the father. Even if they let him go, he and his child will have to deal with that the rest of their lives.’

Former WWE Wrestler Ric Flair Says He Has Been With 10,000 Women And Drank 10 Beers Everyday For 20 Years

Former WWE fighter Ric Flair has revealed a shocking truth about himself.

The star has come out to display explicit details of what his lifestyle has been for the past 20 years.

The star recently announced publicly that he has bedded ten thousand women and drank ten beers every day for the past 20 years.

The WWE Nature Boy, close to the heart of millions of WWE fans, has provided the audience with a shocking account of his personal life details in ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentaries.

The documentary aired last night and had amazed viewers worldwide.

Flair was regarded as one of the most skilled and renowned professional wrestlers of all time. He was a cultural icon in the 80s.

Flair is the only WWE wrestler that has had his name TWICE in the Hall of Fame

Ric Flair has won the Heavyweight Championship 16 times!

When talking about the sport, Ric revealed that ‘it was something I was really good at. Then it became a disease.’

According to the account provided in the documentary, his professional wrestling skills were the reason for his undying fame and fortune. However, he was unable to find lasting happiness in it.

His views on marriage and monogamy were also an exciting part of the documentary. Ric Flair could not take marriage and monogamy seriously.It was just not him.

He says ‘I probably took it real serious for about a day… I mean, I tried, but it just- I was miserable.’ It is not a surprise that after such views about marriage, Ric had four divorces in his lifetime. He also has a total of four children from the four marriages.

In nexus to the above topic of marriage and women, Ric was also asked about how many women he has been in his life to which he responded “Maybe, 10,000” Woah!

Ric also confessed about his poor drinking habits. He sorted therapy by visiting a psychologist to tackle his unhealthy addiction to drinking.

He told the psychologist in 1980’s that ” I’ll drink at least ten beers, and probably five mixed drinks (every day).”

Flair then responded: ‘Oh yeah, it is.’

Adding more insight to his therapy sessions Flair stated, ‘ By the time I got through with that son of a b****, he was laying on the couch, and I was on the chair talking to him.’

He stated, ‘There’s no way I should be alive after some of the stuff I’ve done.’ Flair was taken to the hospital in August owing to his growing ‘organ problems.’

When asked for feedback regarding the documentary made on him, he said, ‘I liked it. It was eye-opening. I figured, if you’re going to do it, you might as well open up.’

Well, we must say this brutal honesty did make his documentary the most interesting one to the audiences worldwide.

There have been ongoing reports about the former wrestler’s health. Ric Flair has had a successful surgery; however, more treatments need to be done to attain complete recovery.

Melinda Morris Zanoni of Legacy Talent and Entertainment, who is Ric Flair’s Public Relations in charge tweeted: ‘Ric had surgery today (not [heart related)I am happy 2 report it was a success.Still a long road ahead so plz keep praying 4Ric. Charlotte Megan David&Wendy.’

Ric Flair had quit the wrestling arena in 2011 with no health problems.

His doctors called him a ‘medical miracle’ because he encountered no health problems after four years of quitting the professional wrestling practice.

Charles Manson, notorious criminal and cult leader, dies at 83

BAKERSFIELD, California —

Charles Manson, the mass murderer whose name became synonymous with evil after his followers’ 1969 Los Angeles killing spree, died Sunday.

Manson, who spent the last 48 years behind bars, was 83. He died of natural causes at Kern County Hospital, according to California’s Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Manson and his followers, known as the Manson Family, struck fear into the hearts of Los Angeles when they slaughtered at least seven people in the summer of 1969, including actress Sharon Tate, the pregnant wife of director Roman Polanski.

Since his 1971 conviction, he has remained a horrifying and fascinating figure in pop culture, as the subject of books and movies and the occasional rambling media interview.

While there have been other serial killers over the years who have committed even more murders, Manson has managed to hold the public’s fascination like almost no other.

“I was thinking today about why Manson is so remembered and such a part of our cultural history, whereas other serial killers have done far worse,” said former Associated Press Special Correspondent Linda Deutsch, who covered the 1970-71 trials of Manson and his followers, as well as all of their parole hearings until she retired two years ago.

It was, she concluded, because Manson killed more than just seven people. He also destroyed a Baby Boomer generation’s dream of a peace-and-love era that had begun with 1967’s San Francisco Summer of Love, two years before Los Angeles’ 1969 Manson murders.

“For most of that period, the hippies up in San Francisco and throughout the country really spread a message of love and understanding,” Deutsch said. “And now here come these people who wore these hippie clothes and although they were not hippies, they were just people who came together in a commune, they became symbolic of that hippie era.

“In addition to killing seven people, he killed a whole counterculture,” she added.

A career criminal and con artist, Manson had reinvented himself during the Summer of Love as a Christ-like figure who attracted young people to a commune he established at an old, abandoned movie ranch on the edge of Los Angeles.

“To tell you the truth, the older I get the harder it is to deal with all of this, to know what I did, how it happened,” one of the youngest of his followers, Leslie Van Houten, told a parole panel in September. The panel has recommended she be released, but Gov. Jerry Brown could reject that recommendation as he did once before. No Manson Family member convicted of murder has ever been freed.

Van Houten, now 68, explained how Manson used sex, drugs, repeated playings of the Beatles’ “White Album” and readings from the Bible to persuade his young followers that they could launch a race war between blacks and whites by killing people, then hide in the desert until it was over.

But what Manson really wanted to do, Deutsch said, was become famous.

At one point he’d befriended the late Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson with hopes of becoming a musician as famous as those in Wilson’s group. The music industry ultimately dismissed him as crazy and dangerous and, worse yet to his way of thinking, only marginally talented.

“So he wanted to make a statement and be the star that Hollywood wouldn’t let him be,” said Deutsch. “And he was demonic.”

But Charles Milles Manson’s life of crime began decades before the murders that made him infamous.

He served time in an Indiana boys home for burglary when he was in his teens.

He went on to become one of the nation’s most famous mass murderers, with a chilling ability to persuade people to commit murder on his behalf.

“I never told anyone directly to go anywhere or do anything,” he said at one of his multiple parole hearings over the years. “I always said … you know what to do.”

In the late 1960s Manson’s cult-like “family” lived in the Spahn Ranch near Chatsworth. He was a frustrated musician and songwriter and was particularly fascinated with the Beatles song “Helter Skelter” which he believed was about an apocalyptic race war – a conflict he hoped to ignite by the killings.

On Aug. 9, 1969 Manson ordered four of his followers to break into Tate’s home. They killed five people, including Tate, who was eight months pregnant. They scribbled the word “pig” on the front door in her blood.

The next night his followers murdered Rosemary and Leno LaBianca in the same grisly fashion.

The murders shocked the nation. Manson and his followers – Tex Watson, Leslie Van Houten, Patricia Krenwinkel and Susan Atkins – were convicted and sentenced to death.

But a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1972 ended California’s death penalty.

State law at the time made him eligible for parole. He was denied a dozen times over the years.

While serving life in prison, Manson seemed to bask in his infamy.

“Is Charlie Manson crazy?” he said in an interview with ABC News. “Sure. He’s as mad as a hatter. What difference does it make? Being crazy used to mean something. Nowadays, everybody’s crazy.”

Debra Tate, the sister of Sharon Tate, released a statement to ABC News about Manson’s death:

“My most important message is clarifying what people are saying right now. People are saying that this should be some kind of relief, but oddly enough it really isn’t. While Charlie may be gone, it’s the ones that are still alive that perpetrate everything and it was up to their imaginations for what brutal things were going to be done. In an odd way I see them as much more dangerous individuals. Right now we have one Manson family member on deck who has been granted a parole date and its very important – I mean, I sit in rooms with each of these individuals, some of them once a year every year, and it’s important for people to know that these are individuals that are still brutal monsters capable of committing heinous crimes. Although I’ve forgiven, I have not forgotten, and I feel it’s very important that they stay exactly where they are until they die. And in that way Charlie was the least of my worries. And I actually pray for his soul as I did Susan Atkins when she died. And that’s the way I was raised and I hope that he gets some kind of mercy, he didn’t show that to any of our victims, but I try to come from a higher place and I hope he gets some mercy.”

Married High School Teacher Accused Of Second-Degree Rape And Child Porn Possession!

According to the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office, Hunter Day, a teacher with Yukon Public Schools, was arrested after they received a complaint that she was having an illegal relationship with an underaged boy.

Authorities said the boy’s parents brought their son’s cellphone to the Sheriff’s Office, and asked for a forensic review of the phone. The parents told investigators that they had already been through the phone and found text messages and nude photos, and were concerned that Day had already had sex with their son.

During the course of the phone examination, investigators said they determined that Day and boy had already had sexual intercourse, and that additional plans had been made to meet at her home Wednesday afternoon to have sex again.

With the information that a prearranged meeting was already in place, Investigators said they used the boy’s cell phone to contact Day, acting as if they were him, and asked if the meeting was still on, and Day replied “Yes,” and indicated that he should hurry up and get there before her husband got home from work.

Investigators said when they arrived at Day’s home, they sent a text message to Day from the boy’s cell phone, and said “I’m here.” Day responded, “the doors unlocked as usual.” Investigators opened the door and found Day sitting on the living floor with the lights turned off, candles lit, and wearing a T-shirt and workout shorts.

Utah Nurse Arrested For Doing Her Job Reaches $500,000 Settlement

The nurse who was roughly arrested at a Salt Lake City hospital has settled with the city and the university that owns the hospital for $500,000.

Police body camera footage from the July incident showed an officer roughly arresting Alex Wubbels after she refused to allow him to draw blood from an unconscious patient.

At the beginning of the video, she is seen calmly reading the officer the hospital’s policy not to allow blood to be drawn without a warrant or the patient’s consent, unless the patient is under arrest. “This is something you guys agreed to with this hospital,” she explains.

Then the officer lunges at Wubbels, forces her outside and handcuffs her as she screams that she has done nothing wrong.

The footage drew widespread outrage when it was released by the nurse and her attorney. It became part of a broader conversation about police use of force.

“We all deserve to know the truth and the truth comes when you see the actual raw footage and that’s what happened in my case,” Wubbels told reporters on Tuesday. “No matter how truthful I was in telling my story, it was nothing compared to what people saw and the visceral reaction people experienced when watching the footage of the experience that I went through.”

The settlement deal covers all possible defendants from lawsuits, The Associated Press reports, including individual police officers and hospital security guards.

Salt Lake City and the University of Utah will split the cost of the settlement.

Wubbels says she will use a portion of the money to help people get access to police body camera footage of incidents involving themselves, The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Her attorney’s firm will provide free legal services for those seeking access to video. Wubbels says she also plans to donate to the Utah Nurses Association and help lead the #EndNurseAbuse campaign.

Last month, the Salt Lake Police Department fired the arresting officer, Detective Jeff Payne, and demoted his watch commander, Lt. James Tracey, to the rank of officer. The Tribune reports that both men have appealed the punishment, and that a criminal investigation into Wubbels’ arrest is ongoing.

Wubbels told the AP that she would be disappointed if the disciplinary measures are overturned, though she says it’s not in her control.

“The police have to police themselves,” she said. “This is something I never would have expected to happen, but I’m also honored by the weight of it.”

Yet Another Teacher Charged With Having Sex With Three Students

A 25-year-old math teacher at a North Carolina public charter school has been arrested on suspicion of carrying on sexual relationships with three male students.

Erin McAuliffe was taken into custody on Thursday and charged with three counts of sexual activity with a student and one count of indecent liberties with a minor.

Police launched an investigation into McAuliffe in May after officials at Rocky Mount Preparatory called them to report allegations of misconduct against the teacher.

Detectives with the Rocky Mount Police Department conducted interviews with students and staff at the school, which has 1,300 students from kindergarten to 12th grade, before obtaining a warrant for McAuliffe’s arrest this week.

According to police, the math teacher’s alleged sexual encounters with the three students all took place off campus.

McAuliffe was ordered held in the Carteret County Jail on $20,000 bond pending her first court appearance scheduled for June 12, reported WITN.

School administrators at Rocky Mount Prep said that the 25-year-old educator was fired on May 4, a day before police were tipped off about her alleged dalliances with minors.

Police said two of the victims are 17 years old and the third is 16 years old, reported the station WNCN.

According to her LinkedIn profile, McAuliffe graduated from Methodist University in 2014 with a Bachelor’s degree in mathematics.

She was hired at Rocky Mount Prep in August 2016 after a brief stint as a data analyst at a San Diego-based law firm.

McAuliffe’s social media posts suggest that she is not married and lives in Rocky Mount with a dog and a cat, but in one of the photos, McAuliffe appears to be wearing an engagement ring in the photo on the left… Man, would it suck to be that guy right now.
