The Senegal Timer: CIA Cable 20/02/1988

 

“I recall that I then went back to my office and called Jean Collin, who told me that: ‘Everything was ok. We got them, the explosives, the blasting caps and the pistols’.  Later in the day, I met with Collin at his office and he provided me with information set forth in Cable 50260.” CIA Kenneth Steiner

DE54-1

Note: Zulu (Zero) time is equivalent to GMT, and Dakar is actually on GMT time. Therefore, the cable was sent on 22:37 local time.

One Response to The Senegal Timer: CIA Cable 20/02/1988

  1. Craig says:

    NOTE: Kenneth Wesly Stiener presents himself as a sharp, seasoned intelligence field operative, with a very keen sense of observation. For example, unasked he described Ed Marshman to me literally down to his moustache and the apparent reason [a scar] why Ed wears one. Similarly, prior to being shown the photographs of Sabir, he described the black eye which appears in the photo.
    Precognosced by Brian Murtagh on 15 September 1999.

    The aforementioned foot note provided by Brian Murtagh of ‘Kenneth Wesly Stiener’.
    Accordingly, amongst other things, Stiener retains a very keen sense of observation and information without any prompt.

    Steiner also states the operation originated while the Senegal President and/or Collin time in a Paris hospital.
    Rather convenient.
    This is a knowing qualifier, so Steiner or anyone else cannot provide any information of the origin of the operation.

    Note this statement by Steiner –
    “Prior to the arrival of Niasse and the two Libyans, I had a conversation with Collin who was upset because he believed that the U.S. Government had contacted the Ivorian Government in an unsuccessful attempt to have the Libyans arrested when the plane atopped [stopped] at Abidjan. In any event, Collin told me that Niasse, accompanied by the two Libyans would be arriving on the Air Afrique flight from Cotonou early on the morning of February 20, 1988. Literally at the crack of dawn on February 20, 1988.”

    This is a wee bit of a monumental slip by Steiner;
    How could Collin be aware of a proposed US intervention prior to the planned Senegal airport intervention ?
    Did someone who was connected with the Ivorian Government contact Collin to inform of a US intervention, or was Collin just fabricating this information ?
    Apparently Collin was only talking to Steiner ?

    Consider this statement by Steiner;
    “I arrived at Dakar – Yof Aisport in time to see the Air AEque flight land and taxi to the VIP terminal. From where I was standing I could see that the red carpet was laid out and that the Gendarmes were lined up on either side as a guard of honor. I saw three individuals deplane, and walk on the red caret into the VIP terminal. I recall that the three were dressed as follows:
    Number 1, I believe to be [Ahmed Khalifa] Niasse based upon the fact that this individual was wearing a white robe and white hat; which was not normal Senegalese national dress, but rather was worn by Summi Muslim holymen, such as Niasse.
    Number 2 and Number 3 were wearing western style dress consiskg of pants and shirts.
    These were the only individuals who deplaned and entered the VIP terminal, the rest of the passengers deplaned and entered the regular passenger terminal. Due to the poor light conditions I was not able to see the final features of those individuals, and this frustrated me.

    Note the ‘red carpet’ and ‘guard of honour’ arrival of the noted individuals who entered the VIP terminal where the plane taxied.

    Consider Steiner testimony at Court;

    Q Did you learn that a particular flight was due to arrive at Dakar Airport in the early hours
    of the 20th of February of 1988?
    A Yes, sir.
    Q And did you go to the airport in order to meet that flight? [2911]
    A I did, yes, sir.
    Q When you arrived in the early hours of the 20th, had the flight already landed?
    A Yes, sir.
    Q And at that time, were passengers disembarked by going down a flight of moveable
    steps?

    A I notice — I could see a group of people leaving the aeroplane, going down to be — to
    meet an escort —

    Q My fault, Mr. Steiner. Just let’s step back a second.
    Passengers who would be awaiting to disembark would do so by going down steps rather
    than through a tunnel, for instance?
    A That’s correct, sir.

    Q I understand. When you arrived at Dakar Airport in the early hours of the 20th, were
    steps in position at the aircraft?
    A Yes, sir.
    Q Did you see anybody disembark?
    A No, sir. I saw them at the foot of the stairs. I assumed they had disembarked from the
    aircraft.
    Q I understand. So by the time you arrived, you saw people at the bottom of the stairs?
    [2912]
    A Yes, sir.
    Q How many people did you see at the bottom of the stairs?
    A There were several, sir, some in uniform and some not in uniform. I couldn’t tell exactly
    the number.
    Q I understand. What type of uniform are you speaking of?
    A The gendarmes.
    Q The Senegal —
    A The Senegal gendarmes.
    Q So some of the people that you saw were plainly Senegal gendarmes?
    A Yes, sir.
    Q Were there, however, others who appeared not to be gendarmes?
    A Yes, sir.
    Q Were any of those others wearing formal religious clothing of the type —
    A One of those individuals, yes, sir.
    Q One of them?
    A Yes.
    Q Were you able to recognise who that was?
    A No, sir.
    Q Why was that? [2913]
    A I was too far away from that, sir.
    Q I understand.

    A I assumed this was Ahmed Khalifa Niasse, based on other information, but —
    Q I understand. In addition to the gendarmes and the person wearing the clothing, the
    formal religious clothing, did you see any other people?

    A No, sir — oh, there were a couple of other people with Niasse, yes.

    Q I see. Were you able to tell how many?
    A No, sir, not clearly.

    Q Did you see what happened to Niasse and the others?
    A Yes, sir. They were escorted to the VIP lounge, which was a building adjacent to the
    main airport building.
    Q By the gendarmes.
    A Yes.

    Q And once they had been taken to the VIP lounge, did you see any other passengers
    disembark?

    A No, sir. My interest was in this group. I didn’t wait for the other disembarkation.

    Q I understand. Did you see Jean Colin at the airport that evening? [2914]
    A No, sir.

    It is important to read Steiner precognition statement which the Crown had and full knowledge of, consider the way and manner the Crown Advocate both prompted and stepped in to stop what Steiner was willingly going to say at Court.

    Incredulously, Stenier did not ever describe the ‘red carpet’ and ‘guard of honour’ which was apparently provided at the airport.

    Why would Steiner forget and completely omit this information through all the questions asked ?
