Summary:

The U.S. Navy secretly contracted for a fleet of 33 jets that were used to fly terror suspects to countries known to practice torture, according to documents The Associated Press obtained under FOIA. The Navy Engineering Logistics Office gave at least 10 U.S. aviation companies contracts in 2001-02 for the "occasional airlift of USN cargo worldwide," the documents revealed.

Notes:

The Associated Press used FOIA to obtain documents from the Department of Defense which identified 33 planes linked to NELO; other stories had only reported the involvement of 26 planes.
