Rudi Dekkers has been regularly entering the U.S. illegally through the Bahamas, the MadCowMorningNews has learned.

In an effort to evade U.S. Customs scrutiny, the infamous Dutch national running the Venice FL. flight school which both terrorist pilots who crashed into the World Trade Center used as “cover” is slipping into the U.S. from the Bahamas after exchanging clothes with one of the pilots on the charter flight which flew to pick him up.

Then, wearing the charter pilot’s uniform, multiple sources confirm, Dekkers walks through U.S. Customs.

“Rudi looked like the co-pilot when they landed in the U.S.,” stated one source. “His bags were carried through Customs by a female who appeared to be the co-pilot, Christina Hewitt, who flew in with pilot Marcus Huber to pick him up, and who then posed as the customer for the charter flight when they went through Customs.”

Huber is a Swiss national; Hewitt is reportedly from Louisiana, and found employment at the Naples Airport with Dekkers several years ago “cleaning out the planes, which is quite obviously a job you wouldn’t want just anyone doing.”

Well-Deserved Beads of Sweat

Despite his reputation as an international operator, Dekkers was anything but a cool customer. “He had beads of sweat popping out on his forehead,” a pilot who picked him up in Nassau laughingly related to a friend.

“He looked so guilty that we were all afraid we were going to get caught.”

Dekker’s efforts to elude inspection may be partly the result of his notoriety after the 9.11 attack. Officials looked on uneasily while his international jaunts continued without let-up, to destinations which include at least several recent trips to that narco-traffickers destination of choice, Colombia.

At least several of the charter flights were reportedly operated by Rex Air, located at the Naples Airport, and owned by Rex Gasteiger, a German national who purchased a flight school there named Wolf Aero in the late 90’s from Wolfgang Bohringer, another German national, and a close friend of Mohamed Atta, according to Atta’s one-time American girlfriend, Amanda Keller.

Where does Dekkers Get His "Juice?"

During research for “Welcome to TerrorLand” we had discovered a letter about Rex Gasteiger in correspondence files on Dekkers obtained from the Naples Airport, complaining that he (Gasteiger) was "A former employee soliciting to offer private flight instruction without authority and in violation of FAA rules."

Numerous indications point to a massive covert operation involving ‘spooks’ and Saudis in Florida as being responsible for the terrorists’ intrigues in south Florida during the run-up to the 9.11 attack as well as the “fixing” of the last two presidential elections.

We were looking for the answer to a seemingly simple question: How does Rudi Dekkers continue to avoid prosecution?

Where does he get his "juice?"

When an aviation insider in south Florida spoke candidly with us recently about what he saw in Florida during the run-up to the 9.11 attack, it wasn’t what he said that was so shocking... It was that he didn’t mind if we used his name.

Robb Tiller is a South Florida aviation insider and former business partner of secretive financier Wally Hilliard. In an exclusive interview (see video) he spoke frankly about the continuing criminality in the skies over South Florida, and how it involves 9.11 principals Dekkers and Hilliard.

We began by asking: just what his understanding was of what had been going on? Tiller shrugged. “I called the Embassy of the Netherlands in Washington D.C.,” he told us, “and they told me that Rudi was a fugitive.”

"The boys in Florsheim shoes just didn't care"

Tiller was close enough to the “operation” to see something wasn’t right. To his credit, he immediately acted on his suspicions...

“When 911 happened and I saw those guys’ pics on TV, I immediately called my lawyer and he contacted the FBI,” he said.

“But nobody ever came to see me, never heard from them. We were trying to get them to dig in and find out who Rudi and Wally really were, but they would have none of it. It was a cover-up like I never seen... A guy who gets a speeding ticket gets more scrutiny than they had.”
"As big of a mess this whole 9.11 thing was, you would think that the state sept, the CIA, every solid law enforcement agency would be all over Rudi defers and Wally Hilliard, and here they out there just flaunting it, like they could care less."

Yeslam bin laden was sending pilots to Huffman Aviation, we told him. How might that have come about?

His immediate response: "It would have to be through Rudi Dekkers."

They say ex-wives and disgruntled business partners make the best sources, and Robb Tiller most definitely belongs to the latter category. He is quite open about his reasons for loathing secretive financier Wally Hilliard, which stem from a bad business deal.

"I first met Wally Hilliard while looking for backers for an airline I was starting, Havana Air, which had a 135 certificate, with legal flights into Havana Cuba. Somebody told me that he was a multi-millionaire who had sold his insurance company to American express in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and he had moved to south Florida and was spending money like a wild man."

We asked: what’s a 135 certificate, and how does somebody get one?

"Its State Department, it's U.S. Treasury Foreign Assets Control, its Cuba, the Cuban Embassy, U.S. Embassy... everyone’s involved. It's one of the toughest licenses to get."

Islamic fundamentalist flight students... with alcohol on their breath?

The true story of what was going on while Mohamed Atta and his terrorist thug buddies made Florida their personal playground is only beginning to be told…

For example, How many Islamic fundamentalists walk around with alcohol on their breath?

I met the Arabs at the airport when I met the Arabs at the airport, maybe a year before. I met the Arabs while they were taking flight lessons there.

Which Arabs?

The two that flew into the world trade center, Atta and Marwan Somebody knew that I had lived in Saudi Arabia, and knew some Arabic.

"You were a former state department official?"

"I was a marine guard in Dharanan Saudi, and then Katmandu Nepal," Tiller said. "And I started talking to them and the minute I spoke Arabic it spooked them... And so I backed off, and they asked how I knew Arabic, and I told them I used to live there. And that really spooked them. So I backed off, and it didn’t register with me “why” till, of course, much later."

"I heard them cursing, and that surprised me. Because Arabs, Moslems, they don’t cuss, the worse thing they ever say is "maki-muk," which means "no brains." But these guys were cussing regularly. And then I smelled liquor on their breath, and I'm a pilot, and believe me, you don’t drink when you’re taking flying lessons, you just don’t do it. Your brain is taking in everything, and you’re just not confident."

"You just don’t do it."

More about the "other" Magic Dutch Boy

Rudi Dekkers wasn’t the only Magic Dutch Boy" at the Venice Airport that had questionable financing... So did Arne Kruithof, said Tiller. His description of the money man backing Kruithof does nothing to instill confidence in the FBI’s version of events. In fact, the financier behind the second Dutch-run flight school in Venice training terrorists to fly sounded like a character from the movie "The Big Lebowski."

"Glenn Goodman, supposedly, is from the family that owns the Budweiser distributorship in Tampa. And he looks like an old hippie, you wouldn’t t think he had a dime, like he’s straight out of Woodstock, baggy old pair of shorts and a pony tail. He ended up with the fuel concession at the airport, and he was backing Arne Kruithof, and I couldn’t put that together for anything."
Like nearly every aviation executive in south Florida, Tiller scoffs at the FBI’s official explanation…

"Flights schools don’t make money. You know its just not that kind of deal… unless you’ve got Arabs, or…the 9.11 bunch, come in laying out cash. Something was very funny there. The whole thing was bizarre: two people from the same foreign country coming to the little teeny town of Venice...

Why Venice? As a pilot, I know there’s no controlled airspace..."

Tiller let the thought dangle in the air. Then he shrugged. "How in a million years Wally Hilliard ever backed Rudi Dekkers is beyond me. And its beyond everybody else at the Naples airport, too."

He reserves a special scorn for Magic Dutch Boy Rudi Dekkers. "When I saw him testifying on television at the senate hearing investigating 9.11 I thought, my god. couldn’t if they knew who this person was, they certainly put any valuation to anything he said."

"All they had to do was ask anyone in Venice Florida. Or Naples. Or anywhere he goes."

We, of course, agreed. "Nobody in Venice believe a word he says."

Tiller shrugged. "So why would Wally? you tell me….why would Wally put all that money into that partnership?

Who will bring the fruits of democracy to America?

The question hung in the air. Today it still does.

Three years after the Kennedy assassination, the names of many of the principals were already becoming famous… Guy Bannister, David Ferrie, Clay Shaw… all had reason to be nervous.

Guy Bannister, David Ferrie, Clay Shaw… all had reason to be nervous. Today it is a measure of how much freedom we’ve lost in America that three years after 9.11 our mainstream press hasn’t yet named the rogues gallery of players... in fact, hasn’t even admitted that there is one… But people like Robb Tiller beg to differ.

People who were there.

Next week, in part two of our interview with insider tiller, we’ll hear more.


We're almost to the fun part of Michael Roy Fugler's lawsuit! He's going to tell us everything he knows about Adnan Khashoggi when we ask him questions during our deposition.

Probably we will always be being sued, given the current state of America's "not too damn free anymore" press. Please help us continue by making a donation directly into to our defense fund.
