Entwistle double murder case: More here than meets the eye?
Neil Entwistle, the 27-year old Briton accused of shooting to death his wife
Rachel and baby daughter Lillian on January 19, has been linked to classified
work on special Internet surveillance software, according to source close to
U.S. intelligence. Entwistle was recently extradited back to the United States
from Britain to face double murder charges. Entwistle has pleaded not guilty
to the charges.
Police claimed Entwistle shot his wife and daughter with a .22 semi-automatic
smuggled out of his father-in-laws home.
Entwistle's firm, Embedded New Technologies (ENT), reportedly had connections
to the Braintree, Massachusetts-based firm P-Tech, which was investigated subsequent
to 911 by the FBI for ties to Muslim Brotherhood financiers linked to Al Qaeda.
P-Tech also had software contracts for the FAA, NORAD, Pentagon, and White House
during the 9-11 terrorist attacks. According to Entwistle's mother-in-law, he
also told his wife that he had large amounts of money held in "offshore"
Entwistle was flown from Gatwick Airport in England to Hanscom Air
Force Base in Massachusetts aboard one of the CIA Gulfstream planes previously
used to fly "renditioned" Al Qaeda suspects around the world. Entwistle
was accompanied by U.S. Marshals. TV footage of the aircraft studiously avoided
showing the plane's tail number. After questions were raised about the use of
the Gulfstream, Massachusetts authorities claimed it had merely "rented"
the U.S. government's aircraft for the sole purpose of transporting Entwistle.
