“DRAMATIC video has emerged showing a bungled CIA drug operation that led to Peruvian fighter jets shooting down a light plane carrying American missionaries.
The disturbing 2001 surveillance plane footage, aired on America’s ABC News, shows the Peruvian fighters opening fire on a seaplane being shadowed by a CIA aircraft.
The fighters opened up on the missionary flight despite CIA officers having serious concerns about whether or not the plane they were following was carrying drugs.”

A major stuffup. The likes of which happen more the more firearms become a way of doing things.
Good that this stuff actually comes into public domain (eventually) rather than being swept under the carpet.
Saw the footage on TV. Was horrified. Totally agree with Eric that it was good it actually came into the public domain rather than being swept under the carpet. Feel quite sad for the family of the victims who deserve to be heavily compensated by both the US and Chilean governments as part of natural justice. It was actually a sort of summary execution by the military.
Correction, Peruvian government. Saw the footage on the ABC a few days ago.
