The WOD can't end soon enough.... I'm tired of it being used as a catch all for the .gov to excuse their military involvement in Law Enforcement operations. The power grab that came with the WOD was bad enough, but that in particular bothers me because it was used to skirt Posse Comitatus in Ruby Ridge and Waco when the Jackbooted Thugs got military cooperation/support by claiming there were meth labs on site.

The Peruvians dining lie to congress and cover this up from the American people. The Peruvians didn't ignore procedure and fail to check the plane's tail number.

The Peruvians wanted to shoot down the plane... regardless of anything.

The CIA was against it.

The CIA could have stopped it before it started. A simple check of the plane's registration would have made it clear. Once they started to get doubts they should have said something. It's plain they could have stopped it .... Because once the shooting started and the pilot started screaming the CIA pilots called off the Peruvians.

The CIA does not control the Peruvians.... If they did, the attack would never have happened.

Besides all that, that's one crazy lady taking her son in a plane like that in that kind of a country.... ridiculous.

You are a tad confused. It was an entire missionary family.

What did they expect?

They put their lives in God's hands, and expected a miracle... They got what they got, and it may indeed have been a miracle.

Not true, Kenny. MAF conducts many, many, flights without incident.

At that time, in that place, under those conditions, safe passage would be a staggering feat.

So ... are you saying the drug dealers had gunships flying around shooting down innocent fliers?

Because as far as I can tell, the only planes with guns were under Government control.
