Washington Post Senate Committee Looking Into Drug Interdiction Pact With Peru (washingtonpost.com): "What the committee inquiry will discover, however, according to former CIA surveillance pilots who flew missions in Peru, as well as former and current U.S. officials involved with the policy, is that there is no such guidance, and that the agreement intentionally gives the Americans no authority over Peruvian shootdown decisions. 'We didn't want to be part of a decision process because we didn't want to assume responsibility when somebody made a decision to shoot down an airplane," one official said.'" More digging by the Post's Karen de Young into the political recupercussions of the amazon shootdown.
