Washington Post U.S. Took Risks In Aiding Peru's Anti-Drug Patrols: "The Central Intelligence Agency, for instance, operates the Citation surveillance jets that flag suspicious planes for Peru's fighter jets. But U.S. officials have had virtually no involvement in on-site investigations of nearly 20 deaths resulting from the 38 incidents in which planes have been shot down or forced to land under Peru's policy of shooting drug planes out of the sky unless they surrender." Another excellent Post article that explains some of the operational complications of US-Peruvian collaboration in the War against Drugs, including negotiations with Vladimiro Montesinos.
