Washington Post U.S. Says CIA Crew Urged Against Attack on Plane (washingtonpost.com): "Although the American crew aboard the surveillance tracking plane tried to persuade the Peruvian liaison officer to intervene to slow the confrontation, they did not contact the fighter pilot directly, the U.S. official said. He said American personnel, by agreement, are not in the Peruvian chain of command and have no authority to direct Peruvian operations." The Post taps its sources in the CIA to flesh out the account of the incident.
