now was the intention of the award. when you give me the finger toward the arm. in colombia jordan good rose venezuelan partner former major general cleve there was also angry people here a little goofy here is one of you is the leader we love freedom even so secretly recorded by venezuelan security and told a sympathizer he still believed his partner good row was acting with the us government has been looking good in the long. long also the longer you live that will go if you want me at. the community. meanwhile in the colombian training camps some of the more recent arrivals we're beginning to attract suspicion. of all of us whether here. as well or are
you know your people are. very moved. in my mom are going from blow up or what we have to worry about him. missing from. both of the other so you see on video more so i can be so they get a rise out of as these photos show training in the camps was really mentary in part because weapons promised by good rope and yet to arrive in late march 2020 shipment was flagged down at a police checkpoint in colombia after months of turning a blind eye to the plot to stick to it he's the authorities had to step in order to live their lives so when i learned a lot more boys will identify it will be local philip one might be if you pick a people they want to as a fundamental get an angle into a local syllabi over there are if you will obviously never going to them with that
. full of machines. the impounded. weapons willing to put on show for the press they included assault rifles laser sights and night vision goggles that would have greatly enhanced the insurgents fighting how an. america could be as close ally was also not playing at all it is a price move charge former major general cleaver will not cut extract thinking together with this sort of opponent president might do and to uscis millions were offered for their capture and alkali agreed to be extradited to the united states. scooped out colossal arrest most of the trainee fighters subscribe to the remainder went into hiding in the working it out days it among them 2 of good roads still the course associates former us soldiers denman and bury. me more presuming. he or.
no more it all goes over real for me for i'm going to go swimming it's all mental over him abuse here in north korea more and more muslim law all those innocent women going to jail for assault. but according to venezuela's defense minister their location was never a secret see the former seal the. book where. he claims colombian authorities could have easily arrested the man and with u.s. support it was still secretly packing the plotters not about soften them in. order for. it does show it this is some of the you know well you know you take the calling out of the medical and so strangely i mean by the colombian authorities
operation gideon was on may 1st 2021 of us live up here so not a big dollar one that is not only you know you won't roll it over like you know this you see it so you don't like the part where there are those that will run totally oh my god there are good women with a little put out they don't pay off the old d.v.d. compromised by venezuelan intelligence and now down to a few dozen competitions there would be the surgeons was still intent on going ahead the plan was to circumvent blanket orders and get a venezuelan out into small but there's a lot all you know your can do. it means when it's military knew exactly when and when they were coming. in the early hours of may 3rd as captain pan terrace for the 1st of 2 approached the coast it came under heavy fire. were not seen as on by then they really got to the shore going around. even to the
land's end i. mean that is where the security forces and respond with overwhelming force. not of one terrorist made stronger and somebody. the 2nd boat was no one like he said with engine problems started running low on fuel it was carrying $51.00 venezuelans and the 2 american mercenaries you damn men and iran bury well on spinning. there's a petrol bomb. in the middle of lunch or was a little too much at the core of the my it are. somehow those are left in being the one to form a ball and bought a bottle for a. here's what i. don't know although surely by now aware that this man had run into problems back in florida civil course boss decided
to unveil his master plan which form of it is what an army can have you need to continue to at his side could prove reveal operation give you on to the war something 100 hours a daring and fabulous raid was launched from the border of colombia deep into the heart of caracas our men are continuing to fight right now our units have been activated in the south west and east of venezuela the truth was somewhat different . the. day. we. see.
as they approached the coast and the battered boat francisco and others decided they'd had enough. because i was out on my. own with the. choosing of the employee board level. in the. francisco in 45 all this had gone away for the moment but the 2 americans and some of the group's leaders stayed on board. policewoman ingrid cuz then you was among those waiting for. the company adam mayes we actually thought it. a lot of it i thought you know more money money money. well nigh now that i got a lot more. money out of money and wealth or less
a move they're saving and so i wanted to model untiring and same thing answer a lot either follow the background perry from a lot of evil but i learned when i would look i. thought at. the moment only from fine you don't know if it i mean i want to hijack the era but i think that on a very some of this is. that it be on the level i don't know if the men were arrested and lined up in front of the media the presence of 2 americans prompted the obvious question who was behind the attempted invasion interviewed in the back of a police car insurgent going forward well i have no doubt and i look for you know i don't know. what i saw.
the wrong president might do had no doubts either. you know my no no we're not you know not. knowing what america drew said no longer used its own soldiers but relied on private companies to fight its way through. but you see by labelling but ily more you think that i mean you know. but this is the sort of i use a 7 figure them but it's a. full ones venezuelans across the political divide in the united believing that jordan goodrem had the backing of the u.s. government but donald trump's response was dismissive we just heard about it 1 but whatever it is will let you know but it has nothing to do with our government up until then the role of venezuela's opposition leaders had been known only to insiders but faced with criticism about his role in operation guinea on.
decides to go public there is really no your name there is a contract absolutely let me see if you can read it you have probably read it why you know i have been made up in an interview with venezuelan journalist patricio jordan good drove reveal that opposition leader why does signature was on the contract and that he was still trying to get paid i'm out a lot of marty a lot by the lot of miners a lot of us came together to do this i mean i've been a freedom fighter my whole life this is all i know shortly after giving this interview could rather than lead to phone recording which apparently captured the moment that signed the contract and i was resident person each. would write. the. way.
we managed to get an interview with plan michael in hiding in qatar and ask him about his involvement in the failed not. win over this young. lady. ah holy nice little earner yes i do insist that the venezuelan government was responsible for operation gideon he accused them of using infiltrators to trick the invaders into going ahead against all odds we are going to get us on those are. in the middle east. and the us. is it or is it not your voice and your signature can i just get
a simple yes or no you know. what i'm going to get on with and it was a bit of a. look at him of the men that not all look at us and. i'm like why do when don has admitted he's involvement he too blames venezuela i'm recognizing there was a good point intelligence operation of the government we me smart guy with a spirit of 33 years and consulting was like still believe caught. i feel bad about it because there is people wildcards are torture when he played it i was disposed the commission was dismantled the brazier was affected but saying that venezuelan intelligence hijacked the operation is that not just a way for you to escape responsibility no no no i am assuming full responsibility and of honest i would do it again. but not everyone is able to take the outcome so
lightly. most assume in the early days of going to one of the role for moment where we have most of. them at all must i could always a former. ally have been upper middle and to be so it will not put her there much about her but as i have a lot of money. to date good row continues. to insist that the opposition never explicitly told him to stop working for them and he's using lawyers to claim money from rand on meanwhile president my bhutto's party has taken control of the national assembly in the process removing one by dawes justification for claiming the presidency in maduro's beach to mark the reopening of that is embley to no one's surprise he highlighted once again the failed attempt to unseat him it turns out. they may be that i did but i feel it's just i don't know about.
