Here is an article on an agreement being reached between the US and Brazilian governments on how to shoot down drug planes near the Peru/Brazil/Columbia borders. A bunch of the missionaries I work with down here are pilots for SAM Air (South American Mission) that flies people to hard to reach jungle areas in this same region. I will be interested to hear what they say about this.
On related drug news, the head of Peru's largest airline has been declared a drug kingpin by the US. US citizens are no longer allowed to fly this airline (one of two that flies to Pucallpa). I will link a story when I find one.
