Tosh Plumlee, Part V

In 1999, Tosh Plumlee came on these airwaves and did five hours of interviews, detailing his history of flying drugs into the United States as part of a drug interdiction program.

This is the last of those five hours.

Unfortunately, the audio is very low quality – it was pulled from an 8k realAudio stream dating back from 1999.

At some point in the near future, we’ll pull the original audio and update these files.  But in the meantime, here it is.

And as Mike says in this broadcast – this is one of the most important broadcasts we’ve ever done.

Fast and Furious II

Two weeks ago, we covered ATF’s “Fast and Furious” operation.

Now, a total of three BATF Agents have come forward as whistleblowers to declare that they have been part of the operation – which allowed thousands of guns to “walk” across the border to Mexico. These ATF supplied guns have already been traced to numerous cartel murders including the murder of a US Border Patrol Agent. 

Tonight – we’re rejoined by Bill Conroy from Narco News and Tosh Plumlee, veteran CIA contract pilot, who have been investigating the story.

Videos:
From CBS News

From 60 minutes – in 1993
