    A SMALL plane carrying American missionaries in Peru's Amazon jungle region has been shot down by a Peruvian air force jet, killing a woman and her young daughter.

    It happened after the Peruvian pilot mistook it for an airplane transporting contraband drugs.

    The Rev E C Haskell, spokesman for the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism, said five people were aboard the group's plane when it was attacked yesterday en route from the Peruvian border to the city of Iquitos, about 625 miles north east of Lima.

    Missionary Veronica 'Ronnie' Bowers, aged 35, and her 7-month- old adopted daughter, Charity, were both killed and veteran missionary

    The CIA has a history of lying to Presidents and Congress.

    Basically it's an organization which fails to provide much information of any real value to our government.

    It has a dismal record given how much money we've given it over the last fifity years.

    I consider this failure a damned shame since our nation's need for timely information is so critical.
