Explosives set, and safely from the LZ we blow the lab. Blackhawk descends to extract team.

From the air you can see the magnitude of blast. Also near end of video you can see the second team blackhawk circling below. Mission was successful and all members back safe. Three days before this operation, three eradicators team members were killed on a mission we were supposed to be on.

This lab was seized and it was more advanced than labs in Peru. It included presses and ovens to produce cocaine chloride, which is the final product. After the video you see here, the lab was burned and coca fields were destroyed. One booby trap in the field was found and purposely exploded. Colombia produces 80% of the world’s cocaine. This is a forgotten war, but necessary to fight. Addiction holds many people ransom and void of the gospel. In the word it says, “How can one hear without a preacher?” That is certainly true and it can also be said in our time, “How can one hear when high?”

This boat was caught two days south of Pucallpa. It contained  large amounts of chemicals used to create brute cocaine paste.  This seizure was immediately following the new intelligence gained from the informants being held in Lima.  The boat will now be used to police the waterways by the Dinandro (anti-narcotics division of Peru).
