Drones attack Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela in August. Here is the story inside
A person came as an attack arranger, claiming that it was made by a group of Venezuelan Army defectors and others. In an exclusive interview with CNN, he told how they prepared for the attack, and provided cellphone videos of their drones, explosives, and flight training in rural rural farmlands of Colombia.
"We have tried every peaceful and democratic way to put an end to this tyrannical self-sufficiency as democracy," he told CNN on condition of anonymity, referring to the Maduro regime. "We have friends in custody, tortured. This is a difficult decision."
He also said that the attack could kill innocent civilians alongside their target. "That's the danger we have to do," he said. "We are concerned that Venezuelan people are always the feelings of the consequences."
Venezuela's self-proclaimed provisional president, his opposition leader Juan Guaido, told CNN that he did not approve the attack.
"Such choices are not good," he said. He added that he suspected the attack was presented. "I think it's something inside, done by the government. They're making ends as victims."
US National Security advisor John Bolton said in the morning after an attack that could be detected to give Maduro government a "reason," perhaps for a crackdown. However since then, US officials have said intelligently tell CNN that they believe that a real attack has been lost.
Chaos in Caracas
In August 201
8, the chaos came from the center of Caracas.
While Maduro focuses on a military parade in Avenida Bolivar, one of the capital's main routes, civilians and soldiers are scattered alike. The news in news cameras and social media in the event captures fragmented images of the horrific fog of smoke in the city, a crew of scattered soldiers, floating guards to protect the president . drone assassination attempt "class =" media__image "src =" http://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/180804182632-caracas-explosion-interrupcion-discurso-maduro-militares-corriendo-brk-venezuela-00002017- large-169.jpg "/>
Only later is the story is pieced together: Two small drones flying over the event have exploded. The damage is not enough, yet injured seven members of the Venezuelan National Guard An unidentified Maduro said he thought that explosions were firecrackers.
As a result, dozens of people were arrested while Venezuelan officials launched investigations to work out who orchestrated by a violent attack Some have been tortured, activists say, while others on the list of government suspects remain large. Maduro also blows activist activists and the government of Colombia, who denied any res ponsibility.
Organizers of the CNN attack say that Colombia is not involved. He said drone attacks were administered by a group including defectors from the Venezuelan military, with the aim of slaughtering Maduro.
The attacker allegedly attacks that he has met several US officials three times after the attack. "Afterwards, they set up three meetings that I thought were to collect information to study the case, but it did not depart," he said.
"They wanted to get information and then we asked for things back, they helped, then they left their notes, and they did not appear again."
A spokesperson the United States Department of State refused to comment on alleged meetings, but said: "Our policy is to support the peaceful transition to Venezuela." CNN did not find the evidence that the meetings took place .
The plan was justified by the guards that caused drones to explode early, says the attacker. Blockers of cell phone signals that protect the president are suddenly returning, causing blasts.
The Venezuelan government's report on the attack, provided by the interior minister, proves parts of their story, including the drone paths of drones. ] Still from the video provided by the attacker, showing one of the drones of his group.

The attack was prepared on a rented farm in rural Colombia. A few weeks before Maduro's speech, Venezuelan defectors have ordered commercial available drones online from the United States, and they are tailored to detonate a homemade bomb through the remote control app.
In videos defect given to CNN, you can hear the men complaining that the screws of the drones are too small. It's hard to read the Chinese letter in the boxes, says one.
Videos also show the group performing tricky bit: drones are flying enough to avoid detection, and then swooping at a steep angle to strike their targets. They work in different situations: in the middle of a green hill in a swimming pool, launched in a car window, under the cover of the night. A drone is later mixed with a test.
Later, they dismantled the machines to enter the border with Venezuela. Once returned to their homeland, they gradually rebuilt the two drones reserved for the president.
