Venezuela’s Maduro Says Two US Mercenaries Captured in Failed Bay of Pigs Style Plot

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said on Monday that authorities have arrested two US citizens among the 13 captured “mercenaries” involved in the foiled attempt to land on the coast of La Gaira.

In a televised address from the Miraflores Presidential Palace in Caracas, Maduro showed the US passports and badges seized from the alleged “mercenaries” Luke Alexander Denman and Airan Berry.

“They were captured in this raid, the Americans Airan Berry Sack, a professional mercenary of the United States confessed, a security member of Donald Trump, and Mr Luke Alexander Denman, also a member of Donald Trump’s security, they have already confessed and all the terrorist group, they are already testifying,” said the Venezuelan president.

“The Government of the United States of America is fully and completely involved in this raid, defeated by the solid civic-military-police union of Venezuela,” he added.

According to the local authorities, the Venezuelan police seized ten rifles, two machine guns which had been stolen in 2019, six trucks and a boat from the group on Sunday. The Venezuelan government alleged that the illegal speedboat incursion was part of a plan that would evolve into acts of terrorism and eventually an attempted coup.

Responsibility was reportedly claimed for the operation by American military veteran Jordan Goudreau who leads Florida-based security company Silvercorp, as he said on Monday that he was working with the two US men to detain Maduro and “liberate” Venezuela.
