American Says Failed Venezuelan Invasion Was to Arrest Maduro

Luke Alexander Denman, an American, was employed to guide a ragtag team of insurgents to seize the Caracas airport, overthrow President Nicolás Maduro and fly him to the U.S., the imprisoned Iraq war veteran explained in a video introduced by Venezuela Wednesday.

Instead, Mr. Denman, 34, from Austin, Texas, and another American, Airan Berry, forty two, who has addresses in Florida and Texas, ended up among the thirteen “terrorists” whom the Venezuelan govt said ended up captured in a thwarted weekend incursion.
