Newly released video shows the moment that agents with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration opened fire on a boat in Honduras in 2012, killing four civilians—including two pregnant women. The video, obtained by ProPublica and The New York Times, appears to show the civilians did not open fire on DEA agents, as the agency has long claimed in public statements and in congressional testimony. The video’s release followed a scathing report by the inspectors general of the Justice and State Departments who say the DEA repeatedly lied about the incident. The agents were part of a now-shuttered task force known as the Foreign-deployed Advisory Support Team, or FAST, which was trained in military-style anti-drug raids.
