Just fair warning, We are getting really close to those "Black helicopters" when we start talking about the 22 Broncos that BATF bought.
But what is known was that they where purchased through a dummy corporation called, "American Warbirds". They where located in a industrial park building in Gaithersburg Maryland. Their neighbors in the park claimed that the facility was a radio shop for the BATF. They also had no phone number listed in the phone book. All this cloak and dagger was apparently meant to conceal the aircraft acquisition by the BATF
What really got the BATF in trouble was that they retained their hardpoints and capability to carry weapons. Although the internally mounted cannon where removed. A definite no-no for civilian law enforcement aircraft.
The outcry over this purchase, which was in 1995 when the BATF was under fire for their part in burning alive several dozen kids in Waco, Texas under orders from then attorney general Janet Reno. She has never been prosecuted for her role in this. It was enough to get congress to refuse to fund the airforce and force it's disposal by the BATF.
All have since been transferred to the US State Department where they are used as crop sprayers on the Coca Fields in South America.
They are still shot at too.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
