One man acted as the organizer of the attack, stating that this was accomplished by a group of the defectors of the Venezuelan army and others. In an exclusive interview with CNN, he talked about how they were preparing for the attack, and provided cell videos of their drones, explosives, and practiced flights to Columbia's rural lands.

"They wanted to get information and then we asked for an answer. Then they just left their notes and they never came again."
The US State Department spokesman refused to comment on alleged meetings, but said: "Our the policy is to support the peaceful transition in Venezuela. "CNN did not find evidence that the meeting was taking place
