During his political campaign in Ayacucho and Cusco, Humala
spoke to hundreds of peasants who grow coca leaves. He said that if he was
elected, he would not allow the presence of foreign military in the programme
against drug traffic and in reference to the American assistance in this matter,
he declared that he needs the financing but not the American officers.
The US supports the Peruvian programme against drug traffic
with Fairchild C-26 airplanes or “spy airplanes”, these airplanes give
important information to the Peruvian Air Force and were donated by the US
