After the last parlamentary commission report, shouldn't this article be updated to include the (now accepted) official explanation that it was a bomb that brought the plane down?
A link to the Irangate page seems logical considering that the most probable explanation for the bombing was to eliminate the Defense Minister (travelling on the same plane) after he just announced he had very important revelations to make (in 1980). Will it seem too much "conspiration theory"?
I see no problem, as long as you can link it to some fairly reputable source. David Cannon 12:09, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)
In recent news, one former bodyguard has come forward and claimed that there was a payment made for sabotaging the plane which resulted in the Prime Minister's death. In Portuguese law, after 25 years have passed and no one has been found guilty of the crime in question, the person involved can come forward without any repercussions. On 8 April 2012, José Esteves received from Fernando Farinha Simões an 18 page confession which asserts that the CIA and Oliver North were behind the plot to place the bomb on the plane. Because Adelino Amaro da Costa was about to denounce the covert CIA drug and gun trade that was secretly passing through Portugal he was targeted and so was Sá Carneiro because he was anti-US. The covert operation lasted for years with Oliver North's involvement.<ref>http://www.scribd.com/doc/90035961/How-they-killed-Mr-Sa-Carneiro-and-Mr-Amaro-da-Costa</ref>
This is too contentious to stand without good citations. A scribd page isn't enough really. Sophie means wisdom (talk) 20:28, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
