The Jamaican soldiers who carried out Operation Garden Parish, had to overcome roadblocks set up by Coke soldiers prepared for the raid. And more than that. “I ﬁred my AK until my ﬁnger was numb,” reads a passage from a Coke gunman’s diary unearthed by Schwartz.
The video, said to have been screened in a joint U.S.-Jamaican operations center in Kingston, has never been released. Its contents are politically dangerous for a Jamaican government still reeling from Tivoli Gardens. (Coke was eventually arrested and convicted in New York; Golding resigned.) And the documents Schwartz acquired suggest that there might have been U.S. operatives on the ground during the raid, which the U.S. denies.
“My belief is that the video could help identify exactly which members of the Jamaican security forces were where, and when,” Schwartz says. “Until the identities of these individuals are made known, and some court or other investigative body compels them to give public testimony, we will not have a final answer to these disturbing and credible allegations.”
Despite a detailed account out about the role of a United States (US) spy plane in the Tivoli Gardens incursion last May, the Jamaican Government is insisting that local law-enforcement personnel had no help from their American counterparts.

Why is the United States that I belong to, violating airspace in any country and spying on them?
It's not surprise that 50 years after independence the majority of Jamaicans say that Jamaica would have been better off had it remained a British colony.
