EXCLUSIVE: Venezuelan leader Nicolás Maduro's right-hand-man publicly exposed American mercenaries' names, photos and coup plan on live TV a month BEFORE failed 'invasion'

Luke Denman, 34, and Airan Berry, 41, were captured in Venezuela for trying to overthrow President Nicolás Maduro in a failed coup this week

On March 28, an episode of President Maduro's weekly low-budget propaganda show publicly exposed the American 'mercenaries'' plan on live TV

The president's right-hand man Diosdado Cabello showed photographs of the coup's leader, Jordan Goudreau, calling him 'the gringo' and 'mercenary'

The Americans went ahead with the ill-fated mission, despite Venezuela airing out the names and photos of Goudreau, Denman and Berry

The presentation came complete with an elaborate organizational chart pinned onto a cork board and with photographs of individuals, cars and apartments

The Americans behind the failed Venezuelan coup went ahead with the ill-fated mission even though the country's ruling regime publicly exposed their plan on live TV more than a month earlier. In footage unearthed by DailyMail.com Venezuelan state television claimed its government had infiltrated the 'mercenaries' and even aired photographs of the coup's US leader, Jordan Goudreau. They also appeared to have the names of the other two Americans captured and paraded on TV this week, ex Green Berets Luke Denman and Airan Berry. The revelation, alongside the apparent lack of funding and adequate equipment for the mission last Sunday, raises more questions as to why the disastrous operation ever went ahead.
