    Ronald Reagan: Accessory to Genocide
    May 11, 2013

    Exclusive: More than any recent U.S. president, Ronald Reagan has been lavished with honors, including his name attached to Washington’s National Airport. But the conviction of Reagan ’s old ally, ex-Guatemalan dictator Rios Montt, for genocide means “Ronnie” must face history’s judgment as an accessory to the crime, reports Robert Parry.

    Yet, while Guatemalans demonstrate the strength to face a dark chapter of their history, the American people remain mostly oblivious to Reagan’s central role in tens of thousands of political murders across Central America in the 1980s, including some 100,000 dead in Guatemala slaughtered by Rios Montt and other military dictators.

    Indeed, Ronald Reagan – by aiding, abetting, encouraging and covering up widespread human rights crimes in El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua as well as Guatemala – bears greater responsibility for Central America’s horrors than does Rios Montt in his bloody 17-month rule. Reagan supported Guatemala’s brutal repression both before and after Rios Montt held power, as well as during.

    Cheers, Nightgaunt. I’m not very familiar with Rios Montt at all.

    @ chromosome Agreed, I like the effects of his technique.

    Wow, just been reading up on him, a piece of work indeed, and so many atrocities committed for such a short time in power!
    Mates with Pat Robertson, too.

    “President Ríos Montt is a man of great personal integrity and commitment. … I know he wants to improve the quality of life for all Guatemalans and to promote social justice.” – Reagan

    Like Pinochet, another “Friend of Ron”. It’s amazing how much didn’t stick to the Teflon “Acting President”. (That book sums it up pretty well , btw.)
