Guatemala will Open Files on CIA-Funded Genocide

It's about time. Newly elected president of Guatemala, Alvaro Colom, will open the army's files on the 36 years of CIA-funded genocide in Guatemala. The period began in 1954 with a CIA orchestrated coup that toppled the democratically elected president in order to further U.S. business interests. The CIA trained and installed a series of brutal dictators who were responsible for a quarter million deaths during the 36 years. The CIA also supplied thousands of names of educators and students for the dictators to eliminate.
