US Hands Argentina 5,600 Declassified Files From 'Dirty War'

Names of perpetrators and victims are inscribed within the set of hard drives, the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights said.

he United States presented to Argentina its fourth and final installment of the Declassification Process on human rights abuses made during the military dictatorship from 1976 to 1983 on Friday.

The final 5,600 documents were added to a record-breaking, 50,000 page-government file composed through the efforts of 16 U.S. intelligence agencies and delivered over the course of the last seven years.

In 2002, both the Argentine Foreign Ministry and the U.S. fortified a declassification process to share top secret information from the United States Archives to the Argentine Commision on Historical Memory and other human rights organizations and public institutions via the Minister of Justice and Human Rights, German Garavano.

Currently the U.S. is developing a web portal to access the collection of declassified notes written during the seven-year, "Dirty War," when a military dictatorship cracked down on left-wing opponents between 1974 and 1983.

"As the families of victims continue their quests for truth and justice, the declassification of these records helps confront the past with honesty and transparency," the U.S. Department of State said in a statement on Friday.

Names of perpetrators and victims are inscribed within the set of hard drives, Garavano said. The Argentine Minister is hopeful the judicial system will be able to close some 400 pending investigations on the 30,000 disappeared cases which transpired during the dictatorship.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Am I the only one who is wondering why the US government has this information?
