At the time I used the pseudonym Juan Montalvo, in order to protect my family back in Argentina from possible military reprisals.President Barak Obama's recent decision to unseal U.S. files on Argentina's "Dirty War" is particularly valuable to us, since it will confirm our denunciations of the abuses by the Argentine military directed against the country's population. For many years, human rights activists both in Argentina and in the United States have been demanding access to classified U.S. records about the war in Argentina, which lasted from 1976 to 1983 . Obama's decision, announced at the same time as the 40th anniversary of the military coup, will mean that the unsealed U.S. files will help determine the role of several U.S. officials in supporting the Argentine military. This includes, notably, the former U.S. secretary of state, Henry Kissinger. Cesar Chelala is a co-winner of an Overseas Press Club of America award and of two national journalism awards from Argentina.
