OPERATION CONDOR FILES VANISH

Paraguayan lawyer and teacher Martín Almada, who first discovered the so-called “Archives of Terror” in Paraguay in 1992, says a number of the documents have disappeared. The documents shed light on Operation Condor, an intelligence operation carried out jointly by 1970s dictatorships of Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay and Bolivia. Almada said one of the missing documents is a CIA document, “How To Keep Torture Victims Alive.”

Almada traveled to Washington, D.C., in May to ask the United States to declassify documents related to torture in Paraguay. Operation Condor cases are under investigation in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Paraguay.
