NPR's Vicky O'Hara reports from Washington that newly declassified U.S. government documents directly implicate Argentina's former president Leopoldo Galtieri in a campaign of torture and murder during his country's so-called "dirty war" of the 1970s and 1980s. The documents show the Argentine junta believed its murderous campaign had the blessing of the U.S. government.
