Venezuela's VP: Getting technical on "forced disappearances"

By Francisco Toro | Caracas Chronicles

02.10.05 | Think Pinochet and Videla invented the "desaparición forzosa"? Think again.

José Vicente Rangel wants us to believe that Rómulo Betancourt invented the "forced disappearance." Not to get too pedantic about this, but isn't it well known that Pérez Jiménez disappeared people too? Adecos and communists and copeyanos together? Why doesn't J.V.R. want to inquire into those deaths?

My guess: there's no political gain to be made from pointing out that once Adecos and Commies made common cause against dictatorship and to establish democracy. The sooner that can be swept under the historical rug, the better.
