    I knew a couple of people who were around when the CIA ousted Arenz.   Just yell "communist" and presto! you have a democratically-elected government thrown out in a coup.

    Here is the snippet from Wikipedia:

     

    While working in Guatemala, Sister Dianna Ortiz, a Catholic nun from New Mexico, said that she was raped and tortured by members of a death squad until a US supervisor recognized that she was from the US.[14] Roberts challenged facts and assertions in Ortiz's account during a 1996 interview with Ortiz on the TV show "Nightline." Roberts' brother, Tom Boggs, working for the law firm of Patton, Boggs, & Blow, was under contract with the government of Guatemala to promote a more positive image of the dictatorship in Guatemala.[15

      Diana Ortiz's story is true.  I will never listen to Cokie Roberts the same again.
