Efrain Rios Montt
By: Danielle Bourgeois
A Letter From the President
It gives me great hope for the future of the middle east to see such brave and bold efforts by your administration and you in creating a liberated and democratic society for the Guatemalan people. Contrary to what others may perceive as brutal and unjust, I recognize the tremendous need and appropriateness of your recent actions among the people and villages within your communities. Your country is confronting a brutal challenge from guerrillas armed and supported by others outside Guatemala. I know that you are a man of great personal integrity and commitment; my government and I assure you that the United States is committed to supporting your efforts to restore democracy and to address the root causes of this violent insurgency. I know your intentions are to improve the quality of life for all Guatemalans and to promote social justice. My administration will do all it can to support your progressive efforts.
