US role in El Salvador conflict

The editorial "UN's `Truth Squad'," March 17, demeans the UN's Commission on the Truth report about the atrocities committed in El Salvador.

Now that President Alfredo Cristiani has succeeded in granting amnesty to all participants, he is also indebted to grant amnesty to former Presidents Reagan and Bush, as well as Congress, for their roles in the conflict. They supplied the Salvadoran military with billions of dollars from United States taxpayers and trained soldiers in the US.

The government's participation in the El Salvador conflict is a very black mark in US history. Valfrid G. Hector, Lakewood, Colo.
