Fujimori knew of the death squad, says unit chief

Suspected Peru Death Squad Chief Blames Fujimori: "Martin Rivas told journalist Umberto Jara in the interview that Fujimori had decided to follow a U.S. 'manual of nonconventional warfare' to combat leftist rebels and that was what led him to create the death squad. The interview was aired on the eve of the publication of Jara's book about the Grupo Colina squad, 'Eye for an Eye.' Jara worked for media organizations closely linked to Fujimori during the former president's 1990-2000 government." Reuters Fujimori wants to have it both ways, taking credit for masterfully directing the counterinsurgency campaign and liberating the Japanese Embassy hostages while the death squad and dirty war escaped his attention to detail.
