On March 22, Congressman Robert Torricelli (D-NJ) made public a letter he sent to President Bill Clinton accusing a Guatemalan military intelligence officer of having ordered the killings of an American citizen in 1990 and a Guatemalan guerilla leader in 1992. The officer, Col. Julio Alpirez, was on the payroll of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) at the time of the killings, said Torricelli.
