Argentina/US: Intelligence Files Move

Argentina has welcomed a vote by the US House of Representatives to force intelligence agencies to reveal information they may have on dictatorship-era human rights abuses. It's early days, but:
If approved by the US Senate and President Barack Obama, the measure could provide key evidence for human rights trials under way in Argentina and possibly help some 400 families find children who were stolen at birth from women who were kidnapped and killed by the dictatorship, according to Argentina's ambassador to the U.S., Hector Timerman.
(Ambassador Timerman, of course, has a personal interest in such matters).
