Tape 1

In the car ride to Loyola from the airport, Ellacuría reflects on El Salvador’s current president, José Napoleon Duarte. He explains that the president is disillusioned because he believes he has control over the country when, according to Ellacuría, it is the Army and U.S. government who call the shots. Discussion soon turns to the release of President Duarte’s kidnapped daughter Ines and the upper hand enjoyed by the Salvadoran military.
