Top State Department official Richard Nuccio resigned this week
in protest at the Clinton Administration’s "inability or
unwillingness" to curb what he branded mutinous elements
within the CIA.

Nuccio, who worked in the Latin American bureau of the State
Department, had his security clearance pulled by the CIA after
he privately informed then Representative Robert Torricelli about
the role of the CIA in the death of Commandante Everardo, the
highest ranking Mayan in the Guatemalan guerrilla movement.
Everardo was married to American lawyer Jennifer Harbury.

Today, we’ll hear excerpts from a press conference yesterday in
Washington DC with Richard Nuccio and his supporters.

TAPE: RICHARD NUCCIO, formerly a Latin America advisor in
the State Department and now a staff member with Sen. Robert
Torricelli of New Jersey.
