Ronald Reagan's Bloody Apocalypto
For many Americans who have watched Mel Gibson's Apocalypto, the pain of the fictional ancient Mayas in the movie is more real than the actual suffering of real Mayas who were tortured and slaughtered in the 1980s with the help of then-President Ronald Reagan. When a right-wing military dictator was waging this modern genocide against Mayas, Reagan was busy covering the killers' tracks and giving them more efficient weapons to carry out the task. But that history now is less known to Americans than Gibson's faux history of 500 years ago. December 17, 2006
