Tim Shorrock: Key U.S. documents on Gwangju and the Rise of Chun

 

This was my initial post for the online database of the 4,000 declassified US government documents

obtained under FOIA on the US role in the Gwangju Uprising of 1980. 

The list includes many of the key documents first reported in my initial 1996 stories on the US role

in South Korea in 1979 and 1980.

These were obtained between 1996 and 2006, when only a few of my original documents were fully

declassified. Thanks to the National Security Archive for its help on those.

*I have not reviewed all the documents yet, but I will. So far I feel so angry

not because of the injustice put on people of Kwangju but Korean dependency

on U.S.A. It is hardly a sovereign nation. What a shame!
