There was no other alternative [to the disappearances]… [Military leaders] were in agreement that it was the price that must be paid to win the war against subversion and we needed that it not be obvious so society would not realize it. It was necessary to eliminate a large group of people who could not be brought to justice nor [openly] shot either.
I want to clarify that Argentine citizens are not victims of the repression. The repression is against a minority that we do not consider Argentine.
As many people as necessary must die in Argentina so that the country will again be secure.
