New Pope.--Dirty War
« on: March 14, 2013, 04:26:09 PM »

Buenos Aires ? As Pope Francis takes his place as the leader of the world?s 1.2 billion Catholics, his participation in Argentina?s US-backed ?Dirty War? is sure to come under increased scrutiny.
From 1976 until 1983, Argentina was governed by a series of US-backed military dictators who ruled with iron fists and crushed the regime?s opponents, many of them students, trade unionists, journalists and leftists. Kidnapping, torture, murder by death squads and disappearances characterized this brutal ?Dirty War,? and many of the leading perpetrators, including two junta leaders and the military dictator Gen. Leopoldo Galtieri, were trained by the United States in kidnapping, torture, assassination and democracy suppression at the School of the Americans in Panama. As many as 30,000 people were killed or disappeared during this horrific period, and many children and babies were stolen from parents imprisoned in concentration camps or murdered by the regime
