Recently, I had an enriching experience participating in the Closing of the School of the Americas (SOA/WHINSEC) Watch and political action activities in Fort Benning, GA. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the brutal killings of six Jesuit Priests and their companions in El Salvador. What is noteworthy is that… many of these military tactics, espionage and methods of torture were learned in our schools, such as at SOA (often times referred to as the School of Assassins), and subsequently handed down and taught to their military personnel back home.
