"SOA has trained over 64,000 Latin American soldiers in counterinsurgency techniques, sniper training, commando and psychological warfare, military intelligence and interrogation tactics. Hundreds of thousands of Latin Americans have been tortured, raped, assassinated, “disappeared,” massacred, and forced into refugee status by those trained at the School of Assassins." www.soa.org.

@Sandy you are right, most people don't know- others don't want to know it is even more reason why those that do know even a little must spread the word.

School of the Americas is a facility for training police and military members of Latin American countries to repress movements for justice and democracy, including "disappearing" and torturing people. It MUST be closed.

Because the U.S. needs to be about peace and not war. One day I hope the school of americas is a Peace Institute.
