School of Assassins
AKA “School of the Americas”
Over 50,000 Latin American
For decades, the US trained tens of thousands of Latin American troops in “counterinsurgency.”
It was called the “School of the Americas.” It was really a school for assassins and terrorists, including generals and dictators.
Graduates of this program have been implicated in countless acts of mayhem against civilians throughout the region with literally hundreds of thousands killed.
The Catholic Church, normally a supporter of repression in Latin America, took exception when these thugs started killing their priests and nuns in large numbers.
Thus this film was made.
