31. Or the infamous "desaparacidos" of Argentine past, when
Edited on Wed Sep-06-06 02:58 PM by coalition_unwilling
Argentina was ruled by military junta. (Not sure of Spanish spelling, but it translates to "disappeareds" in English). Come to think of it, all those Latin American torture regimes learned their trade from the U.S. Army's School of the Americas. A lot of techniques seen at Abu Ghraib and elsewhere have their antecedents in Latin American wars of the '80s.
