95. You are so lost.
"I would say you have no argument to make. I'm not trying to argue that SOA grads didn't commit crimes.

Yeah, right. The SOA is part of the professional army, but now you say it DID commit crimes? Were these crimes (that you now admit are true) part of that professionalism?"

Again, show me where I argued that SOA GRADS did not commit crimes. I will say that the SOA did not commit any crimes, or at least I've seen ZERO evidence to that effect. Are police academies responsible for police brutality? Are driving schools responsible for drunk drivers? Computer Learning Center for hackers? Shop class for somebody who builds a pipe bomb?

Here, let's just boil it down to this:

"No one cares about the people who posted a catalog. The issue of concern here is that SOA teaches how to torture and deny people's rights.

If someone is complaining about the individual that posted the catalog, that doesn't mean you should exploit their mistake in order to avoid discussing the real issue, which is how the SOA trains foreign soldiers to commit atrocities"

We'll move past the fact that I have no idea what you mean by the first half of your last para. Show me exactly when where and how the SOA trains foreign soldiers to commit atrocities. You're going to have to better than a dozen lines from a 1980's training manual. I gave you the link to the courses offered at SOA. Find the one about Death Squad Leadership, or Mass Grave Concealment.
