Amerika's School of the Assassins
Founded: July 1963 as
'The School of the Americas'
Training Leaders from around the world in weapons, tactics
and state-control over diverse societies for 53 years
Four months before Jack Kennedy was assassinated, USI opened their “school”to train future barbarian leaders beginning with the officers from Central and South American nations that the US has been making war on for roughly 200 years, as part of the Monroe Doctrine & American-Exceptionalism.
“This report provides background information on the School of the Americas, a U.S. Army training facility, largely for Spanish-speaking Latin American cadets and officers, located at Fort Benning, Georgia. It reviews the history and background of the School, discusses its missions, and examines several controversies that have developed in recent years. These include concerns about the School's graduates who have been implicated in human rights violations and the adequacy of human rights training at the School. Questions over continued funding of the School of the Americas were raised in Congress in 1993 and will likely be raised again in 1994. On September 30, 1993, the House rejected an amendment to the FY1994 Defense Appropriations measure (P.L. 103-139, H.R. 3116) that would have cut $2.9 million from the Army's operation and maintenance account, an amount equal to the amount in the account dedicated to running the School. In 1994, further legislative attempts to close the School may again target the Army's operation and maintenance account as well as another funding source for the School -- International Military Education and Training (IMET) program funds -- provided through foreign assistance legislation.
The School of the Americas was originally established in 1946 in the U.S.- controlled Panama Canal Zone as the Latin American Center--Ground Division. In July 1963, the school acquired its current name, and Spanish became its official language. On September 21, 1984, the school suspended operations in compliance with the terms of the 1977 Panama Canal Treaty. In December 1984,
1 All background facts and data were taken from materials provided by the Department of the Army, Public Affairs, and the United States Army School of the Americas. The staff and faculty figure represents total as of March 3, 1994.””
k What makes this important is that today a court has again refused to make public the list of the school's graduates, because of what might be learned about the extent of America's role in training the Assassin's of the world today, not just in the America's.
“A US court of appeals ruled that the Pentagon does not have to disclose the names of people who were trained in counterinsurgency at the School of the Americas, an institution that lists some of Latin America’s worst dictators among its graduates.
In a divided 2-1 decision, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco overturned a 2014 decision by the Northern District Court of California, which said the US public had a right to know who the US Army trains at a facility located at Fort Benning near Columbus, Georgia. The DoD appealed the decision...”
“Originally called School of the Americas, it was founded in 1946 and trained Latin American troops in anti-communist counterinsurgency. The school was rebranded as the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC) in the early 2000s. Critics say people involved in torture, extrajudicial killings, and other violations of human rights got their training at the facility funded by US taxpayer money, with some labeling it School of Assassins.”
