School Of AssassinsStreaming Video - 2005
This Academy Award-winning documentary looks at a United States institution that trains Latin American military officers. Few Americans have heard of the school-the U.S. Army School of the Americas-nor are they aware that some of its graduates have gone on to become dictators and violators of human rights in their home countries. The program contrasts the mission statement of the school with the actions of its graduates, among whom are former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega, numerous other strongmen throughout Central and South America, and a large number of lower-level officers who have been charged with the murders of thousands of civilians, including North American missionaries.
