I think Joe Straley introduced me to the School of the America's role in overthrowing Central American governments and spreading terror across Latin America.
A post on NC Blue today says local Congressman David Price has put his name to a bill that would shut down the Georgia-based school, which critics say has trained tens of thousands of Latin American soldiers in counter-insurgency tactics they later went on to use against their own people.

"Thank you, David Price"
"I would like to thank Rep. Price for his support for closing down
the School of the Americas and his co-sponsorship of HR 1707,
legislation that would suspend operations at the School of the
Americas, renamed WHINSEC, and investigate the history of human rights
abuses and failed policies of the institution."
"Of the 125 co-sponsors of this bill, Rep. Price is the ONLY NC member of congress to put their name on the line."
