School of the Americas Topics

The Ft. Benning, GA, military training center formerly known as the SOA, or School of the Americas, is used to train Latin American soldiers in combat, counterinsurgency and counter-narcotics. Frequently referred to as the "School of the Assassins," the school is now known as WHISC, or the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation. The group School of Americas Watch says the role of U.S.-trained generals in the 2009 Honduras military coup underscores the need for the school’s closure.
