Last Monday, Mr. David Mikulec commented on the previous Friday's editorial by John Nelson.
Essentially, he maintained that our government has been sponsoring mass murders for quite some time in Central America via, as he described it, "that fine institution known as The School of the Americas (now known as the Western Hemisphere for Security Cooperation) at Fort Benning, Ga." He obviously is referring to some notorious graduates who later returned to their homeland and demonstrated that skills acquired by U.S. training could be used to undermine the mission of the school. This mission involves assisting leaders and soldiers to best utilize economic and military aid, which has been substantial and vital in preserving U.S. security interests.
As a veteran who has worked with graduates of this school, I assume that Mr. Mikulec's opinion is formed from either mass media information or from field experience. If relying on media-promulgated information, you would not be fully informed. If relying on field experience, he evidently has not had the opportunity to observe the positive aspects and graduates of the school.
