    I have never subscribed to the version of recent history that blames our human rights abuses on US interfering. Our own regimes murdered and tortured in their own name.

    Well done Brazil for setting up this Truth Committee. The best way to avoid mistakes of the past is to properly understand history.

    Interesting article, according to our Arg bloggers/trolls operation condor was the US's doing.
    At least one SA country is willing to admit the truth, though I don't doubt Arg will continue to blame the imaginary enemy.
    Further proof of a well instigated indoctrination scheme.

    Shame on you Chile for being involved in this “dirty” situation. Shame also on Uruguay. What other crimes have you committed? Shame, most especially, on Brazil. But this should enable the world to re-evaluate you. Squeaky image has gone. Let's see all the trials. Not just the scapegoats. Brazil is obviously not to be trusted. As for argieland? No surprise there. If there's anything belligerent, bestial, corrupt, criminal, disgusting, immature, mendacious, rapacious, thieving, vicious going on, argieland will be part of it. Good to see that the U.S. has been exonerated by Brazilians. Let's remember this for the next argie troll that starts rebbiting about “Operation Condor”. Right down at the bottom line, argieland was partly responsible. As we might expect. Something else for which argieland needs to be brought to justice.

    I think all our countries have episodes in our histories that we can be heartily ashamed of. The difference has been that some countries - including the UK - have held up their hands and admitted it. Others squirm and blame everyone else.

    And nothing is black and white. History can be painted many ways but it is true that we should look at it with an open mind and learn from it if we want a better future.

    History as we know it,
    Purely depends on who is telling , writing the story.

    We all know that what is written down and thus archived is nothing but a mere fraction of what actually happened or what went on.

    To be honest and move ahead with a clean sheet, should perhaps be what these countries should be thinking abt,

    After all, are we suggesting that some have even more unknown, untold atrocities yet to come to light,
    The human race has a lot to answer to and for,
    Surely a clean sheet is worth trying for..
    Just a clean thought .

    Good for Brazil, following the lead of Kirchnerist Argentina in facing up to its past. Lets hope the junta leaders that are still alive end up in jail

    6@ Smarts words.....History is not the truth ever.....This “history” or “fairy tail” told about the human rights is seen just from one side....the left, wich have done a very good job laiying about what really happened in our countries in the 70's & 80's....
    Why it´s too rejectable a borderless goverment organization created to fight a borderless terrorist organization that attacked their institutional order with the openly declared mission to broke down the currently legal system choosen by the population of that countries by democratic ways......
    In other words, I can do what I want against the other if and only if I´m leftist terrorist ruled by PC members with the Castro Bros & the che Guevada leading from La Habana....but you can´t do anything to protect the order and peace of your people under the constitution....
    If there weren´t those extremist that were trying to broke the democratic order in those countries the “Plan Condor” wouldn´t be needed, it was a response to an agression from violentist groups that now are trying to show themselves as little lambs instead the real wolf they are......
    The self defense is a legal way to supress the external atacks....
