    Not before time and I hope there are a few more files sitting on Sr. Rapoport’s desk yet. Hopefully there is a file marked ‘Patricio Dowling.’ Or has he already previously been dealt with?

    It’s good to see you have confidence in Argentina’s prosecution office.

    Time to pay for officers who, in front of an enemy, turned against the young recruits they were entrusted with.

    Nothing surprising though, as many Argentine officers were at the time more familiar with kidnapping and torturing unarmed civils than fighting an army in a real war. Hoping for conviction and stiff sentences.
