What Happened?: Evaluating the Records of Colombian WHINSEC Graduates PDF Print E-mail

By John Lindsay-Poland, Fellowship of Reconciliation

What Happened?In June 2012, Ambassador John Maisto asked the commander of the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC), until 2001 known as the School of the Americas, whether any graduates of WHINSEC have been accused of human rights violations. The school’s commander, Col. Glen Huber, said there have been none that they knew of.

There is extensive information available on Colombian military officers and Army human rights violations, thus providing an important test case for
the WHINSEC commander’s claim.  Who were these 29 Colombian military instructors and command students, and what were their human rights records before and after spending a year at WHINSEC?
