"Only 66 of these children have been found.
"The armed forces were responsible for the genocide of over 30,000 people during the reign of terror they called the Dirty War.

Notorious Argentinian Army Generals Roberto Viola and Leopoldo Galtieri were graduates of the US army School Of the Americas.
Argentina's Army Intelligence Battalion 601 was at the centre of the generals' fascist repression.
It "engaged in drug and arms trafficking, extortion, and money laundering.
"One of the Battalion's commanders, General Carlos Suarez Mason, head of the First Army Corps, ran an extortion/kidnapping ring that abducted businessmen and bankers.
"Suarez Mason was also a partner with major cocaine traffickers in the Bolivian army who overthrew their government in 1980 with the Argentine military's help.
"The Argentines received a portion of the drug profits from the Bolivian generals.
"The money was used for military operations in Central America.
"For this purpose, Battalion 601 set up a special intelligence unit, the Extraterritorial Task Force (GTE) in 1978 in Florida.
"Authorized by the CIA, the GTE helped train the Nicaraguan Contras for the U.S. and carried out drug and arms trafficking as well as money laundering." (Asad Ismi: Cry for Argentina)
