Surely I'm not the only one who remembers that Bishop Robert Morlino served on the board of the School for the Americas, now called the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation.
When he was criticized for his role on the board, he defended the school, in one case in a 2007 State Journal article.
A report published by the Brigham Young University of Public Law documented that people trained there committed political killings and massacres of entire communities. It called for the closure of the school over human rights atrocities and for ignoring U.S. and international law.
In light of that history, I find the bishop's condemnation of the sisters' supposed misbehavior ironic, at best.
