Reagan's Jeane Kirkpatrick, said they were not "just nuns", but political activists.

Trying to find the source again quickly. But: Roberto D'Aubuisson, who was in charge of the death squads, went to the School of the Americas - which is at Fort Benning. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscar_Romero
The next year, America's School was involved in the El Mazote massacre http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Mozote_massacre
