COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) Democratic presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich said Sunday the thinking that went into producing an Army school blamed for human rights abuses in Latin America was the same that led the U.S. to war in Iraq and could cause it to raid Iran.
Kucinich was speaking at the 18th annual protest of the school at Fort Benning that trains Latin American soldiers, police and government officials. One of his first acts as president if elected would be to close the school, he said.
"The type of thinking that produced this school is the same type of thinking that produced the war in Iraq and is producing a war against Iran," Kucinich said. The Ohio congressman and former Cleveland mayor was addressing a crowd estimated by local police to number roughly 10,000.
The Army's School of the Americas moved to Fort Benning from Panama in 1984 and was replaced in 2001 by the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, under the Defense Department.

And to think Kucinich wants to be Commander-in-chief of our Armed Forces...what a putz.
Can we close the congress? Look at all the destructive crap that comes out of there.
Now I want a School Of The Americas sweatshirt.
SOA protest is personal for Kucinich
Presidential candidate said closing school would be doing ‘God’s work’

Dhimmocrats: please, please, PLEASE nominate this ahem...”man”.
Hope that Boy was’nt sucking up any Alabama air.
This nut was to close to Home..
I was deployed to Central Asia in 2003. Our mobe training took place at Fort Benning. That’s where paratroopers and special ops train and these guys would quickly eat these protesters for breakfast if their chain of command would let them.
May the rocks fall on Kookcinich and his traitorous comrades! What a bunch of worthless b@stards!
I have a far greater chance of being president than that “wash his hair monthly” booger.
Virtually every state has some ultra left winger, from the ultra most liberal voting block in a given state. He wants to be the MOST annoying of them all.
Time for Ohio’s voters to impeach Kookcinich.
If Kookyspinich weren’t Kookyspinich, he’d be a fruitcake.
Wait a minute, he IS a fruitcake.
Putz is a good description. Twerp, ding dong, schmuck. The descriptive words list in endless.
Isn’t anybody embarrassed by this pathetic POS?
How does he even get taken seriously by anyone? Why isn’t he just simply laughed out of the race and public life.
This man is absolutely ludicrous. Cranks like him are only worthy of being ignored, not having a national platform.
On the plus side, he does bring some unintentional laughs to the Presidential election.
The idea behind the School of the Americas was simply to train Latino military types in humane and effective procedures in an environment that would also pass along to them democratic ideals and a respect for the rule of law.
Again, Kucinich hates the rule of law and he loves raw violence and torture. He'll oppose all efforts by anyone to eradicate systems based on barbarism.
That was such a great caption, try your hand at this one
Kucinich’s god is Satan. Dennis prays to become the beast that crawls out of the pit.
