Comparing the work of La Comisión to INDEC statistics is poor taste."steveinbsas" said:If I had cited the numbers from either if these websites would you consider that also to be in poor taste? The numbers may vary from source to source, but the fact that so many deaths occurred at the hands of the military and that there has been little justice for these crimes is the real issue.
The commission only publicized cases of which they had proof. It didn't deny that there weren't any other desaparecidos, just that they couldn't prove it. I believe the state should help these people in search of justice. But that's another story.If there were indeed far more than the "official" 8900 dead, the "report of a trustworthy commission" would do little to further the cause of justice for the rest of the (alleged) victims would it?
