Summary:
A documentary on the involvement of the French military in Operation Condor, established in 1975 by the autocratic governments of South America. This supranational criminal organization's mission was the extermination of political opponents both in their own countries and abroad. "[R]eveals French veterans of the wars in Indochina and Algeria provided the inspiration, the training, and some of the intelligence that enables Latin American dictators to torture and kill thousands of their own citizens"--Container.
