Even with the continued SOA funding, its days may be numbered

Larry E of Lotus reminds us that the School of the Americas (or Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation as it's called these days) is not as well-attended as it once was:
Some Latin American leaders are souring on the school: Venezuela, Argentina, and Uruguay have dropped out and Bolivia says it will be doing so gradually. Last month Costa Rica, which has no army, announced it would no longer send any of its police for training there.
Hopefully its days are truly numbered.
