"Jaysit, do you honestly expect me to believe that anyone of the Democrats or Liberals even cared?"
Well, if you examine the Congressional record, you will see that liberal democrats like Pat Schroeder and Pat Moynihan among others were on full attack about US involvement in Central American despotic regimes, Southern AFrican despotic regimes AND Iraq. Liberal Dems were at the forefront of those calling for investigations into CIA
involvement in El Salvador and Guatemala. The GOP and the blue dog dems were all fair and square behind Reagan and "the business as usual" dictum.
"Liberal" news magazines like The Nation were calling for investigations. As were liberal human rights organizations. As were liberal college campus organizations and academia. I don't know where you were in the 80s but I was in college and there was a whole political movement against US involvement in murderous dictatorial regimes worldwide. Unfortunately, this movement had virtually no participation by the American right.
Catholic Charities does a lot of good work (and they are quite definitely one of the best humanitarian religious organizations worldwide), but their focus has always been more palliative, rather than reactionary - unless it involves one of their own, as it did in El Salvador where 5 American nuns were brutally tortured and murdered.
