Cardinal Bergoglio 'completely innocent' of 'dirty war' accusations, says top Argentine judge

Catholic World News - March 18, 2013

The president of Argentina’s highest court has said that Pope Francis is “completely innocent” of any charges of having collaborated with the military dictatorship that ruled his country during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

While some people argue that then-Cardinal Bergoglio might have been more outspoken, “there is no concrete accusation” against him, said Ricardi Lorenzetti.

    Sounds just like the smear campaign against Pope Pius XII and Nazi Germany. The long knives are out for our new Pope. May God protect him!
