is this Guardian piece from 2+ years ago in which we read
.What one did not hear from any senior member of the Argentine hierarchy was any expression of regret for the church's collaboration and in these crimes. The extent of the church's complicity in the dark deeds was excellently set out by Horacio Verbitsky, one of Argentina's most notable journalists, in his book El Silencio (Silence). He recounts how the Argentine navy with the connivance of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, now the Jesuit archbishop of Buenos Aires, hid from a visiting delegation of the Inter-American Human Rights Commission the dictatorship's political prisoners. Bergoglio was hiding them in nothing less than his holiday home in an island called El Silencio in the River Plate. The most shaming thing for the church is that in such circumstances Bergoglio's name was allowed to go forward in the ballot to chose the successor of John Paul II. What scandal would not have ensued if the first pope ever to be elected from the continent of America had been revealed as an accessory to murder and false imprisonmentMake of it what you will.
UPDATE - I have modified this so that I do not give the impression it was a news story. It was in an opinion column, that is still accessible at the Guardian, which does put it in a somewhat different status. It is not clear that the Argentinian journalist whose work is being cited is accurate in what he reports. And as is pointed out in one of the comments below, the idea of a separate home seems to class with what is publicly known about the man.
that said, I received the link from the story on two different lists, one liberal, one more centrist, which means people are digging, and this is likely to be something that will be around until directly addressed.
I am NOT evaluating it for its accuracy, but since it was and is at the site of a reputable news outlet thought it was worth mentioning.
