Last year, partly as a result of the campaign run by SOA Watch, several US congressmen tried
to shut the school down. They were defeated by 10 votes. Instead, the House of
Representatives voted to close it and then immediately reopen it under a different name. So,
just as Windscale turned into Sellafield in the hope of parrying public memory, the School of the
Americas washed its hands of the past by renaming itself Whisc.
