Good riddence: Emilio Massera obit in Economist

The Economist magazine has an obituary for Emilio Massera. I'd never heard of him before, but apparently, he was the admiral of the "dirty war" during Argentinia's military dictatorship. We can thank him for converting "disappeared" to a transitive verb. This obituary brings up one question: what was the role of the Vatican (bank) in this immense crime?

Update: The link to the Vatican Bank was through a secret society, "Propaganda Due".
