BUENOS AIRES President Barack Obama will honor victims of Argentina's "Dirty War" on Thursday, the 40th anniversary of a military coup that led to a seven-year crackdown against Marxist rebels, labor unions and leftist opponents.
Obama described the 1976-1983 dictatorship, during which the Argentine security forces killed up to 30,000 people, as a "dark period" in Argentina's history. But he has stopped short of apologizing for the United States' early support for the generals.
