Francis to meet Argentina's president

The Vatican has sought to quell controversy over Pope Francis' conduct during Argentina's so-called Dirty War, amid accusations that he could have done more to protect two Jesuit priests who were kidnapped.

A meeting on the pope's agenda on Monday may be another sign that he's trying to put the past behind him. Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is scheduled to meet with Francis in the afternoon.

    'Iraq war could end up costing us 6 trillion dollars" and thats a lower official estimate for obvious reasons.
    According to COST OF total impact on US so far for the two wars is 14 plus trillion dollars.
    9$ 8 trillion for Iraq and $ 6 trillion for Afghan).
