"President @barackobama visited the @parquedelamemoria in #BuenosAires earlier today with President Mauricio Macri of Argentina, where the two leaders walked alongside this wall engraved with the names and ages of 20,000 victims of Argentina's "dirty war" — plus 10,000 blank spaces for those who have yet to be identified. @barackobama expressed regret for the failure of the U.S. to acknowledge the brutal repression and atrocities that took place during the way, in the 1970s and '80s. "There's been controversy about the policies of the United States early in those dark days," he said at the monument, where he attended a ceremony for the 40th anniversary of the 1976 military coup that began the Argentine dictatorship. @crowleygraph, a @nytimes staff photographer, has been traveling with @barackobama during his trip to Cuba and Argentina.
