Vatican City, March 15 - Pope Francis, while still
a Jesuit priest in his home city of Buenos Aires, did much to
protect the people during Argentina's 'Dirty War' in the late
1970s, Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said on
Friday.
"And once he became Archbishop of Buenos Aires, he asked
for forgiveness for not doing enough during the dictatorship,"
Lombardi said.
Articles critical of the pope's alleged inaction during his
home country's dictatorship years appeared Thursday in papers
ranging from the New York Times to Spain's El Mundo and even
Argentina's Pagina 12.
"There has never been a credible accusation against him,"
said Lombardi.
"Attacks from certain Argentine papers (against the pope)
are from an anticlerical left...and should be categorically
rejected," he said.
