The Vatican said Wednesday it is well on the way to opening its archives on Argentina's "Dirty War," which could bring new evidence to light on the fate of missing victims.The archives contain reports by the Vatican's ambassadors to Buenos Aires on the stances taken by Argentine bishops in the "dirty war," as well as political and legal documents and references to the disappeared.Defenders of Pope Francis, formerly Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, insist he was among those Catholic clergy who quietly resisted the brutal regime, which tortured and killed scores of priests, nuns and others.Two Catholic priests and a layman murdered during the regime in 1976 are being considered for sainthood under a process launched by Bergoglio when he was the archbishop of Buenos Aires.
