    I would guess it's intended to mean "South America".

It's short for "South America," as shown by a revised version in the book Reagan's Secret War:

A long meeting with Secretary Shultz. We have trouble. Cap [Weinberger] and Bill Casey have views contrary to George's on South America, the Middle East & our arms negotiations. It's so out of hand George sounds like he wants out.
