We won't forget the OTHER Sept 11 and our country's involvement
In 1970 Chile elected to power leftist President Salvador Allende. President Nixon, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, and the CIA set about a campaign of destabilization of Chile's economy, and gave support and encouragement to the military uprising and coup d'etat on September 11, 1973. More than 10,000 people were tortured, murdered, or disappeared in the ensuing months and years of military terror. While Chile has returned to parliamentary democracy, justice is still being sought against the torturers and murderers of the dictatorship, including General Pinochet. These people have been granted impunity to prosecution for their crimes in Chile.
