More on Pinochet and US connivance in dictatorship

A Guardian article looks at some recently declassified documents indicating Nixon government connivance with the coup that destroyed Chilean democracy in 1973. Nothing ground-breaking, but a little extra reading for September 11.

Good luck; the sooner Kissinger is put behind bars, the better.
