The 40th Anniversary of Chile's 9/11 (Jacob G. Hornberger)
Wednesday September 11th, 2013
Tomorrow, September 11, marks the 40th anniversary of the 1973 military coup in Chile that ousted the democratically elected socialist-communist Salvador Allende from power and installed the brutal right-wing military dictator General Augusto Pinochet. It was a coup that was not only supported by the U.S. national-security state but also one that the CIA actually helped to foment. Even worse, there is strong evidence indicating that the national-security state actually played a role during the coup in the execution of two young Americans, Charles Horman and Frank Terrugi.
