Two years before the coup that toppled the leftist leader of Chile, President Richard Nixon and Brazilian President Emilio Medici discussed coordinated intervention in that nation and Cuba, according to a newly declassified document.
The formerly Top Secret account of a Dec. 9, 1971, White House Oval Office meeting spells out a desire by the U.S. and Brazilian presidents to foment the overthrow of leftist governments, especially those of Chile's Salvador Allende and Cuba's Fidel Castro.
Declassified in July, the memo is now part of the official history of U.S. foreign policy in a State Department series called "Foreign Relations of The United States."
