Declassified: Released documents reveal the United States and Brazil's crucial role in 1973 Chilean coup


www.blacklistednews.com

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."


I'm too young to actually remember this, but I've read a little about this coup. It had been speculated for quite a long time that the US government was involved, and now there is new evidence to support that. Interesting stuff, makes me wonder just how much we're involved in the affairs of other countries.

Wow... that's nice...

But you know, many, many people here believe that to be true since... well, since it took place.



The media has done a SUPREME job brainwashing everyone to slavery and all in the good hands of a handful of families, and the History of GLOBO TV and RECORD TV and SBT are shadowed by a mysterious and lawless past .... but those immune to that BS, and who are awaken and know what makes the system "tick", and can see pass the needs of having it "officially released" (spoon fed?)... we know...


Peace, and good look !

I know it was a sad, sordid state of affairs, and I do believe the US had a hand in it. If anyone out there doesn't feel like reading about it, there's a great (and extremely depressing) movie on the subject called Missing that I recommend watching. Thanks and stars for the replies and insight, Sator.

Well, here in Chile is a well known fact. We know the rigth wing newspapper "El Mercurio" was financed by the CIA at the time which saved the newspapper from bankrupcy. We know about some sums of money used to execute suply shortages, to destabilize the economy, that particular goberment and excecute not one but two cup d'etat.

Thing is, as far as I know, before 9/11 1973(yes it has happened before) there was another, minor cup, sort of "lest see if this work out and how can we improve uppon" thing.

Months later, the same guy who helped stop the previous attempt(Pinochet) executed a cup d'etat.

don't get me worng, Allende was wrong with his ideal and the way he wanted the country to be -a socialist one- but he was the elected president at the time, for that only he has the respect he deserves.

I know a lot about that period of time in my country, things only few people know... thanks to my parents and long long hours of talks...

Great info, thanks and star for sharing that. It's always more interesting to hear from the people who have actually experienced these things, rather than to read or watch a movie about it. Thanks again.
