A Very Bad Thing Happened on This Day

An unspeakably evil act which wounded a country and its people, and they are still suffering to this day.

I am referring, of course, to the US sponsored coup in Chile 50 years ago.

At least 3000 people died, which is proportionally 30 times the death toll of September 11, 2001, and that does not count the approximately 40,000 people tortured and imprisoned, all with the approval of the United States in general, and Henry Kissinger in particular.

The Chilean junta engaged in acts of terrorism in the United States pursuing their critics, again with the tacit assent of Henry Kissinger.

Why that stain of the face of humanity is living comfortably on Park Avenue, and not chilling his heels in prison somewhere is beyond me.
