Publisher's Summary

Director of the National Security Archive's Chile Documentation Project Peter Kornbluh and former CIA agent Jack Devine talk about Pinochet's Chile on this edition of Fresh Air. Peter Kornbluh led the campaign to declassify official documents of the secret history of the U.S. government support for the Pinochet dictatorship. That information has now been collected in the new book, The Pinochet File: A Declassified Dossier on Atrocity and Accountability. The book chronicles twenty years of policy in Chile from 1970 to 1990. This September 11th marks the 30th anniversary of the bloody coup that overthrew President Salvador Allende and led to the military dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet. Former CIA agent Jack Devine was stationed in Chile during the coup as part of the agency's Chile task force. He is now a crisis management consultant in New York with the firm The Arkin Group.
