Day of the barbarians

September 11 is not only the anniversary of the attacks against New York and Washington. It is the anniversary of the 1973 military coup against the democratically elected socialist government of Chile. The overthrow of President Salvador Allende brought to power the barbaric military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. The Nixon-Kissinger administration was openly hostile to Allende and worked to undermine his government even before it took office in 1970. Washington wanted a coup against Allende all along, but whether it played a direct role in the events of September 11 remains a controversial issue.
