    Chile security chief was CIA informer

    Recently declassified documents in the United States show that the former head of the secret police in Chile, Manuel Contreras, was a paid informant for the US intelligence agency, the CIA.
    The report, comprising CIA documents requested by the US Congress, show that contact with Contreras began in 1974 - a year after the military coup that brought General Augusto Pinochet to power.

    A BBC correspondent in Washington, Nick Bryant, says the documents reinforce the view that the US turned a blind eye towards political repression in Chile during the Pinochet era and that the CIA was complicit in many human rights abuses.

    Pinochet's confidant

    As head of the security service, DINA, Contreras became the one of the most feared men in Chile, second only to General Pinochet.

    The general's iron rule was underpinned by the tactics of brutal repression that saw thousands die and thousands more flee into exile. Others disappeared or were tortured.
     
  2. Aside from the article, CIA is a terrorist organization only to those it harms. Just like the al-qa ida is only a terrorist organization to the ones they harm. for the rest of the people, they are either a bunch of uninteresting people, or freedom fighters!

  3. Explain me the logic: the chilians were imposed a dictature with the help of CIA and US gov. is fainting to protest against this dictature and judge Pinochet 30 years later for crime against Humanity ? Isn't that a big tragic farce ? Are we living a virtual reality forged by medias controlled by gov ? Why do they need to favor a dictature instead of a democracy huh ?

    And what about using Real Terrorists ? If they finance and use terrorists no wonder why they are so numerous ... and so active today. Do they need to maintain and enhance global terror to control the people ?

    "FBI, Directorate of National Intelligence (DINA), January 21, 1982: This report provides a summary of information taken from prison letters written by Michael Townley, the DINA agent responsible for the assassination of Orlando Letelier. This report includes information not directly provided to the FBI by Townley, but drawn from analysis of his correspondence with his DINA handler: details about meetings between Chilean President Pinochet and Italian terrorists and spies, codenames and activities of DINA personnel, collaboration between DINA and anti-Castro Cubans; the creation of a fake terrorist organization to take the blame for a DINA kidnapping in Argentina; DINA involvement in relations between Great Britain and Northern Ireland; and Townley's fear that information about kidnappings and assassinations of prominent critics of Pinochet would somehow be traced back to him.

  4. Well you are answering your own question.. of course they need to keep people scared to control them! How else could you control someone? Make em scared of what you dont want them to do, and maybe set up some kind of ideal in the other direction for them to follow.

    Of course this is a big farce, but do you think this is unique? Reality is really really relative man, better stick to what you know yourself.

    The Pentagon Plan to Provoke Terrorist Attacks
    http://www.counterpunch.org/floyd1101.html

    This column stands foursquare with the Honorable Donald H. Rumsfeld, U.S. Secretary of Defense, when he warns that there will be more terrorist attacks against the American people and civilization at large. We know, as does the Honorable Donald H. Rumsfeld, U.S. Secretary of Defense, that this statement is an incontrovertible fact, a matter of scientific certainty. And how can we and the Honorable Donald H. Rumsfeld, U.S. Secretary of Defense, be so sure that there will be more terrorist attacks against the American people and civilization at large?

    Because these attacks will be instigated at the order of the Honorable Donald H. Rumsfeld, U.S. Secretary of Defense.

    This astonishing admission was buried deep in a story which was itself submerged by mounds of gray newsprint and glossy underwear ads in last Sunday's Los Angeles Times. There--in an article by military analyst William Arkin, detailing the vast expansion of the secret armies being massed by the former Nixon bureaucrat now lording it over the Pentagon--came the revelation of Rumsfeld's plan to create "a super-Intelligence Support Activity" that will "bring together CIA and military covert action, information warfare, intelligence, and cover and deception."

    According to a classified document prepared for Rumsfeld by his Defense Science Board, the new organization--the "Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group (P2OG)"--will carry out secret missions designed to "stimulate reactions" among terrorist groups, provoking them into committing violent acts which would then expose them to "counterattack" by U.S. forces.

    In other words--and let's say this plainly, clearly and soberly, so that no one can mistake the intention of Rumsfeld's plan--the United States government is planning to use "cover and deception" and secret military operations to provoke murderous terrorist attacks on innocent people. Let's say it again: Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush and the other members of the unelected regime in Washington plan to deliberately foment the murder of innocent people--your family, your friends, your lovers, you--in order to further their geopolitical ambitions.
