The EyeOpener- Chile-Contra: The CIA’s Latest Latin American Scandal

BFP VideoBring up the issue of US interference in Latin America, and among that section of the public that does not greet the topic with blank stares, you will usually hear about the same few pieces of well-documented history. US involvement in the overthrow of Allende in Chile in 1973, for instance, or Iran-Contra, where the US military, and intelligence establishment under Reagan illegally sold arms to Iran in order to fund the Nicaraguan Contras. In fact, those who have been following the latest developments in Argentina will know that these ghosts of the past are coming back to haunt some of the officials who were backed by the US during Operation Condor in the 1970s, an attempt by the hardline military dictatorships that came to power in the region in the 1970s with US support to eliminate their left-wing opposition through a coordinated campaign of bloodshed and terror.

In this third episode of our Latin America series James Corbett presents and discusses the recent scandal of immense proportions involving the CIA and the DEA in drug smuggling operations in Chile that are being used to fund political opposition groups in Ecuador, and how Iran-Contra part two is unfolding right now.
