>> In the dark holes of Chile's Museum of Memory and Human Rights. Dark secrets are coming to light. A new exhibit called secrets of the state is displaying thousands of declassified documents from the early 1970 when with the help of the United States a violent military coup overthrew democratically elected President Salvador Allende.
> During Pinochet's rule, some 3,000 people died or disappeared in Chile, thousands more were tortured or exiled, and now ordinary Chileans can see first hand the part played by the United States.
The exhibit includes transcripts of conversations between then President Richard Nixon and his Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger.
As well as CIA documents implicating the US backing of brutal dictator General Augusto Pinochet.>>
