It can no longer be denied, the declassified CIA & U.S. State Dept. documents acknowledge the US government was deeply involved in 9/11 & purposefully & deliberately helped instigate attacks which left 3,000+ dead.

That is, the first 9/11. The one in Chile.

****************
Early coup attempts:

«On September 15, 1970, in a fifteen-minute meeting between 3:25 and 3:40 P.M., Presidient , Richard Nixon ordered the CIA to initiate a massive covert intervention in Chile. The goal: to block Chilean President-elect Salvador Allende from taking and holding office.

Nixon issued explicit instructions to foment a coup that would prevent Allende from being inaugurated on November 4, or subsequently bring down his new administration.»

– Peter Kornbluh

(Director of the National Security Archive’s Chile Documentation Project)

Economic Sabotage:

«In a special cable to Kissinger,…Richard Helms noted that ‘a suddenly disatrous economic situation would be the most logical pretext for a military move,’ and that ‘the only practical way to create the tense atmosphere in which Frei could muster the courage to act is to see to it that the Chilean economy, precarious enough since the election, takes a drastic turn for the worse.'»

– Peter Kornbluh

«Not a nut or bolt will be allowed to reach Chile under Allende. We shall do all within our power to condemn Chile and the Chilean to utmost deprivation and poverty.»

– U.S. Ambassador Korry

«Make the economy scream.»

– Richard Helms’ handwritten notes in meeting with President Nixon on Chile.

«During the Frei years, Chile had run up almost $1 billion in debt to U.S. banks.»

«For years U.S. officials, and their supporters in academia, blamed Allende’s socialist programs and nationalization of U.S. businesses for the severe drop-off in bilateral and international financial support for Chile.

But recently declassified NSC records on Chile show conclusively that the Nixon administration moved quickly, quietly and politically to shut down multilateral and bilateral aid to Chile- well before Allende had had any opportunity to implement his own economic policies or any question of Chile’s creitworthiness had arisen.

The World Bank, which had provided $31 million in loans to the Frei government in 1969-1970, approved zero loans between 1971 and 1973. Bilateral U.S. assistance, administered through AID, reached $110 million between 1968 and 1970; from 1971 to 1973 that figure dropped to approximately $3 million. The U.S. Export-Import Bank, which provided some $280 million in commercial loans and credits between 1967 and 1970 to Chile, granted not a penny of financing of lending in 1971.»

«The mix of economic sabotage, political propaganda and army prodding worked. Allende found himself confronted by growing disorder and soaring inflation. At every turn, his policies encountered well-funded adversaries.»

– Peter Kornbluh

****************

«In an August 29, 1972, cable the Station reported on ‘efforts by Patria y Libertad and Business Leaders to Provoke a coup.’ (During the Track II period, the CIA funneled $38,500 to Patria y Libertad, a self-proclaimed neo-fascist paramilitary group responsible for numerous acts of terrorism between 1970 and 1973.»

«By the fall of 1971, the CIA Station was conducting a ‘deception operation,’ designed to convince the Chilean generals that Allende was secretly plotting with Castro to undermine the army high command, in order to ‘arouse the military’ to ‘move against [allende] if neccessary.’
