Salvador Allende's socialism was not to be tolerated by the U.S.
The legally elected president of Chile was the victim of a CIA engineered coup that resulted in his death in September of 1973.
David Atlee Phillips of the CIA managed the propaganda leading up to the coup. He would later be instrumental in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Allende was replaced by the brutal dictator General Augusto Pinochet, who was responsible for the torture, disappearances and deaths of thousands of his fellow Chileans in the decades that followed.

JFK And The Unspeakable
I've read at least a hundred books about the JFK presidency, his assassination, research into that event and related people. In my experience, this is the best book to date covering all of these topics.
The same people who were behind JFK's murder were behind the coup that deposed Salvidor Allende and resulted in his death.
