Intrigues were wider and deeper. In an October day in 1970, General Rene' Schneider, the commander-in-chief of the armed forces of Chile, was murdered in daylight on a street. In "The Pinochet File':  Peter Kornbluh has documented these. The assassination was part of a CIA operation to instigate a coup, to create a coup-climate so that Allende could be stopped from being inaugurated. The Pinochet File also tells: CIA paid the assassins of Schneider $35,000 to close their mouths about the US role and to help them escape from Chile.

The Church Committee, the US Senate committee led by Senator Frank Church, investigated US intervention in Chile in the mid-1970s, and it was found that the CIA funded an institute that was preparing for a coup, that did compile lists of both civilians and people inside the Allende government that would need to be taken care of in the event of a coup.
During the Pinochet-era, Amnesty International says, "[t]ens of thousands of people were detained, tortured, killed or disappeared. ... To date, at least 262 individuals have been sentenced for human rights violations but there are more than 1,100 open judicial proceedings.
