30 years

So, it's been 30 years since the CIA sponsored assasination (two attempts) of Salvador Allende, the democratically elected president of Chile (the first attempt happening before he even took office.) His crimes against humanity? Mostly threatening to nationalize the phone system which was owned by ITT. And, nationalize didn't necessarily mean seize without compensation, either.

And Henry Kissinger is still a "respected elder statesman."
