CIA: Operation Cripple

T. J. W.
August 1975
National Review;8/15/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 31, p865
This article reports on the perjury charges filed against former director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Richard Helms about his testimony concerning the role of the CIA in Chile. During the 1973 hearings Helms minimized the CIA role in Chile, clarifying that no attempts had been made to overthrow the Chile government, and that no aid was provided to political enemies of the then Chile government. It now appears that these points were substantially misleading, whether or not such testimony actually constituted the crime of perjury.
