On the 30th anniversary of the historic plebiscite in Chile, the National
Security Archive today posted key documents revealing General Augusto
Pinochet’s secret plans to “use violence and terror” to annul the October
5, 1988, referendum and sustain his dictatorship in power.  The Pinochet
plot was thwarted when key officials of his own regime revealed it to U.S.
intelligence agents and election monitors, and then refused to implement it
in the face of overwhelming opposition by the Chilean people to a
continuation of military rule.
