John Pilger's 93-minute documentary War on Democracy is available free online at Google Video.
In this three-minute extract, Duane R. 'Dewey' Clarridge, the CIA's chief in Latin America from 1981 to 1984, scoffs at the deaths in Chile under Pinochet and says it was worth it:
PILGER: It was a period which almost everyone in the present moment thinks was a dark time, in which the CIA played a major role.
CLARRIDGE: That's right, they played a major role in overthrowing, uh, wh-wh- whatsisname.
PILGER: 'Whatsisname' was Salvador Allende. He was democratically elected.
CLARRIDGE: Right. OK.
PILGER: Is that OK, to overthrow a democratically elected government?
CLARRIDGE: It depends on what your national security interests are.
