“Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship in Chile represented one of the most difficult
periods in that nation's history. Our thoughts today are with the victims of his
reign and their families. We commend the people of Chile for building a society
based on freedom, the rule of law and respect for human rights.”
An apology, perhaps, would have been nice, considering the 1973 US Government supported the fricking coup in the first place. Anything’s better than the commies, don’t you know?
