These,facts are contained in the transcript of secret testimonies by CIA. Director William Colby and CIA senior staff member F. Davis. at the Inter-American affairs Subcommittee of the House of Representatives. A summary of the testimonies.was published by the "Washington Post." The testimony of the CIA leaders shows that the Department carried on large-scale secret intervention in the inner-political and economic affairs of Chile. This activit-;' the newspaper said, included' infiltration into allp rincipal political parties, support of anti-governmental. demonstrations and alignments, subsidies for opposition press organs. The United States, the Washington Post goes on to say, refused credits to the Allende government to wreck the Chilean economy and also obstructed the granting of.Joans to Chile by international financial agencies. The only exception was made for the sale on credit of American weapons to the Chilean armed forces. Thus, theUnited States sought to speed up the economic crisis in the country and to encourage internal opposition to the` popular unity government. The testimony of the CIA Director and other information show that the United States maintained close contacts with the Chilean military throughout the period following Allende's electoral victory, the newspaper says. The Washington Post adds that the CIA allocated 400, 000 dollars for supporting press organis opposing Allende on the eve of the presidential elections.
