Approved For Release 2006/01/30 : CIA-RDP80B01285A001200020009-8 19 November 1970 MEMORANDUM FOR: General Alexander Haig 1? Some time ago you indicated to me that Henry had requested and received from Ambassador Korry a post mortem on the Chilean presidential election. In light of this, I thought it might be useful for you to have a post mortem from us, so that you would be in a position to compare the two. I do not want to be misunderstood: I am not questioning anyone's veracity, I simply want you to have a version as seen through the eyes of my associates most immediately concerned. 2. It may be that you do not want to keep this piece of paper. In that events please return it to me by hand and that will be the end of the matter. Richard Helms bisector ZZI,783 Attachment - 1 Post Mortem on the Chilean Presidential Election ppro @ 'For R tease 2006/01/30 : CIA-Rb10'`A3'f0002000 Approved For Release 2006/01/30 : CIA-RDP80BO128G A001200020009-8 2 December 1970 MEMORANDUM FORt Dr. Henry A. Kissinger 1. This will confirm my remark to you yesterday afternoon that I be authorized to take leave for two weeks from 19 December to 4 January 1971. General Cushman will have returned from Southeast Asia a few days before my departure and will be in charge during my absence. I intend to go to Jamaica as I did last year at this time. 2. NEW SUBJECT; I spoke to the Attorney General about the Chile paper on Tract Two which I mentioned to you. He said he would give it to you personally when he sees you today. This is the safest way to get it in your hands, because, as you well know, it is highly sensitive and it should not float through normal handling channels.
