Nazis Trained and Supported Chile’s Operation Condor Activities

A top secret 1979 report to the U.S. Foreign Relations Committee reveals U.S. backed Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet had help from former Nazi’s in training and supporting his Operation Condor activities.

The declassified report, released on Dec. 12 by the Obama administration, describes the extensive ties between a Nazi “colony” based in Southern Chile and the notorious Chilean secret service DINA, which helped create and operate the deadly multi-state Operation Condor intelligence operation designed to destroy opposition to U.S. backed right-wing regimes in Latin America.

The report outlines that the Chilean Directorate of National Intelligence, DINA, which was created in 1974 to exterminate the left-wing opposition to Pinochet’s dictatorship and reported directly to the President, maintained a “close liaison with the German Nazi colony of La Dignidad in Southern Chile” and even operated a torture center within the Nazi base.

The report describes that the Nazi compound, referred to in the report as “The Colony,” was established by former Nazi officers at the close of World War II and operated with “complete autonomy.” Camp personnel, made of ex-Gestapo or ex-SS officers, gave DINA agents “instruction in torture techniques and have actually taken part in the application of that torture,” according to the report.

The report further details that as DINA developed Operation Condor’s extensive international assassination network, it made use of “the Colony’s national and international contacts,” and that “the Colony’s leadership maintains good relations with Chilean military officials, particularly officers of the Chilean Air Force, who have close ties to the Colony’s former Luftwaffe pilots.”

The report, which was submitted to the U.S. Foreign Relations Committee, which at the time included current U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and was chaired by Frank Church, who authored the Church Committee report detailing the U.S.’s own international assassination operation, outlined the vast scope and ambition of Plan Condor operations.

Based in Chile and created by former DINA director and Pinochet’s close personal friend Manuel Contreras, the report describes Plan Condor as “a consortium” of the intelligence services of U.S.-backed dictatorships in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay.


The report quotes Contreras as saying Plan Condor agents operated under civilian control in “all Chilean embassies abroad” with a goal of “hitting Chilean enemies in those countries.” The report quotes Contreras, a former paid CIA operative who died in 2015 while serving a 500-year sentence in Chile for his crimes, as saying “We will go to Australia if necessary to get our enemies.”

However, the report shows that Contreras’ first stop was, in fact, the U.S. itself. While the report does not give details of U.S. involvement, it admits that before creating Plan Condor, Contreras came to the U.S. in the early days of DINA to seek out support in creating the intelligence network. The report says Plan Condor even attempted to create a “station” in Miami, but when U.S. agents found out and advised issuing a formal diplomatic objection, U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger objected, instead deciding to inform Plan Condor directors directly that the U.S. “disapproved” of a Miami station.

While the report claims the Miami Plan Condor station was never created, it does describe in detail the “phase three” operational plan likely used to assassinate former Chilean Ambassador to the U.S. and key Pinochet opponent Orlando Letelier, in Washington, D.C., in 1976. It suggests a similar process was used to target Venezuelan guerrilla Carlos the Jackal in France and Portugal, a plan which was eventually called off after European diplomats discovered the plot and raised objections.The report is just one of what the National Security Archive — an independent nongovernmental research institute and library based in Washington, D.C. — says are hundreds more documents about Plan Condor operations set to be released in the coming months.

Chile’s DINA and Plan Condor operations are thought to have led to the death and disappearance of 50,000 people throughout Latin America during the 1970s and 1980s.

  1. Edward, I never said the Nazis were the ones raping women, it was those they trained for the Contras. Most of those mercenaries were murderers, rapists and thieves. An entire cadre made up of the worst human scum ever brought together in one place, given the blessings of Rotten Ronnie Raygun.
    The atrocities committed by the Contras were entirely overlooked by the mainstream media.

  2. The article does not mention the School of Americas, which in every sense of the term, a school of assassination and torture.
    The bright shinning star of Washington’s diplomacy was El Salvador. With over 85,000 murdered and countless numbers missing, the civil war there, managed to destroy Washington’s credibility in Latin America.
    That which it has never regained. The rape and murder of seven Mary Knoll nuns. all of whom were Americans, and who were viciously attacked by one of Raygun’s ambassadors
    The shameful legacy of Washington’s criminal activities in Latin America, all for the benefit of multinational corporations and Wall St. cannot be erased simply by dropping them down the memory hole.
    They are forever part of American history.

  3. Not to mention these same Nazis were used to train Rotten Ronnie Raygun’s “freedom fighters” the contras, noted mostly for attacking villages, raping women and girls and murdering all the males no matter what the age.

  4. As per Putin’s close advisers and as per Dr. Joseph P. Farrell & others, a clandestine post-WW2 “Nazi International” is active until this very day. Nazis participated in many “CIA” coups in Mideast & South America. Many times, for all intents & purposes, CIA = Nazi (especially with Daddy Bush & Reagan).

    At WW2 end, Top Nazi spy Gerhard Gehlen surrendered to U.S., which allowed the Gehlen Org to maintain a spying & special Ops network in Europe, USSR, Mideast & especially South America.

    What few know is that the Nazi Gehlen Org sometimes if not often worked with Israelis. For example, see “The Strange Case of a Nazi Who Became an Israeli Hitman” at http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.711115 (“Otto Skorzeny, one of Mossad’s most valuable assets, was a former lieutenant colonel in Nazi Germany’s Waffen-SS and one of Adolf Hitler’s favorites”).

    Thus, given VT’s & others’ assertions about a Rothschild Khazarian Mafia, what we may actually be witnessing is a quasi-unified Rothschild Khazarian/Nazi International Mafia. Imagine that… ;-).
