Condor investigation leads to Pinochet's indictment. New York Times December 14, 2004:

"If there were ever a case that shows that a head of state had to be involved in these atrocities, it is Condor," said John Dinges, the author of "The Condor Years" and one of the experts Judge Guzmán consulted. "I have evidence that Pinochet was actually at the meeting when Condor was formed, and it is impossible to believe that subordinates would create something as elaborate as Condor without the explicit approval of the head of state."

Condor Years Document Reveals that Pinochet Consulted Kissinger about a possible invasion of Peru. "Assume the worst, that is to say that Chile is the aggressor. ... What happens?" Pinochet asks Kissinger is a secret meeting June 6, 1976.
