Félix Rodríguez as a US commander/leader[edit]

Mr. Rodríguez is alive. Any claim that he had a leading role in the coup needs to be sourced. (talk) 07:45, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Political Background[edit]

I found the section titled "Political Background" to be confusingly structured. It bounces erratically between topics such as domestic politics, CIA involvement, and Cuban influence. Subheadings here would be helpful.

Additionally, to give a balanced discussion of economic context leading up to the coup, the article should provide more information on US economic policy toward Chile. Beyond the mention of "economic warfare" in the introduction, the economic discussion focuses almost exclusively on Allende's monetary policy. To accurately depict the causes of the financial panic, more information is needed on the Nixon's administration's efforts to "make [Chile's] economy scream," such as the credit blockade.
