Martin Edwin Andersen


Martin Edwin Andersen first broke the story in The Nation in 1987 of Henry Kissinger giving a “green light” to Argentina’s far-right generals for their state terrorist dirty war. Andersen subsequently lost his job as a professor at the Pentagon’s National Defense University (NDU) for, among other disclosures, blowing the whistle on an NDU colleague from Chile who served previously as a senior official in Pinochet’s state terrorism organization. Jaime Garcia Covarrubias later received life imprisonment for his role in three separate cases of the murders of nine unarmed people, being found guilty, in 2023 at the time of the fiftieth anniversary of the far-right military coup in Chile, in the case involving four university students and others.
