In this episode, we are joined by Professor Alan McPherson to discuss the assassination of Orlando Letelier: the topic of his book Ghosts of Sheridan Circle: How a Washington Assassination Brought Pinochet's Terror State to Justice.

In September 1976, former Chilean ambassador and human rights advocate Orlando Letelier was killed in a car bombing on Embassy Row in Washington DC. The assassination, carried out by the Chilean Secret Police, was the last state-sponsored terrorist attack that took place on American soil. In this episode, we discuss the planning of the assassination, the people involved, and the massive repercussions for the Pinochet regime that came in its aftermath.
