Salvador Allende's sad ending: He was fund-backed by KGB and got killed by a Cuban Agent!

A new book, about to be published in France "Cuba Nostra - Les Secrets D'Etat de Fidel Castro" by Alain Ammar has destroyed a very-well constructed myth by the left: The assassination of Salvador Allende in Chile while he was being toppled by Augusto Pinochet. This article by Eduardo Mackenzie (updated: it was translated by me to Media Without Mask website) has a brief on the book.
"The fact is that Allende was not a suicide, he was not killed by the military that took the power in september, 1973. During their assault against La Moneda palace, Chilean president was cowardly murdered by one of the Cuba agent that were in charge of his protection" says Eduardo.

Allende was frightened by the military and wanted to surrender. Before he could do this, he was killed.

It´s the second major attack on this leftist myth this month!

Early this month a new book by KGB archivist Vasili Mitrokhin revealed that Allende, and other leftist leaders in Latin America received money from KGB.
This article by Juan Tamayo explains who were helped:

"• The KGB documents record actual and proposed payments to Chile's Salvador Allende totaling $420,000 both before and after his election as president in 1970.

• Costa Rica's José ''Pepe'' Figueres received $300,000 from the KGB for his 1970 presidential campaign and $10,000 afterward.

• Carlos Fonseca, founder of Nicaragua's Sandinista National Liberation Front, was ''a trusted KGB agent'' code-named GIDROLOG.

• Nicaraguan Manuel Andara y Úbeda was a KGB agent who led a group of Sandinistas tasked by Moscow in the late 1960s to scoop out the U.S. border with Mexico for possible targets for KGB sabotage teams.

• The KGB ''trained and financed'' the Sandinistas who seized the National Palace in Managua and dozens of hostages in 1978. A senior KGB official was briefed on the plan on the eve of the raid, led by Edén Pastora, also known as Commander Zero. "

It's the end to these old-time leftist myths in LA?
No. These events were not EVEN mentioned by Brazilian media.
Here in Brazil, we are still wearing Che Guevara shirts and believing in the holy santity of Salvador Allende.

Most leftists deny Allende was backed by Cubans and the KGB, or that Chile was targeted for revolution and eventual imposition of a totalitarian communist state. They instead hold to a pipe dream that Allende was leading Chile was on the road to a liberal democracy with a socialist economy, until that evil fascist Pinochet killed him on the American government's orders.

I doubt your average leftist could be convinced it was communist agents who killed Allende rather than see him surrender.

I would like to know what the Mitrokin archive has to say about what the Soviets were up to in Brazil from Prestes in the 30's to Zé "Sai dai rápido" Dirceu and others in the 80's. I think it would be a bit of a shock to the average Brazilian if the media bothered to look into it. Was anyone getting a "mensalão" in rubles?

P.S. At last (via National Review Online) I've finally found the Brazilian libertarian blogosphere! I was suffocating in academic leftism here at UNCAMP, and your blog and its links are a breath of fresh air,
