Henry Kissinger became National Security Advisor to President Richard Nixon beginning in 1969, but he was secretly affiliated with Abstergo Industries. Under their auspices, he masterminded a plan to overthrow the government of Chilean President Salvador Allende in 1973. Following the success of this coup, the Templars replaced it with a regime led by Augusto Pinochet.
Three years later, a parallel coup was orchestrated in Argentina, whereupon Kissinger met with the foreign minister of the new military government, César Augusto Guzzetti. Assuring Guzzetti that his side wanted the junta's "economic program to succeed", he promised them illicit loans. He subsequently helped to reinforce their rule through the Dirty War, which saw the forced disappearances of 30,000 Argentinians.
