Summary 60 Minutes has learned that the family of a murdered Chilean general plans to file a lawsuit seeking damages against Henry Kissinger for his alleged role in the death of Gen. Rene Schneider, the commander of the Chilean Army who was killed by kidnappers in 1970. Citing recently declassified government documents, the civil suit is expected to claim that the CIA supported a kidnapping plot which led to the death of the Chilean general. The CIA's support for the kidnapping was part of a larger effort by the Agency to instigate a coup in Chile - an objective ordered by President Nixon and overseen by Kissinger. Bob Simon reports
