John Dinges was special correspondent for Time, Washington Post and ABC Radio in Chile.

Career

Dinges was one of the few American journalists to reside in Chile during the most violent period of military government. With a group of Chilean journalists, he cofounded the Chilean magazine APSI.[1] Since 1996 he has been associate professor and director of radio at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

Bundesnachrichtendienst

Dinges has claimed[When?] that the Bundesnachrichtendienst assisted Colonia Dignidad by creating of bunkers, tunnels, a hospital, and runways for the decentralized production of armaments in modules (parts produced in one place, other parts in another). This subject was hidden, because of the problems experienced at the time associated with Argentina.[citation needed]

Publications

In 2003, Dinges published The Condor Years: How Pinochet and his Allies Brought Terrorism to Three Continents, about Operation Condor. His other books include: Assassination on Embassy Row (Pantheon 1980), with Saul Landau, on Orlando Letelier's murder; Our Man in Panama (Random House 1990); Sound Reporting: The NPR Guide to Radio Reporting and Production (editor), and Independence and Integrity (editor).

Dinges's Assassination on Embassy Row (Pantheon 1980, with Saul Landau) was a finalist for the Edgar Allan Poe Award 1981 for "Best Fact Crime".[2]
