Zita Cabello-Barrueto (born 1950) is a professor at San Francisco State University (SFSU) in San Francisco, California. She teaches classes on U.S. intervention in other countries, especially her native Chile. A staunch opponent of torture, Zita has made two films on the subject, she strongly opposes George W. Bush's stance against John McCain's anti-torture bill; Bush objects to the bill because it does not exempt the CIA. Her disdain for torture comes from her personal experience under Chile's CIA-initiated coup d'état and ensuing 17-year dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet Ugarte; the regime jailed, tortured, and murdered her brother in the 1970s. Her husband Patricio Barrueto was also jailed.
