In the early 1970s, U.S. conservatives’ proliferating connections to kindred movements abroad proved difficult to manage. When an attempt to lead a new group called the World Anti-Communist League ended in disaster, Americans began to turn their back on the anticommunist international. It was too radical and too uncontrollable, some said. As Americans withdrew from the movement, new leaders emerged. In Latin America, much of which fell under the sway of authoritarian military dictatorships in the 1970s, right-wing civilians and state officials mobilized a network of security forces, private groups, mercenaries, and paramilitaries to purge their societies of suspected subversives and eliminate their opponents abroad. They would make the anticommunist international more lethal.
