IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: HENRY KISSINGER - STATESMAN

Rating: 6 votes, 5.00 average.

During Friday night's presidential debate between John McCain and Barack Obama, one of the more interesting verbal spars related to whether former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger supported negotiations with Iran and at what level. The fact that 30 years after he held the position, the opinion of Mr. Kissinger is still so important tells something about the man's impact.



Henry Kissinger doesn't really need an introduction. Kissinger's family fled to the United States from Germany in order to escape the Nazi persecution of the Jews in the 1930s. He went on to attend Harvard and then to teach there before being tapped to serve as Richard Nixon's National Security Advisor and later his Secretary of State. As one of the few senior Nixon Administration officials who came away relatively unscaithed from the Watergate scandal, he kept his job in the Ford Administation. Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to end the 1973 Israel-Arab war.



The 85 year old Kissinger has never left the spotlight and is still very involved in commenting on foreign affairs as was seen from this week's news.

    One of the few things I still agree with Christopher Hitchens about is the perfidy of Henry Kissinger. Kissinger had a hand in the murder of hundreds of thousands--maybe millions--across the globe, from Pinochet and Videla's victims in the Southern Cone to carpet-bombing Cambodia and the disastrous aftermath of the Vietnam War, to selling out democracy in East Timor, to fomenting civil war in Angola. If there were any justice in the world, he'd live out his days in some cellar in the Hague like Milosevich did. The fact that he's the elder statesman of, well, American statesmen, says just about all you need to know about the rot at the center of U.S. foreign policy.

    Henry Kissinger set in motion events that eventually gave us 9/11. True a drunk named Charlie Wilson with his mistress created the Taliban and Al Queida which eventually gave us 9/11. But, Henry Kissinger set in motion the events. When did this happen? In early 1971. In February 1971, the Pakistani regime of Yahya Khan began the systematic genocide of the Bengali moslems. It increased refugees into India and India got involved. When the war eventually began, Henry Kissinger despite all talk about promoting democracy supported the dictator Yahya Khan against the freely elected democracy called India. By the time tricky Dick left office, the damage was already done and with the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, US was deeper in the Pakistani quagmire aiding and abetting people who would eventually harm us. The drunk Charlie Wilson took over where Kissinger left off on the urgings of a whore. After the Soviets left, and when Taliban got in, two other traitor congressmen by the names of John Kasich and Timothy Penny voted to pull out of Afghanistan in the name of balancing the budget..left a vacuum filled by Taliban and Bin Laden which eventually resulted in 9/11. Henry Kissinger started the process.
