Background

In 2003, Kissinger named Fritz G. A. Kraemer as "the greatest single influence of my formative years".[1]

Vietnam

In a phonecall on April 17, 1969, Kissinger advised Richard Nixon that "we might have to go to tactical nuclears and clean it up. All hell will break loose for two months, but at end of road there will be peace in Asia."[2][3]

Letelier Assassination

An August 23, 1976 US State Department cable instructed the U.S. embassies in the capitals of Chile, Argentina and Uruguay to "seek appointment as soon as possible with highest appropriate official, preferably the chief of state" and to state that the U.S. government knew that Operation Condor might "include plans for the assassination of subversives, politicians and prominent figures both within the national borders of certain... countries and abroad." Henry Kissinger canceled this warning against international political assassinations. William D. Rogers, Kissinger’s former assistant secretary of state, denied that Kissinger was involved with a September 20th cable instructing the US ambassadors "to take no further action" on the subject of Operation Condor. Kissinger's involvement was revealed in 2010 by a declassified cable from the State Department.[4] Orlando Letelier and Ronni Karpen Moffitt were assassinated in Washington's Embassy Row on September 21st, 1976.[5]

War Criminal status

Some consider Henry Kissinger a war criminal and as in the case of Tony Blair, have tried to arrest him as such.[6][7][8] On September 11, 2001, he was sued, together with other officials from the Nixon Administration by the family of Chilean military commander Rene Schneider who was killed during a botched kidnapping in 1970.[9]

Deep Politics

Kissinger is a regular attender at Le Cercle.[10]
