The criminal case against Henry Kissinger just managed to get stronger somehow
That Kissinger walks free is among the greatest indictments of our political system
My colleague Nick Turse has published a new investigation into the war crimes of Henry Kissinger, based on interviews with Cambodian villagers and survivors of his onslaught, as well as a cache of unpublished documents that detail both his complicity and the scale of the crime in new ways.
His story is here.
He appeared today on Counter Points and Democracy Now. I hope you’ll check it out and share it widely.
(And I still have some signed books left if you want one. If you want an inscription, just tell me who to make it out to.)
Not just in Indochina, but closer to home, in the Americas, Chile in Particular, were Kissinger was instrumental in organizing and covertly supporting the deposing by force of arms of the Allende democratically elected government, where this President was murdered in an armed attack to the Palacio de la Moneda, Chile's Presidential palace, equivalent to the White House, and the bloody regime of the dictator Pinochet was installed instead. This was related to another CIA inspired large-scale operation, the Operation Condor, that extended from Peru to Argentina, from the Pacific to the Atlantic and from the tropics to the Straits of Magellan, and resulted in the overturning of elected governments and their replacement with murderous and long-lasting tyrannies.
