This review is from: The Trial of Henry Kissinger (Hardcover)
Hitchens opens by saying that he is a political opponent of Kissinger and that he dislikes him. After reading the book, it is impossible to have any form for respect for Henry Kissinger.
The book is very well written and Hitchens uses official, publizised documentation to make his case against Kissinger. A very convincing case.
Hitchens describes Kissingers role in sabotaging the Vietnam War peace negotiations in 67/68, his role in carpet-bombing Cambodia for no reason, hiring an assasin to kill a Chilean General with democratic tendencies (!) and approving Indonesias genocide in East Timor - and more!
He lists the options for taking Kissinger to court - any court - but understands that without US approval, it will never happen.
The book is well worth reading and if you didnt suspect any of this, your view on US foreign policy will probably change.
