Hitchens lays down his demands re: Kissinger
A must read over at Slate. Hitchens, who wrote The Trial of Henry Kissinger, now has been handed yet more evidence against Kissinger by the Nixon Library.
Here’s what should now happen, and let’s see if it does. Henry Kissinger should have the door shut in his face by every decent person and should be shamed, ostracized, and excluded. No more dinners in his honor; no more respectful audiences for his absurdly overpriced public appearances; no more smirking photographs with hostesses and celebrities; no more soliciting of his worthless opinions by sycophantic editors and producers.
The goods? New tapes have Kissinger advising Nixon with the following:
The emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an objective of American foreign policy. And if they put Jews into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern. Maybe a humanitarian concern.
Vomit at will.
