Ever wondered why Hilary Clinton was such a horrible Secretary of State?
Wonder no longer.
Salon has a story out today entitled–“E-mails expose close ties between Hillary Clinton and accused war criminal Henry Kissinger: Kissinger met regularly with Secretary Clinton, and applauded her hawkish foreign policy in a handwritten message.”
I mean, what the fuck?
If there were any semblance of justice in the world, Henry K. would have been hauled before a tribunal at the Hague a long time ago. It’s not like everyone doesn’t know that he’s a monster, Jesus, he can’t even travel to certain countries anymore because of fear of arrest.
“The late journalist Christopher Hitchens devoted an entire book to detailing the war crimes overseen by Kissinger, who infamously declared “The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer.”
In “The Trial of Henry Kissinger,” Hitchens argues the former secretary of state should be tried “for war crimes, for crimes against humanity, and for offenses against common or customary or international law, including conspiracy to commit murder, kidnap and torture.”
Hitchens described Kissinger as a master of “depraved realpolitik” with “a callous indifference to human life and human rights,” who was behind U.S.-backed atrocities in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, East Timor, Chile, Bangladesh, Cyprus, Kurdish Iraq, Iran, South Africa, Angola and more.”
The problem with prosecuting Kissinger is that if they prosecute him, where would it end?
Who among American leaders isn’t a war criminal?
Certainly not President Hope and Change.
They say the good die young. Well, Kissinger’s 92, so evil must live forever.
Update: At least monsters eat well.
