The Kissinger Case
Henry Kissinger beware. With the detention of former Chilean President Augusto Pinochet and the arrest of Yugoslavia’s Slobodan Milosovic, no longer can tyrants hide behind the defense of sovereign immunity for their crimes against humanity. While some still consider Kissinger one of the U.S.’s most influential political power brokers, as Secretary of State and National Security Adviser, he played a role in numerous heinous crimes, from genocide in East Timor to the coup in Chile. If Henry Kissinger is ever indicted, the prosecution team should recruit Christopher Hitchens to help their case.
Christopher Hitchens was a regular columnist for Vanity Fair. His articles appeared in major journals and magazines. He was the author of many books including For the Sake of Argument and The Trial of Henry Kissinger. He died in December 2011.
