Henry Kissinger

In the months before 9/11, Hitch was focused on an old target of righteous leftist ire. He published a book on the diplomat's war crimes; it was excerpted in two parts in Harper's and begins thusly: "It will become clear, and may as well be stated at the outset, that this is written by a political opponent of Henry Kissinger. Nonetheless, I have found myself continually amazed at how much hostile and discreditable material I have felt compelled to omit. I am concerned only with those Kissingerian offenses that might or should form the basis of a legal prosecution: 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."
