Kissinger is considered a sage because he believed in the inevitable triumph of socialism (not that he believed it would be a good thing).
He saw himself as helping to ease the transition of America into just another socialist state.
No wonder he’s adored by the MSM.
When it came to the MSM Henry was sleeping with all their wives and daughters ~ they hoped for a chance themselves.
Also, it's interesting that Nixon had more understanding of the need to help Israel than Kissinger did.
Six months later, during the Yom Kippur War, Nixon rejected Kissingers advice to delay an arms airlift to Israel as a means of setting the stage for an Egypt confident enough to pursue peace; Nixon, among other reasons, cited Israels urgent need.
