Thanks for the clarification.
Have you read Rumsfeld’s recent book? He has interesting things to say about Kissinger, and not all of them are flattering.
I bought Rumsfeld’s book and was a few chapters into it, when he came out and advocated for open homosexuality in the military.
There have been few political things in my life that have caused a greater degree of disappointment and disillusionment.
I simply cannot pick up the book again. Perhaps when I have cooled down, but I just don’t know.
As for Kissinger, he is no dummy, but I have never liked him. Say what you will about Rumsfeld, he always seemed like he was straightforward and would tell you exactly where he stood (or at least I thought)
Kissinger seemed too much like a squishy European diplomat who would say one thing to you while thinking and acting otherwise. I guess I will have to read the rest of Rumsfeld’s book to see what he thinks.
