Kissinger is a “gatekeeper”- he sits so close to the line that he is both trusted and distrusted by everyone. He has the nerve and gravitas to surface the real issues- to be used or abused by the powers on either side.

I don’t hate him- there is a place for people who can do this- it is up to the leaders how it plays out. He opens the door that would otherwise unlikely be opened...

Mr. Kissinger made a strong impression by saying that he, too, had gotten his start in intelligence, and that he felt Mikhail S. Gorbachev had been too hasty in withdrawing Soviet forces from Eastern Europe.

Too hasty compared to what?

An old fool. Gorbachev and Walesa put all such fools’ theories and predictions to dust!
Don’t forget that ole Henry, Zbig and other likes them had some financial interest (books, lectures, consultations) in the totalitarian status quo.

I’m surprised. Kissinger is still alive.
