    Do you have any thoughts on Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Here, I am really talking about the period when he was in office in the late 1960s, early 1970s.

      Kissinger is a devious character, a practitioner of realpolitik.

      Kissinger has always caught my interest.  In my view he's somewhat of an enigma.

    He was and is a brilliant political strategist ! Interestingly he was a member of the same Army Infanty division fighting in WWII as my fathers.  The 334 th Infantry Division."Railsplitters" so created by Abe Lincoln.  His power of influence and polital insight to me ? Impeccable ! He alone was the driving force behind the Hanoi peace talks that ended the Viet Nam war. Also his influence of the middle east peace policies  since then were instrumental in holding it together until recently, that is !  He is a man well woth studying!
