Henry Kissinger Henry Kissinger served as Secretary of State from to , as well as assistant to the President in regards to National Security Affairs from to It was during his time as Secretary of State that many people eventually held him partially to primarily responsible for some of the events of foreign policy that occurred during that time. Christopher Hitchens was one of these people.

In fact, Kissinger is one of the few subjects of which Hitchens wrote a novel about, which was titled "The Trial of Henry Kissinger". Hitchens always believed that Kissinger should be prosecuted for a number of offenses to foreign policy that he presided over during his time as the Secretary of State. According to Hitchens, this prosecution was necessary because of "war crimes, crimes against humanity, and offenses against common or customary or international law, including conspiracy to commit, murder, kidnap and torture.

Within these articles and debates, Hitchens primary complaints and criticisms of Kissinger centered around the events in Chile and Argentina, as well as France. The issues in Argentina and Chile involved the ruling of the countries by people that the U. In Chile, it was the Socialist presidential candidate Salvador Allende, while Argentina involved the toppling of elected official Isabel Peron by the Argentinian military. In both of these cases, officials, and anyone that challenged the party that eventually took over, "disappeared" mysteriously.

It was later found that the U. Christopher Hitchens believed that Kissinger was among the only people within the Nixon administration to escape punishment because of these and other actions that were damaging to the United States, which he makes clear in a later debate, saying "Certainly, of the four people who concerted that policy--Richard Nixon, Attorney General John Mitchell, Vice President Spiro Agnew and Henry Kissinger--only one has escaped any kind of indictment so far.

Henry Kissinger

Yet one man has now grasped what so many others have not: if Augusto Pinochet is not immune then no one is. And that man is now extremely twitchy. But it is. In writing this book I have been amazed by the wealth of hostile and discreditable material, such as the betrayal of the Iraqi Kurds and the support for South African destabilisation of Angola, that I have been compelled to omit. Morally repulsive as these may be, I have limited myself to those Kissingerian offences, as revealed in declassified documents, for which there is a prima facie case for prosecution on counts of war crimes, crimes against humanity and offences against international law. Kissinger symbolises the pornography of power.
