Henry Alfred Kissinger, an American politician, diplomat, and consultant, was born in 1923 and fled Nazi Germany with his family in 1938. Richard Nixon appointed him as National Security Advisor in 1969 and then as Secretary of State in 1973.

His influence on US foreign policy, which continues to this day, has spurred the US to untold violence around the world.
Why did you start this website?
Much like the US foreign policy establishment, we're doing it for the money.>
Is this really necessary?
Much like the trillions of dollars the US spends on wars of choice, it is definitely not.
Isn't it really sloppy to cite Wikipedia?

Do you WANT Henry Kissinger to die?
We believe in the value of human life, and no matter what crimes he committed, Henry Kissinger is a human being. We do not wish for his death. We're just wondering why it hasn't happened yet.
Can I send you hate mail?
No, you may not.
