Bob Woodward’s disclosure of the influence of Henry Kissinger on the Bush administration’s Iraq policy both is and is not a surprise. After all, we have known for a long time that the bungling old war criminal has his admirers within the White House.
Hitchens called Kissinger a gargoyle. I couldn’t agree more. You know how some people have an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other? As an Agnostic I have Henry gargoyle Kissinger on one shoulder and Albert Schweitzer on the other. Henry is the one convincing me of the importance of liberating office supplies from the company while Albert suggests that I should just take what I need.
