Henry Kissinger Returns to International Politics

Politics is a dirty thing to deal with, yet, it is not really dusty

The current owner of the Oval Office now has rather odious advisers. Elliot Abrams, a former State Department official, was appointed Condoleezza Rice’s aide. Abrams was implicated in the international controversy Iran-Contras in the 1980s. Now Elliot Abrams is in charge of African and Middle Eastern issues.

National Security adviser of the American president stated that Abrams would be in charge of Arab and Israeli relations as well as the efforts to achieve peace in the region. Elliot Abrams maintained the armed struggle of Nicaraguan counterrevolutionaries against the Sandy government during 1980-1988, during Ronald Reagan’s stay at power. In 1991 Abrams was found guilty of concealing the information from the US Congress in 1986 pertaining to secret deliveries of weapons to Nicaragua. However, in 1992, President George Bush withdrew that conviction from Elliot Abrams.

Incumbent President George Bush appointed Henry Kissinger his adviser.  Henry Kissinger (US Secretary of State in 1973-1977) has a lot of skeletons in his closet. As a matter of fact, there is nothing surprising about that, really, because politics is a dirty thing to deal with. Yet, not all of those secret have been made public. Will they ever become public, though?

The Spanish justice clutched at Henry Kissinger in the beginning of the current year. The Spanish justice was represented by judge Baltasar Garzon, who is known for his attempts to jail Chile dictator Augusto Pinochet.

Garzon was in charge of the pending case concerning Operation Condor, in connection with the investigation of Pinochet’s crimes. The investigation was about the close cooperation between military dictatorships of Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, and other countries of Latin America to conduct terrorist acts against their political adversaries and otherwise-minded people.

A lot of people died as a result of those acts of terrorism, including internationally known politicians. Garzon categorized those actions as international terrorism.  It is clear from the materials of the investigation that the CIA was involved in the international terrorism within the scope of Operation Condor. The activities of the Central Intelligence Agency were authorized by Kissinger. This fact is also confirmed with the documents that have been recently removed from secret archive lists of American special services.

The pushing Spanish judge failed to call Henry Kissinger into criminal account. America does not squander such people: the nation is thankful to Kissinger for the cessation of the Vietnamese massacre.
