Obama, McCain, Kissinger: American Realpolitiks
I love Zoe Strauss. Here is a post she just did about an exchange between Obama and McCain about Kissinger. The post then goes on to provide links and information about the controversial career of Kissinger..."war criminal". Go Zoe!
During the presidential debate Obama and McCain had a little back and forth regarding Henry Kissingers's statements and opinion regarding preconditions of diplomatic meetings with Iran.
Here's a recap from the LA Times...
"The candidates each were right when they clashed over what former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said about the wisdom of holding diplomatic meetings with Iran.
Obama was right when he said that Kissinger, in a recent appearance with other secretaries of State in Washington, said U.S. officials should talk to Iranian officials without preconditions.
McCain, in response, mischaracterized what Obama had just said. He implied that Obama had said Kissinger approved of presidential level contacts with Iran. The Democrat did not say that.
