Christopher Hitchens: The Trial of Henry Kissinger

Host and producer Stephen Spitz speaks with Christopher Hitchens, a social critic and author, about his book, “The Trial of Henry Kissinger”. The discussion includes Mr. Kissinger’s involvement in the overthrow of Salvador Allende’s democratically elected government in Chile and Kissinger’s knowledge of subsequent kidnappings and murders by agents of General Pinochet. We also discuss the alleged leaking by Mr. Kissinger to Richard Nixon of U.S. negotiating positions at the Paris Peace Talks on Viet Nam, which helped Nixon win the 1968 presidential election.
