Kissinger for idiots
Shortly after Kissinger left office (1977), he was offered an endowed chair at Columbia University, but rising criticism of his bloody role in implementing US foreign policy led to the offer eventually being taken back. Today there are numerous human rights organizations who want to see Henry Kissinger brought before international courts to face human rights violations and war crimes accusations. While it is unlikely this will happen in his lifetime, and though Kissinger remains an influential person in US foreign policy, they may very well get him in the end.
