Hilary Clinton recently labelled Henry Kissinger a hero of democracy. She did not mention the wholesale slaughter of Vietnam, the secret bombing of Cambodia, the chemical genocide in Laos Kissinger oversaw; neither she care to discuss his 1974 plan of mass genocide by controlling food supplies in order to commit genocide. In 1995 Joseph Brewder, writing for Executive Intelligence Review, wrote
On Dec. 10, 1974, the U.S. National Security Council under Henry Kissinger completed a classified 200-page study, “National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The study falsely claimed that population growth in the so-called Lesser Developed Countries (LDCs) was a grave threat to U.S. national security. Adopted as official policy in November 1975 by President Gerald Ford, NSSM 200 outlined a covert plan to reduce population growth in those countries through birth control, and also, implicitly, war and famine. Brent Scowcroft, who had by then replaced Kissinger as national security adviser (the same post Scowcroft was to hold in the Bush administration), was put in charge of implementing the plan. CIA Director George Bush was ordered to assist Scowcroft, as were the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture
Clinton, in her fit of amnesia also fails to mention his support for mass murder in Latin America, the overthrow of a democrat, with the replacement of a fascist, Augusto Pinochet, in Chile. The bloodbath in Bangladesh in 1971 also happened on Kissinger's watch; but most barbaric than the others was the genocide in East Timor. This is democracy, so we are told.
