"It will become clear [...] that this is written by a political opponent of Henry Kissinger. Nonetheless [...] I am concerned only with those Kissingerian offenses that might or should form the basis of a legal prosecution: for war crimes, for crimes against humanity, and for offenses against common or customary or international law, including conspiracy to commit murder, kidnap, and torture."--The Trial of Henry Kissinger (2001) by Christopher Hitchens
