Henry Kissinger: ‘Warmonger’ former US secretary of state dies at 100
Henry Kissinger, a diplomatic powerhouse whose roles as a national security adviser and secretary of state under President Richard Nixon left an indelible mark on U.S. foreign policy, died on Wednesday at age 100.
Kissinger died at his home in Connecticut, according to a statement from his geopolitical consulting firm, Kissinger Associates Inc. No mention was made of the circumstances.
The German-born Jewish refugee moved to the United States with his family in 1938 at age 15 during Nazi Germany.
Critics have branded him a war criminal and merciless hawk for his role in the Vietnam war, the bombing of Cambodia, and supporting dictators around the world.
