The Trials of Henry Kissinger

Based on Christopher Hitches' book 'The Trial of Henry Kissinger', this superb documentary film is a scathing indictment against what he calls "a pathological liar and a war criminal."

The film briefly traces his birth in Germany to his ascent to White House.

In the film, there're three main cases against him, war in Vietnam and Cambodia, invasion of East Timor, and assassination of General Rene Schneider in Chile.

There are more detailed accusations in Hitchens' book, but, with a lot of archival images, sounds and footage, this documentary succeeds in presenting a very convincing case against this recipient of Nobel Peace Prize in 1973.

For what?
"Efforts to broker a peaceful settlement of the Vietnam War."
