Macomber: That is illegal.
Kissinger: Before the Freedom of Information Act, I used to say at meetings,
“The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer.“
[laughter] But since the Freedom of Information Act, I'm afraid to say things like that.

‘Investigative journalism has never been this effective!' Publico The Kissinger Cables are part of today's launch of the WikiLeaks Public Library of US Diplomacy (PlusD), which holds the world's largest searchable collection of United States confidential, or formerly confidential, diplomatic communications. As of its launch on April 8, 2013 it holds 2 million records comprising approximately 1 billion words. WikiLeaks' publisher Julian Assange stated: “The collection covers US involvements in, and diplomatic or intelligence reporting on, every country on Earth. It is the single most significant body of geopolitical material ever published.”
Phi Beta Iota: Henry Kissinger is personally responsible for the death of the 20,000 US troops [and over a hundred thousand Vietnamese, Cambodians, and Laotians] that died from the date he sabotaged the Paris Peace Talks to the date when he settled for precisely the same terms four years later, the difference being that his “dirty tricks” cost Humphrey the election. This is not only a man whose naked amorality exceeds that of Dick Cheney, they probably share the “German Disease” and are lead players in the “existentialist” drama that considers the rest of us “useless eaters.” The USA is long overdue for a Truth & Reconciliation Commission that pulls no punches and exposes all of these traitors for what they are: criminals of the highest order, a disgrace to the Republic, deserving of nothing but scorn for the balance of their days on Earth. The common factor across all such treason is the silence of the diplomatic, intelligence, and military gerbils.
Greg Palast: BP Failure in Gulf Preceded by Identical Failure for Known Reasons in Caspiuan Sea — BP Covered It Up, US Department of State ALSO Covered It Up. Manning and Truth the Enemy, Crime by BP and Treason by State “Not” the Enemy. Say What?
Fedor Dostoevsky: A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else.
Daniel Ellsberg speaking to Henry Kissinger: The danger is, you’ll become like a moron. You’ll become incapable of learning from most people in the world, no matter how much experience they have in their particular areas that may be much greater than yours” [because of your blind faith in the value of your narrow and often incorrect secret information].
Carl Jung: The maintenance of secrets acts like a psychic poison which alienates the possessor from the community.
