While America publicly commemorates September 11th, this documentary draws attention to a less sympathy-grabbing aspect of US history.
Christopher Hitchens presents the case for prosecuting Henry Kissinger, Secretary of State under Presidents Nixon and Ford, for complicity in war crimes and crimes against humanity – including assassination, kidnap and torture – in Indochina, Bangladesh, East Timor and Cyprus, as well as the Chile military coup of 11th September 1973.
For his efforts he was awarded the Nobel Peace prize in 1973.
