Henry Kissinger is one of the most controversial statesman the United States has ever had. Known by some as the greatest diplomat for his work opening up relations between the Soviet and Chinese governments, Mr. Kissinger is also called a War Criminal by many others.
Kissinger has evaded questions and legal summons by investigators in France, Spain, Chile and Argentina. They seek answers about his involvement in disappearances of citizens in the US and other countries in regard to Operation Condor. Condor was a campaign of political repression and terror involving assassination and intelligence operations implemented in 1975 by the dictatorships of South America. The former Secretary of State was heavily involved in Operation Condor.
On September 10, 2001, the family of General Schneider initiated a civil action in federal court in DC, claiming that Kissinger gave the agreement to murder the general because he had refused to endorse plans for a military coup in Chile.
November 13, 2002, 11 individuals brought suit against Kissinger for human rights violations following the coup. They accused him of forced disappearance, torture, arbitrary detention, and wrongful death. The suit claims that Kissinger provided practical assistance and encouragement to the Chilean regime with reckless disregard for the lives and well-being of the victims and their families.
Both cases were dismissed based on sovereign and diplomatic immunity.
For these reasons and more, activist alliance The Houston Free Thinkers decided to pay the Asia Society Texas Center a visit upon learning that Kissinger would be participating in a conversation with James Baker III. Baker is also a criminal among the ruling class, however Kissinger really takes the cake for countless murders around the world.
The cost for admission was between $150-350 to bask in the presence of Kissinger and Baker. Several members of HFT staked out the center hours before the event began. Besides confronting the war criminal, we spoke to guests attending this event about the true nature of Henry Kissinger.
After 4 hours of circling the building, HFT identified the most likely entry point and hung around like vultures. Around 6:30 pm the commotion began. The plan was simple: Either attempt to get an interview, confront Kissinger, or if all else failed stop his car and attempt a citizens arrest.
As you can see in the video the driver of the vehicle continued to drive forward with no regard for my life. The Houston Police Department officers stand by while a war criminal goes free, and museum employees are overcome with laughter at the sight of the protesters. Despite this, HFT continued to talk with onlookers.
Henry Kissinger still roams free. These days he only travels with legal advice, ensuring that more attempts will not be made to arrest him. After this event we hope Kissinger scratches Houston off his list of safe places to visit.
