10 quotes illustrate Kissinger's megalomania and indifference to the deaths of untold numbers of civilians. For example: “It is an act of insanity and national humiliation to have a law prohibiting the President from ordering assassination.” And, 'The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer,' likely brought a smile to his legions of elite media, government, corporate and high society admirers. Oh that Henry! That rapier wit! That trademark insouciance! It is unlikely, however, that the descendants of his more than 6 million victims in Indochina, and Americans of conscience appalled by his murder of non-Americans, will share in the amusement. His illegal and unconstitutional actions had real-world consequences: the ruined lives of millions of Indochinese innocents in a new form of secret, automated U.S. executive warfare.
