A film by Alex Gibney and Eugene Jarecki
Did Henry Kissinger sabotage the 1968 Vietnam peace talks for his own political gain? Did he orchestrate the secret bombing of Cambodia without approval from the U.S. Congress? Did he authorize covert operations - involving kidnapping and assassination - to overthrow a Chilean President? In a new climate of international justice, The Trials Of Henry Kissinger investigates these and other charges.
Featuring previously unseen footage, declassified documents and revealing interviews with Kissinger supporters (Alexander Haig, Brent Scowcroft, and William Safire)as well as his detractors (Seymour Hersh, William Shawcross, and Christopher Hitchens), The Trials of Henry Kissinger explores how a young boy who fled Nazi Germany grew up to become one of the most powerful and controversial figures in U.S. history.
