Kissinger Endorses McCain!


In a Rare Move, Kissinger Endorses McCain
Special to the Sun
December 20, 2007

BOSTON — Making a rare foray into primary politics, Henry Kissinger, 84, who served as secretary of state under Presidents Ford and Nixon, is saying Senator McCain is the best person to serve as president at a dangerous time for America and the world.

Mr. McCain stood with Mr. Kissinger and R. James Woolsey, who was the director of central intelligence during the first two years of the Clinton administration, in the historic hall of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts. Flags, sabers, and portraits commemorating the Revolutionary and Civil wars adorned the location in the fourth floor of Boston's Faneuil Hall.

(The venue also just happens to lie less than a mile from the presidential campaign headquarters of Mitt Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts and the man who — according to a Rasmussen poll yesterday — was just four percentage points ahead of Mr. McCain.)

The event, in the poorly lit hall, drew six television cameras, including local stations such as WHDH and the New England Cable News, which has viewers throughout New Hampshire.

"I tremendously admire his service to the nation," Mr. Kissinger said. "I believe that he's the best candidate to serve our nation in an extremely difficult and complicated period." He added that he was "doing something that I am not comfortable with" in making an endorsement, but that Mr. McCain and the nation deserved it.

In what may have been a criticism of Mr. Romney, Senator Clinton, Mayor Giuliani, or a number of the candidates running in the 2008 race, Mr. Kissinger stressed the strength and depth of Mr. McCain's commitment to his belief in America and freedom. "This is not a question of a focus group advising what to say on a talk show," he said.

Mr. Kissinger also took the opportunity to criticize the recent National Intelligence Estimate on Iran. "They had a footnote that said a weapons program is the production of warheads," Mr. Kissinger said. "In fact, there are three elements to a weapons program, the production of fissionable material, the production of missiles, and the production of warheads. …We cannot dismiss it by defining it into one category, and this is a problem that will be with us for the rest of this administration and into the beginning of the next administration."

Mr. McCain, who called General David Petraeus "my man of the year," echoed his words, saying, "We don't want the intelligence agencies to make the policies." He added that the intelligence estimate may discourage European nations from agreeing to impose sanctions on Iran.

Mr. Woolsey balked at discussing Senator Clinton's White House experience on intelligence-related matters, saying he knew her only "very slightly" and that he was not in the administration's "inner circle."

Asked by reporters to comment on the primary process, Mr. Kissinger said, "I have not this actively participated in political campaigns. It shows what importance I have for the election of Senator McCain."

When it was time for the campaign entourage to depart, it fell to Mr. Woolsey and other aides to direct Mr. Kissinger from gladhanding with the throngs of an adoring crowd.

Lets hurry this along

I'm glad there is finally some consolidation on that side, now how long will it take until McCain knocks out the other neoconcs?

Afterwards, Paul can just debate him one-on-one.

only in America

is an endorsement by a wanted war criminal something to boast about!

We really, really need Ron Paul in the White House! (along with Ron Paul types in Congress!)

Kissinger cost us the prisoners! The irony.

McCain runs as the hero vet prisoner.
and see how Kissinger made promises he couldn't keep.

Kissinger can't fly anywhere as there is a war crimes warrant out for him regarding Cambodia.

Well, as others have pointed out the crooks are rallying around McCain. He'll ensure no jail time.
That being the case since McCain is running 100 years of war and the country is 80% against war we are lost to see his support. The support that the polls predicted. Only one conclusion, polls are also crooked. Control the polls, control the count, nothing happening here folks move along.

Boy do we have a fight on our hands.

Watch and feel the power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What A Joke This Is

KISSINGER supporting MCCLAIN is like Anthrax supporting Smallpox. Neither one is something you want.

Vote RON PAUL 2008

How in your face can it

How in your face can it get?

Kissinger Vs. the 9/11 Families

they're showing their cards

They plan to put McCain up in Michigan and to screw Romney. He's out after a couple more big losses. Fred and Giuliani are in trouble, too. This will be a long battle, but we are better prepared than most candidates. They like to show big gains in the polls on McCain but need a reason, they'll use this to justify his Michigan win. Of course, if Romney's smart, he would have bought the MI election by now. I think he's in trouble of pissing off the elite that want him to take a fall "for the electable one". It'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

Even worse than the

Even worse than the Lieberman endorsement.

Kiss of death

Any endorsement from Kissinger is a kiss of death politically...he is as evil if not more evil than Bush and Cheney. Nuf said.

No surprize there

at all.

Please can you show me source...

Concerning the oil reserve levels for alaska.
Everything I have read suggests less than 8 years worth of light sweet crude.
The only energy stores that are close to your suggestion, in the coal seams in the rocky mountains and the abundance of compressed methane crystal of the arctic deep sea floor.
If there is indeed more oil reserves I would be very interested in studying them

Arctic Oil

Check this out. I am going to look for Mr. Williams book today. I don't know if his claims are true but I used to work for the ARCO/Equistar/Lyondell company and am familliar with the names involved.

War Criminal supports McCain

This should be the title of this thread.

"The greatest mystery of all is truth." - Me, 2009

Well, the CFR and the Trilaterals have spoken...

Well, there's our next president, by hook or by crook. I expect that a hot war with Iran will be engaged before the election so they can prop him up as "the Commander that America truly needs at this dire hour"... What a load of &$%#!!!

It only makes sense..

It seems that McCain endorses Kissinger's statement that..

"Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy"

So it makes sense that Kissinger would suck up to McCain!

Here's another "great" Kissinger quote..

"Today Americans would be outraged if U. N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all people of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government."

It's called fascism or control of the populus by fear

How many of you are really afraid of a terrorist attacking you? I am more afraid of getting hit by a beer truck, or having a serious illness and no insurance to cover it, or marshall law or losing my freedom and liberties, or losing my home and the crash of the dollar etc etc etc. Fear, fear, terror, terror of WHAT??? Of WHO???

When I was telling my neighbor about Dr Paul and how he wanted to bring the troops home from Iraq and from bases all over the world, she said "No, no! He can't do that because we need to fight the terrorists!" I asked her "where are the terrorists?" Her answer was "All over the world!" I just smiled and said "Then please tell me how we can fight terrorists?" No answer.

This is what the majority of Americans have been brainwashed to believe and this disturbs me because they are more afraid of a myth than the real problems that they are facing Americans in this country today. How do we fight ignorance and fear of a nonexistant threat?

He sounds just like Hitler

He sounds just like Hitler and Machiavelli rolled into one big fat corrupt bag of puss.

Kissinger in the Middle east

One of the least talked about and little known facts about the treaties with the Middle east...

1. Henry Kissinger got all but 2 countries in the Middle east to agree to ONLY sell oil in the American dollar standard.

2. He also got them to agree to use the profits from those sales (roughly 10%) of which would be used to purchase America's National debt. One of the ONLY reasons why we as a nation are still afloat economically.

Guess which 2 countries refused the deal?

Iraq and Iran

3. There is enough oil in Alaska alone to meet americans current and projected needs for oil for the next 200 years at $1.50 per gallon. there is NO need to rely on foriegn oil at all.

Kissinger is the

Kissinger is the quitissential insider; a Rockefeller henchman with the blood of untold thousands on his guilty hands. Anyone he endores MUST be bad.

Woe to America if McCain is elected!

Conspiracy Theory: Kissinger came out for McCain to help Obama get in?


I was thinking Hillary.


Swap Obama for Hilary.

Swap Obama for Hillary.


Secretary of State during Vietnam endorses a Vietnam veteran who on top of that, is in favor of keeping Iraq going for "100 years." This can only hurt McCain.


Kiss of Death:)

Main Headline on Google News Front Page

NYT: GOP Voters, In Big Shift, Favor McCain

Well, it's official-- the establishment has chosen McCain as the front-runner. With an endorsement from Kissinger, the mainstream media is following suit.

Exactly, a bit like the way

Exactly, a bit like the way the establishment has selected Hitlery Clinton. Big surprise then that both of these CFR shills got the Diebold help in NH.

Surprise! Surprise!

Glad he endorsed McCain. That was a close one! LOL


Looks like ol' Henry may indeed be able to drop some bombs of his own before he goes to that great big IHOP in the sky.

Who have the bin Ladens endorsed?

Who do Kissinger's clients, the bin Ladens, endorse? I'm sure Osama bin Laden will be out soon with his latest video endorsing a CFR-candidate as soon as he leaves his job tending bar in Santa Barbara.

Buy gold; vote paper.
