The Kissinger Cables and Quote of the Day

Wikileaks recently (yesterday) released a 1.7 million searchable document trove called “The Kissinger Cables”.

This release includes documents from US diplomatic and intelligence officials. As I understand it, the documents released were already public, but stored without search capability in the National Archives. This is going to be fascinating reading, and we will no doubt hear some interesting news as the contents of the release are reviewed.

However….juicy bits are already flowing out…

In one of the documents, Henry Kissinger, no small figure in US diplomacy, explains to his Turkish counterpart in 1975, “The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer.”

One more time…Quote of the Day…from the highest levels of US diplomacy, our Secretary of State, just 2 years after he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize…

“The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer.”
