The Case Against Kissinger
War criminal or elder statesman? Filmmaker Eugene Jarecki makes a case in The Trials of Henry Kissinger.
Screens Story  January 24, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...It's the latter that is the focus of filmmaker Eugene Jarecki's new documentary, The Trials of Henry Kissinger (co-produced and written by Alex Gibney), and although the film's title is -- at this stage, anyway -- wishful thinking, the film, commissioned by the BBC, provides enough moral and ethical ammunition against the man to bring his gilded career as global statesman to a grinding halt. One can assume that is exactly what Kissinger must have been thinking when, while on a nonofficial visit to France in the spring of 2001, he was subpoenaed by a French judge for questioning regarding his role in the regime of Chile's Augusto Pinochet..."

Film Review  January 24, 2003, by Marrit Ingman
"...Directed by: Eugene Jarecki. What should we call a man who provides weaponry, cash, and logistical support to radicals scheming to overthrow a democratically elected government? Who arranges abductions and murders? Who encourages nuclear proliferation? Who calls for the secret invasion of a country without a declaration of war? Whose covert machinations led to appalling acts of violence against innocent citizens on September 11? Would we call him a terrorist? A war criminal? Would we pressure a nation that supported and sheltered him? Surely we would not appoint him the head of a task force investigating al Qaeda or award him the Nobel Peace Prize..."
