Henry Kissinger Asks “Does America Need a Foreign Policy?”

December 5, 2014 With Henry Kissinger

That was the title of his book  published in 2001 and discussed with us in a memorable and far-ranging “tour of the horizon.” Among the matters discussed at the very beginning of the 21st century were: missile defense, the instability caused by the end of the cold war, the Ruandan genocide. the emergence of modern China, the “dreadful” state of the middle east at the beginning of the new century and, as a matter of some surprise,  the need for less American involvement in world politics. As in an earlier appearance on our program, the clarity and lucidity of his commentary was, to say the least, “magisterial.”
