As lauded as he was questioned, Kissinger was one of the most influential foreign policy strategists. Michele Testoni and Pedro Soriano explain some of their shadows


He was the right-hand man of Nixon and Ford and advised twelve U.S. presidents, but the figure of Henry Kissinger has more shadows than lights. He played a key role in the thawing of the relationship between China and the United States and was the architect of the policy of détente with the Soviet Union during the Cold War. However, his trajectory is littered with controversial decisions that continue to reverberate in the current geopolitical order. One of them, for example, was his support for Pichonet's coup d'état in Chile the same year he received the Nobel Peace Prize.

"The darkest shadow in his career is America's dirty war in Southeast Asia and the lies that accompanied it in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Kissinger was a victim of himself," the international relations professor explains in the video. "It caused a lot of unnecessary deaths on issues that were not clear to be decisive in the long-term U.S. interest," adds lawyer and American policy expert Pedro Soriano.
