Nixon Torpedoed Vietnam Peace?

If this is true, then he was even more of a psychopath than we thought. And a treasonous psychopath at that...

It'd be good for the country to have a long period of meditation on the horribleness of Richard Nixon. The very people who believe that American is anointed by God, and, except for its lamentable liberal tendencies, perfect, are the kind of people who supported Nixon. Though they probably wouldn't do so again, since he'd be too liberal for them... In my lifetime, the GOP has given us two horrible presidents; to add insult to injury, they have yet to admit that either one was at all bad. Though, actually, it's to add injury to injury, since the failure to acknowledge such errors make it more likely that they'll be repeated...

We are capable of electing disastrously bad presidents, including psychopathic ones. Tribal allegiances are anathema to democracy. This is not a game.

This has been common knowledge among Nixon haters since the early 90s. Hitchens used it as part of the case against Kissinger in his book, since Kissinger was Nixon's mole among the Johnson peace negotiators. That evil old fuck is still alive. Why doesn't somebody stick a camera in his face and ask him about it?

Yeah, I knew the hypothesis was around. But here's...evidence!

You're absolutely right--somebody needs to hold Kissinger's feet to the fire on this.
