Toni Tennille informed an audience that she and the Captain performed Muskrat Love
at the dinner in honor of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
(PDF) as part of the Bicentennial celebrations at the White House
, much to the intrigue and/or confusion of Henry Kissinger. Though there doesn't seem to be any video of the performance, there is some photographic evidence
(description of photos
(PDF)). The Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum tumblr has a post on the event, with a higher quality image of Captain and Tennillee in action
. For better or worse, there aren't any people in muskrat-type costumes
to be seen.
In Defense of Henry Kissinger
- The 20th Century's Greatest 19th Century Statesman [more inside]
Henry Kissinger has been named head of the "independent commission"
to investigate the Sept. 11 attacks. President Bush named Kissinger head upon signing bill to establish the commission. Kissinger has a controversial history
and arguable distance from "independence". Given that, can the American people have any reasonable expectation of an honest inspection by their government of what lead up to that day? Will the burning questions
even be asked, let alone answered?
Kissinger: Wanted for Questioning.
...as his list of possible vacation spots grows smaller,smaller. Christopher Hitchens details the ever more complex legal situation of former U.S. Sec. of State Henry Kissinger, who is now wanted for questioning by courts in Chile, Spain, and France. Writes Hitchens: "Recently, I was informed via the former Spanish ambassador to the United States that Kissinger had approached the embassy asking whether he would be safe if he visited Spain. These days he does not travel without legal advice."
"I'd rather use the nuclear bomb,"
"That, I think, would just be too much," Kissinger replied.
"The nuclear bomb. Does that bother you?" Nixon asked. "I just want you to think big."
In light of the Case Against Henry Kissinger
, the National Security Archive published a collection of previously censored papers
which show Ford and Kissinger approved the illegal invasion of East Timor, consciously “influence[d]” public opinion on the matter and continue to lie about
the entire affair.
Some Kissinger victims are taking him to court
in the US. Good.
