Both candidates kowtowed to the disgraceful Kissinger. Only Obama cited him correctly.** - By Christopher Hitchens - Slate Magazine

You are on a roll debunking the McCain lies and shredding the cloud of misinformation surrounding his credibility as a legitimate leader in this time of collective challenge.

Thanks for posting this. As I noted in another thread, I am old enough to remember Dr. Kissinger's 'involvement' in all things foreign affairs and I cannot believe that anyone is still soliciting advice from him, much less believing anything he says.
That said, I knew that Sen. Obama was quoting him correctly, so I am glad to see him vindicated.

Christopher Hitchens is an interesting, somewhat contrarian person--and I am really glad he is around, because he is also a committed truth-teller.

I don't agree with your thanking her at all. She is typical of Obama and his supporters. They think every discussion is a college classroom and you need to be able to cite documentation in support of your position. Life isn't like that. Life is a flow of unexpected events and consequences and we need a President who reflects life. Let it flow America and McCain will lead us quickly to where we are going.

Kissinger said he doesn't support the President meeting with the enemy unconditionally. What else do you really need to know?

The Bush/McCain policy of NO talks unless there are conditions obviously doesn't work. To talk is not to agree. Obama has it right and with his attitude, America might once again be a power to be reckoned with. The way that McCain has it pegged will mean that more and more countries will simply ignore America.

Nothing but that Obama has bad judgement as Hillary said also.
