Sanders attacks ‘destructive’ Kissinger after Pompeo visit
[PRESSTV] US Senator Bernie Sanders
...The only first openly Socialist member of the U.S. Senate. Sanders was Representative-for-Life from Vermont until moving to the Senate for the rest of his life in 2006, assuming the seat vacated by Jim Jeffords. He ran for the 2016 nomination for president, to be cheated out of it by Hillary Clinton, then went back to being a socialist, waiting for 2020 to roll around...
has attacked former Secretary of State and national security adviser Henry Kissinger over his "destructive" legacy after his meeting with Mike Pompeo.

The 2020 presidential candidate said in a tweet Sunday that in his administration, Kissinger’s advice would not be sought.

"Henry Kissinger was one of the most destructive Secretaries of State in the history of this country," the Vermont senator said. "A Sanders administration will not be taking advice from Henry Kissinger," Sanders added.

#5  M. Murcek, wasn't Kissinger behind the triangulation that separated the Soviets from the Chinese? Some brilliant maneuvering whomever was behind that.

#4  Bernie's just attacking the only politician alive that's older than he is (96). "I promise that in my administration a 96-year-old man will not be Secretary of State!"

#2  "A Sanders administration will not be taking advice from Henry Kissinger," Sanders added.

Unless of course you wish to invest in Communist China. Kissinger is your 'go to' person if that is your goal, he has been for decades.

#1  Kissinger's record is spotty. Negotiating the "peace" in Viet Nam is what he's know for. Of course the only thing the Viet Cong had to deal was the POW / Mia issue and nobody is actually satisfied with how that went down. Suppose we had a no deal end to the Indochina conflict. John McShame never comes home, we get new aerial refueling jets 20 years sooner and maybe a credible opponent to Bath House in 2008. Alternate history.
