The paper offers a review of Henry Kissinger's early years, the positions he held and the multiple awards he received. The paper then focuses on Kissinger's preeminent role in South American dictatorships and the discovery that Kissinger authorized repression in Argentina that resulted in the kidnapping and secret murders of more than nine-thousand people. The paper relates that in 1973, Kissinger became Nobel Laureate for Peace and argues that Kissinger should have his Nobel prize revoked because of his part in the crimes in Argentina and Chile.

From the Paper:

"Henry Alfred Kissinger held the position as the fifty-sixth Secretary of State in the United States from 1973 until 1977. He continued to hold the position of Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs from 1969 to 1975. After he left the government, he began an international consulting firm, Kissinger Associates, of which he is the chairman. Kissinger was born in Fuerth, Germany, on May 27, 1923. When he was only fifteen years old, he came to America and was naturalized as a citizen on June 19, 1943. By 1954, he had received a Bachelor's Degree Summa Cum Laude at Harvard College and a Master's and PhD at Harvard University."
