"Upon the release of Bill Ayers' new memoir, Public Enemy: Confessions of an American Dissident, I attended his reading in an assembly hall in Hyde Park, Chicago, not far from the homes of both Ayers and Barack Obama. As soon as the Q&A segment was declared, a well-groomed, loud-voiced person who clearly had been preparing his question for quite some time inquired grandly, "Do you think a violent, right-wing radical could've become a professor and successful scholar, like you did as a left-wing Weather Underground radical? Could that happen?"

It already has, many times over.

Yes Kissinger was a good choice. He shares in the responsibility for many deaths in both SE Asia, and in Chile where there was a CIA inspired plot to overthrow the democratically elected Salvadore Allende in 1973.

To put a human face on it, let's look at the story of journalist and filmmaker Charles Horman and his wife Joyce. They set out in 1971 from the US in a camper to travel through Latin America. Upon reachiing Santiago they decided to stay and make their life there. Soon after the coup began Mr Horman was abducted and killed for being an Allende sympathizer, and for perhaps knowing too much.

"For 28 years, Ms Horman (now living in Manhattan) has struggled to track down those who killed the man she loved. And the person at the center of her quest is none other than Henry Alfred Kissinger." Then when asked by a reporter what she misses most about her husband, she said, "He was intelligent, friendly, interesting - he just loved life, and that's why his friends loved him."

Is Kissinger a War Ciminal?

When people like Kissinger are held accountable for their actions, it will be a wonderful day.

Bill Ayers says, teach freedom!

"The following is a chapter by retired education professor William Ayers from the anthology. In it, Ayers advocates replacing a capitalist-oriented educational system with one that liberates students and their intellectual and creative capabilities."
