Henry Kissinger Dead at 100

Former United States Secretary of State and National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger has died at age 100.

Kissinger was well known for his vast control and influence in American politics and foreign policy, particularly under the Nixon and Ford administrations where he opened relations with China, fronted arms control talks with the Soviet Union, and received the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize for his part in negotiating a ceasefire in Vietnam.

Kissinger was also highly criticized for his support and involvement in US-backed coups and dictatorships across the world, as well as the Cambodia bombing campaign.
