Everybody is seduced by Kissinger

What a disappointment. New York Times columnist Roger Cohen writes a column where he tells us he was called by war criminal Henry Kissinger and he rather enjoyed the experience:

Henry Kissinger called me, which does not happen often, but does happen on the eve of World Cups — a reflection of a shared obsession and a fair indication that soccer (football, actually) will trump the global battle for treasure and influence over the next month, or rather transfer it to the pitch. On the U.S. team, one of whose attractions is that it has not yet mastered the professional foul, Kissinger was laconic: “We’re better but we don’t have a national style that I’ve been able to figure out. We’re a work in progress, just as we are in managing international affairs on a global basis.
