This week’s best speech: Kissinger at the CFTNI 20th Anniversary Dinner

January 18, 2014

No, it ain’t President Obama’s NSA speech.

When Brent Scowcroft introduced Henry Kissinger last week at the Center for the National Interest’s 20th Anniversary Dinner, he noted that most people – when introducing Kissinger – say “here is a man who needs no introduction.” But that, as Scowcroft noted, is wrong.  Please watch Kissinger’s fascinating remarks on power, strategy, and history after an elegant and personal introduction from Scowcroft.

Ryan Evans is the assistant director at the Center for the National Interest and the editor-in-chief of War on the Rocks.
