U.S. National Security Advisor James L. Jones admitted at the 45th Munich Conference on Security Policy at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof on February 8, 2009, that he gets his daily orders from Henry Kissinger who was President Richard Nixon's Secretary of State in the 1970s.
"Thank you for that wonderful tribute to Henry Kissinger yesterday. Congratulations. As the most recent National Security Advisor of the United States, I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger, filtered down through Generaal Brent Scowcroft and Sandy Berger, who is also here. We have a chain of command in the National Security Council that exists today.
Now I am confused, who is giving the orders in the West Wing? President Obama? 163-year old Henry Kissinger? The National Security Council? Bat-Man?
It can understand someone like Kissinger providing occasional advice, but for him to be giving daily orders down through his elaborate chain-of-command is quite scary!
FYI, Kissinger has been accused of war crimes against humanity in numerous nations around the globe.
