The BBC had a thing about Kissinger that was, somewhat amusing and outrageous at the same time.
The amusing part was the chief of their Russian section/desk, who is... surprise, surprise, actually a... Ukrainian. He was less than enamoured, enthusiastiv, with Kissinger, one could hear that from his voice. Kissinger wasn't exactly pleased with the profile of the war in Ukraine, because he didn't see what US interests were strengthed there.
Then they managed to completely whitewash the central role the United States played in supporting the CIA-engineered coup in Chile. I was almost shocked. The fact checker involved sound like she was thirteen! They even managed to smear poor Allende, a social democrat, with the label... avowed Marxist!
My mates from Chile cursed Allende for not opening up the arsenals and arming the people, like they were pleading for, as almost everyone knew 'something bad' was waiting just around the corner.
