"Henry Kissinger Is Thus a Litmus Test for Foreign Policy"

"The sparring during Thursday's Democratic presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders over whether Henry Kissinger is an elder statesman or a pariah has laid bare a major foreign policy divide within the Democratic Party.
"Clinton and Sanders stand on opposite sides of that divide. One represents the hawkish Washington foreign policy establishment, which reveres and in some cases actually works for Kissinger. The other represents the marginalized non-interventionists, who can't possibly forgive someone with the blood of millions of brown people on his hands."

Dan Froomkin at The Intercept argues that "Kissinger is an amazing and appropriate lens through which to see what's at stake in the choice between Clinton and Sanders."
