    Henry Kissinger, the German-born Jewish refugee, who served under two U.S. presidents, and blazed the trail to open diplomatic relations between the U.S. and China, while serving as President Richard Nixon's National Security Advisor and Secretary of State, died at his Connecticut home on Wednesday just over the age of 100, according to his consulting firm, Kissinger Associates, Inc.

    During President Richard Nixon's presidency, Kissinger's diplomatic endeavors not only opened the door with China, his efforts led to the U.S.-Soviet arms control talks, and diplomatic ties between Israel and its Arab neighbors, and the Paris Peace Accords with North Vietnam. 

    Although Kissinger's influence waned in light of Nixon's resignation in 1974 due to the Watergate scandal, he was a force within President Gerald Ford's administration that followed. 

    The late President Ford called Kissinger a "super' secretary of state, but also noted that "Henry in his mind never made a mistake." 

    "He had the thinnest of skin of any public figure I ever knew," said Gerald Ford in an interview in 2006 shortly before the former president's death. 

    No matter how controversial Kissinger was over the years, people listened to him to gain his insight and of those he spoke with and tried to influence on the world's stage.

    No doubt, a deep intellect & brilliant at understanding the geopol forces at play and assessing them. The controversy comes in about what he DID about it. He sought to “balance” the competing powers to maintain stability– Real Politic’, regardless of the internal governance & morals of countries. But the less discussed & real controversy, is his role in facilitating those who seek some form of world govt structure, whose goal is the diminishment of the sovereign nations & peoples
