Kissinger Apologizes

If you live long enough--and your name is Henry Kissinger--you may have a lot of apologizing to do.

Kissinger, now 82, has apologized for calling Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi a "bitch" in a conversation with President Nixon in 1971. The remark, along with Nixon's reference to her as "an old witch" and Kissinger's reference to the Indians as "bastards," were revealed recently when the State Department declassified foreign policy documents from that period.
