(h/t p. m. carpenter)

This is a second-hand comment on her review of Kissinger's new book, World Order, and based mostly on David Corn's comments:
Corn quotes Clinton on Kissinger:
Even when there are tensions between our values and other objectives, America, he reminds us, succeeds by standing up for our values, not shirking them.
To which Corn responds, "Kissinger reminds us that America succeeds by standing up for its values? Did she inhale?" He proceeds:
As secretary of state, Kissinger made common cause with--and encouraged--tyrants who repressed and massacred many. He did not serve the American values of democracy, free expression, and human rights. He shredded them.
How can she forget Cambodia?
