Default OT Document Friday: "My Meeting with Chairman Mao."

Really, if you're interested in history/politics this one should make you chuckle. Kissinger and Mao are a riot. What do you think?

Chairman Mao, apparently, was a night owl. At 11:30 PM on 17 February 1973, he called for Secretary of State Kissinger to meet him at his residence in Beijing. The two statesmens’ jovial conversation meandered until 1:30 the next morning. After the meeting, Kissinger composed today’s hot doc, “My Meeting with Chairman Mao,” an “eyes only” summary for the President. Kissinger painted the elderly dictator in very favorable light, noting that “he radiates authority and deep wisdom,” even proclaiming that the rotund despot was “large rather than fat.”

Rest, including an explosive offer from Mao, and the actual document here: http://nsarchive.wordpress.com/2010/...-chairman-mao/
