Demonstrators at the front door of New York City’s luxurious Plaza Hotel on Sept. 22 boldly protested against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. The ultra-right Hudson Institute was honoring these war criminals at the swanky hotel.
The think tank bestowed its 2016 Herman Kahn Award on Netanyahu — who ordered the military assault that killed 504 Palestinian children in Gaza in 2014 — “for signal contributions to global security and diplomacy.”
The late U.S. military strategist Kahn, who founded the Hudson Institute, argued during his lifetime that nuclear war was survivable. He was a model for the title character in Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 movie “Dr. Strangelove.”
