NSC secretary?

Bromley Smith was NSC secretary at least through 1969. Did Kissinger wear this hat as well as Assistant to the President and later SecState? Howard C. Berkowitz 16:52, 6 June 2008 (CDT)

One of the news stories says so but it does seem unlikely so I'll drop it. Richard Jensen 19:41, 6 June 2008 (CDT)


Some changes, such as moving the bibliography to a subpage, "see also" to Related Articles, are part of general copy editing, including correcting some names and titles. I am also in the process of making some edits to improve neutrality, specifically in the commentary that emphasized American conservatism as Kissinger's model. Kissinger would be shocked to be called a conservative; his whole career has been based on "realism" rather than strict ideology.

I will be adding specifics that will tie to Paris Peace Talks, both from his own books and from the relatively recently declassified negotiations between Kissinger and Soviet Ambassador to the U.S. Anatoly Dobrynin.Howard C. Berkowitz 18:28, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
