Peggy Noonan recently reports:

Kissinger at the Council on Foreign Relations

On the Obama administration’s foreign policy: “They are skillful in handling tactical aspects of situations.” But “they have not been able to put this together into a strategic overview of where we’re going.” “I don’t think they’re disliked but they’re not fully trusted anywhere. Nobody knows where they’re going.”

On China: He warns against “the tendency of Americans to pay attention to the personality” of individual leaders.....

On Egypt: Rose asked what are the consequences of the Islamic government in Cariro. Kissinger: “Nothing is more boring than someone who says, ‘I told you so.’ But I told you so.” This was met with laughter.

Highly recommended reading.  It's straight forward with little to no Noonan opinions.  Each country now embroiled in conflict or perceived as a threat is addressed by HK.

Also, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to Join CFR as Distinguished Fellow  

"We are thrilled to welcome Tim back to the Council on Foreign Relations," said CFR President Richard N. Haass.

Timothy F. Geithner, the 75th Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, will join the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) later this month as a distinguished fellow. Geithner, who was previously a senior fellow at CFR in 2001, will be based at the organization's headquarters in New York.

"We are thrilled to welcome Tim back to the Council on Foreign Relations," said CFR President Richard N. Haass.

CFR is always interesting, albeit secret.  Here's the link to CFR website

Here's a 2001 transcript hosted by none other than Peter G Peterson (the PGP that wants to end Social Security)

A Conversation with Former Secretaries of State: Kissinger, Shultz, Christopher, Albright

There is a good amount of discussion on US relations with China in this transcript.  Quite interesting.
