Kissinger and the secret spy network of old Nazis and German aristocrats 'who plotted to overthrow West German goverment'05/12/2012 17:07
A German academic has unearthed evidence showing former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger once discussed a coup with disgruntled Nazis to overthrow the West German government in the 1970s.
Kissinger and Richard Nixon were aggrieved at the left-leaning government of the day's burgeoning friendship with the hardline East German government.
Kissinger became the contact man for a secret spy network made up of old Nazis and elite aristocrats aimed at torpedoing the plans formulated by Chancellor Willy Brandt.
The group he became embroiled with was called 'The Little Service' and was formed by the conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU), which was allied with Bavaria's Christian Social Union.
