Final P

In Christopher Hitchens's "The Latest Kissinger Outrage—Why is a proven liar and wanted man in charge of the 9/11 investigation?" why does Hitchens state that the appointment of Henry Kissinger as the chair of the inquiry into the "failures of intelligence" on 9/11 appear to be openly contemptuous of the families of victims of 9/11? Do you think most informed Americans would agree with Hitchens's assessment of Kissinger's appointment and the message the appointment sends to the international community? Provide examples from any of your reading, your conversations with other Americans or your experience to support your evaluation of Phillips's assertion.
