Henry Alfred Kissinger (born Heinz Alfred Kissinger; 27 May 1923) is a Jewish American politician, diplomat, geopolitical consultant, and Zionist, who served as United States Secretary of State and National Security Advisor under the presidential administrations of Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.

For his actions negotiating a ceasefire in the Vietnam War, Kissinger received the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize under unusually controversial circumstances, with two members of the committee resigning in protest.

He has also been influential in various later presidential administrations, as a more unofficial adviser.

Kissinger has been involved in numerous controversies, with leftist sources such as Wikipedia describing selected (leftist) criticisms.
