Henry Kissinger Got a Pat Down at Airport Security

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger speaks to introduce China's Vice President Xi Jinping to leaders from the private and public sectors at a luncheon co-hosted by the US-China Business Council and the National Committee on US-China Relations with the support of several cooperating organizations in Washington, DC, on February 15, 2012. China's heir apparent Xi Jinping told US business leaders Wednesday that the time was ripe for a "new historical starting point" for relations between the two trade powers.
