Yes, Let's Investigate Foreign Assassinations

If we want to have a U.N. session on Syria's involvement in foreign assassinations, can we also get one on Kissinger's involvement in the coup and potential assassination of Chile's President in the 1970s?

How about the US support for mass murder by allies in Guatemala?

And the US involvement in the mass murders that followed the overthrow of President Suharto of Indonesia in 1965?

Or investigations of any range of illegal foreign adventures by our intelligence services?

I'm happy to see a real look at Syria's dirty dealings in Lebanon. I just hope this is a first step in opening up the books on illegal assassination of foreign leaders by ALL countries.
