The type of murder mystery that doesn't interest our pathetic media

While CNN HLN's execrable Nancy Grace night after night fixes her permanent scowl of indignance upon footage of Casey Anthony carrying on a phone conversation with friends/family/lawyers while in prison, evidence has finally come out that Henry Kissinger gave a nod and a wink to a foreign government carrying out an assassination on US soil.

On September 21, 1976, agents of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet placed a bomb in a car in Washington, D.C., used by Chile’s former ambassador, Orlando Letelier. When detonated later that day, the bomb killed Letelier and an American citizen accompanying him, Ronni Moffitt. Did the U.S. government play some sort of role in this double homicide, carried out in the nation’s capital? On Friday, as Ken Silverstein notes, the Associated Press’s Pete Yost published the essence of a damning new document, showing that Henry Kissinger canceled a State Department warning that was to have gone to Chile just days before the assassination.
Of course, given that Kissinger is not an attractive white female, it's obvious why the story is of far less importance and significance to a democratic society that Casey Anthony or Natalee Holloway or Laci Peterson and other such figures whose deaths (or suspected crimes) are turned into infotainment by the likes of Grace and other such media vultures.
