• NBC News

Henry Kissinger, the toweringly influential former secretary of state who earned a reputation as a sagacious diplomat but drew international condemnation and accusations of war crimes for his key role in widening the American presence in Vietnam and the U.S. bombing of Cambodia, died Wednesday. He was 100.

Kissinger's consulting firm announced his death, saying he died at his home in Connecticut. No cause was given.
