Henry Kissinger, Nixon's secretary of state who opened the door to China, has another new move up his sleeve. For the first time, he's lending his name to a foreign policy think tank. Whispers has learned that the Woodrow Wilson Center will soon announce the creation of the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States. This is the real deal: Hank will be joined by Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs Yang Jiechi. The center looks to raise about $25 million to build an institute that will focus on helping to foster relations with China. Insiders, meanwhile, joke that the institute's acronym is a real but sad statement on current U.S.-world relations: KICUS.
