BBC: Kissinger regrets India comments

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has expressed regret over anti-India comments he made to former US President Richard Nixon.

"The Indians are bastards," Mr Kissinger said shortly before the India-Pakistan war of 1971, it was revealed this week.

Mr Kissinger also called former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi a "bitch" during the conversation.

That was future Nobel Peace Laureate (no, really), Henry Kissinger, speaking, in case you were wondering.
