Kissinger enters at 10:37 minutes into this tape from December 14, 1972 (you can move the tape forward or backwards by hovering the cursor along the conversation bar).  "Hello Henry," Nixon greets him.

"You've been up all night," Nixon says, and then says, "this is so important, we may talk all day."

Put on some headphones and listen to how these three men made the decision to bomb Hanoi and Haiphong.  You will have a front-row seat to history and the innermost workings of the presidency.  

"We are dealing here with maniacs on both sides [meaning both North and South Vietnam]," Nixon says.
