Sir: So Jeremy Paxman treated his esteemed guest Henry Kissinger with "calculated rudeness" (leading article, 29 June) As an American who vividly remembers Kissinger's role in the bombing of Cambodia and his backing of South American dictators, may I congratulate Mr Paxman? Thank God there is an English broadcaster who is not afraid to be direct (an attribute in American English which translates as "rude" in British English) and interrogate his interviewees in the manner they deserve.
