Mr. Kissinger, who was an ambassador for the United States’ failed bid against Qatar for the 2022 World Cup, has been asked to advise the FIFA ethics committee responsible for the enquiry alongside Dutch soccer legend Johan Cruijff and opera singer Placido Domingo.
“Remember only two things: That Kissinger’s secretive consultancy firm tightly controlled the so-called Olympic reform process in 1999 after the catastrophic sex-and-cash-for-votes scandal in Salt Lake City. And remember (are you listening Sepp?) that Kissinger worked on the failed American bid to stage the 2022 World Cup. He knows his country was shafted. Sepp, it’s personal,” writes Andrew Jennings, a veteran, crusading reporter on his Website, Transparencyinsport.org.
