Brother Number Two

June 14th, 2007

Al Jazeera meets Cambodia’s Nuon Chea, Brother Number Two of the Khmer Rouge.

During our long conversation, his defence of the Khmer Rouge was robust and even though he does admit some mistakes were made, he is keen to confuse the issue.

Indeed. Check out this quote from Nuon Chea himself:

“In Khmer we say, if you are careless, you lose, we had no intention of killing our people. We wanted people to have food and clothes and education. The bad people hid themselves among our people and killed them.”

Wow.

The rest you’ll just have to read for yourself.
