East Timor betrayed

by Maracas on Feb 28, 2008

I have intimate knowledge of the invasion of East Timor and the politics leading up to the event. I visited the country in May 1975 and met leaders of Fretilin during the first anniversary of their founding 20th May the previous year. I visited again on the occasion of their first conference after the withdrawal of Indonesian troops during 15-20 May 2000. and spoke to survivors of the invasion who gave first hand accounts of the carnage as Indonesian Paratroopers descended on Dili I was particularly interested in that chapter of the book which dealt with Dr Kissinger's visit with President Ford to Indonesia which ended the day before the Indonesian Invasion. Hitchens account is certainly well researched and accurately detailed. His chapter on East Timor has added to my knowledge in his reporting of Constancio Pinto's and Allan Nairn's questions of him regarding his knowledge of the meeting with Soeharto during their visit. Kissingers answers serve as a chilling reminder of the power he possessed to affect the lives of unsuspecting human beings who believed the United States to be a Country which respected democracy and freedom
