Scream Bloody Murder – The Khmer Rouge

I came across this excellent, short (7 minutes each) CNN Report, called Scream Bloody Murder – The Khmer Rouge and the Cambodian Genocide. It’s in two parts and deals with the Khmer Rouge, their rise and fall from power, including the US’s support for them keeping their UN seat after they’d been deposed, and it also contains some comments from Jimmy Carter.
A lot of it (more eloquently) recites points made in one of my recent articles and of course this is all relevant to the plot of my novel BACK.
The Report is a well-balanced account containing some harrowing footage, and Part 2 films a visit to the Killing Fields with a former Khmer Rouge cadre who actually killed people there.

See the trailer for our new film, M.I.A. A Greater Evil. Set in the jungles of Laos and Vietnam, the film deals with the possible fate of US servicemen left behind after the US pulled out of the Vietnam War.
