I want to commend you for truly great edition of the Post (January 30). It is one
of the most significant snapshots of the tragedy that is Cambodian politics I have
Georgia Ditton's death list of heroes is breath-taking. As I was reading it I wondered
why it affected me so much and then I realised that I knew each of the people killed.
Vichea was my dear friend and we go back to the March 30,1997 grenade attack slaughter.
I also worked with Radsady since the early 90s.
I plan to show this edition of the Post to everyone in Washington I can buttonhole.
I just can't believe they know the awful truth about the danger of being a pro-democracy
activist in Cambodia. Everyone in the international community calls on the Cambodian
government to investigate these killings. What a joke; it's like asking the fox with
bloody feathers on his lips to condemn the act of chicken stealing.
You have been the one main voice of reason through all this nastiness and I for one
take my hat off to you. You speak the truth, which is the highest compliment I can
pay to anyone.
