Editor's Response

Schuler has a point. Thayer faxed the raw transcript of the text of Khieu Samphan interview from Bangkok without

his questions. While the text accurately reflected the content of the interview, it did not accurately reflect

the questions posed. The interview should have been presented under topical categories rather than as a question

and answer. We regret the editing error.

Thayer responds: "I've been called a puppet lackey, an intelligence operative, a right wing jerk, a communist

sympathizer, and a hopeless drunk, but I have never been called a creampuff and I resent it."
