A United Nations-backed tribunal will soon be holding historic war crimes trials in Cambodia
The accused will be the surviving members of the Khmer Rouge government, which
is believed to have murdered more than one million people between 1975 and 1979.
The massacres, of course, were carried out in the name of creating a Utopian communist society.
I was a university student when these horrors were taking place and I remember having this left-wing political science professor who assured us that the news we had been hearing about the notorious Cambodian"killing fields" was actually a CIA hoax designed to discredit the heroic, anti-imperialist Khmer Rouge.
I sometimes wonder if that professor is still around.
And if he is, I wonder if he telling his students the 9/11 attacks were a CIA hoax.
Probably, old habits die hard.
