I was most disheartened to listen to Shican Civ boast about his working for the 2 Bushies, leave Washington to work for the private sector not concerned about the ills this country' s human rights infractions. Give me a break. He is a right winger. Enough of his kind. No guilt, no nothing. Will not read his book. Would never support this guy.

How about Henry Kissinger, who is certainly a war criminal? How do Cambodians feel about him?
