TO UNDERSTAND RWANDA'S TRAGEDY: The neglected account of Captain Amadou Deme Senegalese soldier, UN intelligence officer, and witness with a conscience.
Phil Taylor

April 6 1994 is the fateful date of the beginning of the war/genocide/massacres in Rwanda. The plane of President Habyarimana was shot down over the capital city, Kigali, and horrific violence unfolded.

Everyone is asked/ordered to remember (and then told what to remember). Official memory in Rwanda is under the authority of the former Ugandan General and now Rwandan President Paul Kagame, warmly supported by prominent names from the Anglosphere like America's UN ambassador, Samantha Powers (she was not a witness but has no trouble filling pages at great length about the vast lessons to be learned).

On the night of the 6th Kagame, by all accounts, ordered his Rwandan Patriotic Forces (RPF) into attack that very same night, though there was a peace accord in pl...

Adam Jones on Rwanda and Genocide: A Reply
Edward S. Herman and David Peterson

Like Gerald Caplan's hostile "review" of our book, The Politics of Genocide, Adam Jones's aggressive attack on our response to Caplan can be explained in significant part by Jones's deep commitment to an establishment narrative on the Rwandan genocide that we believe to be false -- one that misallocates the main responsibility for that still ongoing disaster, but dominates by virtue of political interests and intellectual conformity.1  Caplan devoted perhaps 5 percent of his "review" to our book, and the remaining 95 percent to an attack on us for our treatment of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.  But Jones went Caplan one better, ignoring our book altogether (which at the time of his writing Jones did not appear to ha...

Genocide Denial and Genocide Facilitation: Gerald Caplan and The Politics of Genocide
Edward S. Herman and David Peterson

In his June 17 "review" of our book The Politics of Genocide, for Pambazuka News,1 Gerald Caplan, a Canadian writer who Kigali's New Times described as a "leading authority on Genocide and its prevention,"2 focuses almost exclusively on the section we devote to Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.3  Caplan s

ICTR-ADAD NEWS ADVISORY: Rwandan Military Leaders Found Not-Guilty of Conspiracy and Genocide Planning
Association des Avocats de la Defence - Association of Defense Lawyers

ARUSHA TZ – 18/12: Today’s ICTR judgments in the Military-I trial completely rejected the Prosecution theory of long-term planning and conspiracy to commit genocide by members of the former Rwandan military leadership. All four defendants were found “not guilty” of all counts charging conspiracy to commit genocide, based on the Chambers ruling that their actions prior to April 6, 1994 were based on war-time conditions, not planning to kill civilians or to carry out a genocide against Tutsi Rwandans.

Gen. Gratien Kabiligi was found not guilty of all remaining charges because of the Prosecution’s failure to prove his command authority over Rwandan troops, and was ordered released immediately.

The three other defendants were convicted of responsibility for pa...
