Professor: Eight million Africans died in wars financed by US, UK Special

By Ann Garrison     Mar 25, 2010 in Politics
Law Professor Peter Erlinder, Lead Defense Counsel for the International Criminal Tribunal on Rwanda, says without hesitation that the UK and the US have financed Central African wars in which eight million Africans have died.
As a law professor, and Lead Defense Counsel for the International Criminal Tribunal on Rwanda, Professor Erlinder is very careful to be sure he has evidence at hand to prove any statement he stands by and he says the evidence for his claim is all here, in his Rwanda Documents Project,
He knows he's on the Rwanda Hit List that journalist and human rights investigator Keith Harmon Snow reported last week, but said that he's expendable because the documents are all there.
He also said that if there had been any international reporters at the ICTR in 2009 when the court ruled that there was no conspiracy to commit genocide in Rwanda, in 1994, the received history of the genocide and Rwandan President Paul Kagame's ruling Rwandan Patriotic Front's justification would have crumbled.
Digital Journal told Professor Erlinder that Kagame had compared the Rwanda Genocide to 09/11 when talking to Christiane Amanpour on CNN last week, and he said, "That would be ironic indeed, wouldn't it? If 9/11 really were a false flag," meaning a false history to rally around, like the received history of the Rwanda Genocide.
But, he didn't want to comment on 09/11 beyond that, without proof in hand. He's a lawyer.
