The Paul Kagame doctrine after 20 years

2014-04-23 - https://twitter.com/PaulKagameAfter 20 years, the silent terror of Paul Kagame’s regime continues. Domestically there is a lack of democracy.

Was Clinton's "no genocide" dictate on Rwanda meant to ensure Kagame's military victory in 1994?

2014-04-23 - http://capitolcommentary.com/2012/06/12/why-bill-clinton-was-successful-and-obama-isnt/By opposing the designation of the 1994 conflict in Rwanda as “genocide,” Clinton not only opposed armed intervention but helped the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) into power. Many developments show a US preference for an RPF military takeover instead of the upholding the Arusha Peace Accords
