The midget intellectuals who regurgitate academic jargon about justice can go on and on dispensing academic judgments on poor little us, but my people, whom I know well, they applaud the wisdom of my policies — that is: heal the wounds, reconcile, and move on… I am not going to play Don Quixote de la Mancha of justice to pursue every seen or unseen culprit of the past.

I mean, wow. The wisdom of his policies. I don't know if JRH has been at the whiskey or what's been going on with him, but this story in the Irish Times came the day after Amnesty International sent out a press release stating that Ramos-Horta had done a 180 and decided he is now in favour of an international tribunal for human rights violations committed in Timor-Leste.

What is he thinking pulling this kind of stuff while he isn't even in the country? I at first wondered if Amnesty had misquoted him or maybe misinterpreted what he said, but I can't say either way for sure. Amnesty's press release doesn't mention when or where he made the comments and he isn't actually directly quoted, so we'll have to wait and see.

It looks like he is taking pot shots at the UN from afar. But he wasn't speaking up when indicted militia leader Maternus Bere was freed by Xanana Gusmao et al. Ramos-Horta was even involved in the freeing.

Answers on a postcard.
