It was being run by his cronies, by his business partners, by his colonels and generals.
I don't know where he went. The idea was that all Hutus should participate in killing of Tutsis. We failed to act and must take part of the blame. For those who set about systematically exterminating an entire people--even a fairly small and unresisting subpopulation of perhaps a million and a quarter men, women, and children, like the Tutsis in Rwanda--blood lust surely helps. This remarkable debut book chronicles what has happened in Rwanda and neighboring states since 1994, when the Rwandan government called on everyone in the Hutu majority to murder everyone in the Tutsi minority.

Philip Gourevitch's book is a history of the genocide's background, a horrible account of what happened, and what it meant to survive the aftermath. What was the decision process behind such a ridiculous and cowardly move? And reality doesn't allow that fantasy much room, sadly. The dead looked like pictures of the dead.
