Back to the War Tribunal tomorrow. Not sure what’s on the agenda – you’re never quite sure – but I’ll be live-tweeting per usual and will hopefully get to you/the Internet/the free world a brief blog wrap-up of the day.
In lieu of more substantive content, here’s some cool junk I found on the Internet today:
I have been convinced by Chomsky fans to read at least ONE of his books. Somewhat grudgingly. I will do it anyway. I think it’s easy to find Manufacturing Consent in Phnom Penh so I will begin there.
What a sad day for India, which has built up something of a reputation for a free, if extremely fractious, press. Especially embarrassing in such an Internet savvy nation. I’ll be researching this more tomorrow.
Cambodian RCAF general locked up and tortured by family – mostly his wife, it seems – as they attempted to extort money from him. In the midst of upper class Tuol Kork in Phnom Penh, no less. What a creepy tale.
A truly eery transcript of the final minutes of Air France Flight 447, which disappeared mysteriously in 2009. Worth a read if you’re a bit of an aviation buff. Also, if you are someone who is perhaps entirely too fond of that National Geographic: Air Crash INVESTIGATION show.
Brian Calvert reports on Taliban propaganda from Afghanistan. Go Calvert. Great reporter and former member of the Phnom Penh press mafia (or, uh, whatever the hell we are.)
