    With all do respect, being from Chile we know and we have lived CIA intervention, for good or for bad. Giving power and exercising power are two distinct things, in my opinion.

    Response to this comment:
    Re: Who is really responsible?

    Looks like you've hit the nail on the old head there.
    Not to detract from this film at all but it must be pointed out that the West had a lot to do with bringing Pol Pot to power and supporting him in much the same way as CIA meddeling in Afganistan during the Soviet occupation helped create the recent problems over there.
    I have to wonder how much more of this "Aftermath from the Cold War" will come out as more and more files are released.
    It is widely claimed in the Media now that the West won the cold war and I don't dispute that or condemm it (I am a Westener and fairly anti-soviet myself) but I do ask...what was/is the true cost to humanity?
