Rwandan president: “Hotel Rwanda” a “rewrite” of history

Astonishing claims today out of Africa, where Rwandan president Paul Kagame dimissed “Hotel Rwanda” as a “rewrite” of history. hotel_rwanda.jpg

More, per Reuters, the president “said people in the hotel were saved in part because U.N. forces occupied the hotel and because the killers wanted to keep it as a place where they could drink beer after a long day of killing and discuss whom to kill the following day.”

Initially, we thought of making a glib comment about Hutus bearing a striking resemblance to Endeavor agents putting away Heinekens at the Four Seasons, but realized that that would be going too far, and promptly recoiled from it.

Now we’re just plain horrified all over again.
