Priscilla Clapp, former US Chargé d’Affaires to Burma comes out as defender of genocide against Rohingya

This video posted as a comment is worth highlighting. It’s a recent interview with Priscilla Clapp who served as US Chargé d’Affaires in Burma from 1999 to 2002. After the brutal crackdown on the democracy movement of 1988, the US lowered its level of diplomatic representation from Ambassador to Chargé d’Affaires. She served before the US had fully implemented sanctions against Burma for human rights crimes. Clapp’s analysis here more than answers the question “where does the US stand on the Rohingya genocide?” even though she no longer serves as a US diplomat but for the Asia Society. She comes from the same school of diplomacy & deceit as Henry Kissinger.

It was during Obama’s tenure that most sanctions against Burma were lifted so that the US could invest in neoliberal scorched earth economic policies instituted by the military which controls the economy & government of Burma.
