Description

In two articles submitted on a free-lance basis to the Boston Globe and the Vermont Times (see story # 16096), the reporter traced how graduates from an elite New England military school were serving in East Timor around the time of heated conflict in Indonesia. Several high-ranking members of the Indonesian military's elite special forces who had been accused of human rights violations were linked to administrators at the school. The investigation called into question a United States presidential ban on cooperation with the Indonesian military, and led to the reporter's firing from a daily newspaper.
