The transcripts of the trial of Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia. More…

Thank you. And I just want to quote to you something you yourself have written and I would like you to explain what you meant by it and I am looking at the foreword that you wrote to Mark Huband's book:

"From the creation of the country" - that's Liberia - "in 1847 the United States was the big brother of a pitiful alter ego, the powerful guardian of a land which received its former slaves. On the beaches of Monrovia, American aid was handed out with no accounting as if to settle a debt with the past."

What did you mean by that?
