Há Comissões e Comissões. A CAVR faz parte do pequeno número das insuspeitas. Confere peso ao que se sabia, que cinco administrações americanas facilitaram o genocídio em Timor. Aqui Ana Gomes tem razão, como tem razão o nosso André Bandeira a quem a Noruega condecorou pelo que fez pelos direitos humanos em Timor. As estimativas da CAVR são de 100.000 a 180.000 mortos por fome e abate. Mas outros estão no rol dos culpados. A novidade é exigir reparações das empresas de armamento que concorreram para o massacre.

The Commission report, entitled "Chega!" ("Enough" in Portuguese), estimates that up to 180,000 East Timorese were killed by Indonesian troops or died of enforced starvation and other causes resulting from the occupation between 1975 and 1999. The "Responsibility" chapter details the primary role of the Indonesian military and security forces, as well as the supporting roles played by Australia, Portugal, the United States, the United Nations, the United Kingdom, and France.The report (p. 92) finds that "U.S. supplied weaponry was crucial to Indonesia's capacity to intensify military operations from 1977 in its massive campaigns to destroy the Resistance in which aircraft supplied by the United States played a crucial role." Moreover, "U.S. Administration officials refused to admit that the primary reason that East Timorese were dying in their thousands was the security policies of the Indonesian military."The CAVR used more than 1,000 formerly secret U.S. documents provided by the National Security Archive's Indonesia and East Timor Documentation Project, which published on the Web in November 2005 several of the key documents detailing U.S. support for the invasion and occupation of East Timor across five U.S. administrations.T
