You are so full of ****. The logs of the pilots who droped those bombs were changed and doctored, the pilots were sworn to secrecy not to tell their supervisors. Nobody, including top brass, even knew what was going on in Cambodia. It wasn't until the top secret files were released in a Freedom of Information Act request, that people even knew of the genocide committed.
