Neil MacFarquhar on the Burmese Opposition Movement

Neil MacFarquhar is the New York Times bureau chief at the United Nations. In July 2009, he traveled to Burma to cover a trip there by U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. WIDE ANGLE host Aaron Brown interviewed him shortly after his visit to Burma. In this clip from the interview, they discuss opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi — her background, recent trial and future relevance.

MacFarquhar’s latest book, The Media Relations Department of Hizbollah Wishes You a Happy Birthday, was recently released by Public Affairs.
