ma, dont compare ellen to PYJ. totally different roles and positions. ellen's image re war activities was created and reinforced by taylor who assumed that liberians would vote against him for his role in the war. when we voted for him in 1997, he had already done the damage to her reputation and it is difficult to shake off.
ellen got dryface and is not a saint but she is not a brutal killer or a killer for that matter. she supported taylor initially, like a large percentage of liberians who were frustrated with doe's presidency. but she can never be compared to yadugbay. never.
i think she shd have dealt with the findings from the TRC report before the announcement.
if u have not read her book, do so. i can send it to u. so much to the woman than we know. some of the info make her real and human-a true survivor in a male dominated world!
