"… if we do not ask, if we do not question, if we do not witness, if we do not remember, and if we do not speak out when so-called “quiet diplomacy” goes unanswered, then we shall become part of the conspiracy of silence that only leads to greater tragedy.”
- John Bennett, U.S. Ambassador to Equatorial Guinea (1991-1994), farewell address, 1994
