Interahamwe, ALIR, PALIR, Ex-FAR, ... it's Y2K
The Democratic Liberation Forces of Rwanda (FDLR) categorically deny that they are the political leadership of ALIR (the Armee de Liberation du Rwanda)
On September 30, 2002 US State Department Spokesman Richard Boucher alleged that the Democratic Liberation Forces of Rwanda (FDLR) are the political leadership of ALIR (Armee de Liberation du Rwanda) even though the political leadership of ALIR is PALIR (Peuple en Armes pour la Liberation du Rwanda).
The FDLR inform the international community, all their members living inside and outside Rwanda, and all friends of Rwanda that the FDLR have no contact whatsoever with ALIR or any terrorist organization in the Great Lakes of Africa or anywhere else. On several occasions since the creation of FDLR in May 2000, the FDLR leaders have stated both in public meetings, official letters and statements, and international media, radio and TV interviews that they are neither ALIR, nor Interahamwe, nor Ex-FAR.
