TED: Power on a Complicated Hero

Samantha Power tells a story of a hero, Sergio Vieira de Mello. This UN diplomat walked a thin moral line, negotiating with the world's worst dictators to help their people survive crisis.

Power is author of the (must read) book "A Problem from Hell", in which she offers a disturbing examination of 20th-century acts of genocide and U.S responses to them.
