This is overwhelming. Sudan President Bashir has slaughtered millions in a jihad against Christians, non-believers and moderate Muslims in Sudan. Bashir's government is designated a "state sponsor of terrorism" by the State Department.
What about the US diplomat, 33 year-old John Michael Granfield, who was assassinated in Khartoum? That was an al qaeda attack, right
out of the al-Qaeda playbook. That is no accident either, Al Qaeda terrorists are already entrenched in Sudan. Sudan sought Al Qaeda's help to fight the peacekeepers in Darfur.
Obama unnervingly, unblinkingly errs on the side of evil. It's his default mode.
WASHINGTON – The Obama administration plans to roll out a new policy toward Sudan with an eye toward engaging the government in Khartoum but also warning that continued violence in Darfur will result in penalties, U.S. officials said Friday.
Susan Rice, and the administration's special Sudan envoy, Scott Gration, are to unveil the policy Monday at a news conference at the State Department, the officials said., the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations,
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because Congress has not yet been briefed on the matter.
Instead, the new policy is designed to bring Khartoum into the fold by offering incentives for improved relations for improvements in the situation in Darfur as well as in southern Sudan, which will hold a referendum on succession scheduled to take place in 2011, they said.
The Darfur conflict began in February 2003 when ethnic African rebels took up arms against the Arab-dominated Sudanese government in Khartoum, claiming discrimination and neglect.
U.N. officials say the war has claimed at least 300,000 lives from violence, disease and displacement. They say some 2.7 million people were driven from their homes and at its height, in 2003-2005, it was called the world's worst.
