WHY AREN'T THEY DEMANDING THAT THE UR RESIGN...?:
The Ingratiator: Fire Sudan envoy Scott Gration. (The Editors, November 5, 2009, New Republic)
Scott Gration is an embarrassment. As Barack Obama's special envoy to Sudan, Gration has a dual mission: to help win justice and peace for the nearly three million Darfuris who currently live in camps after being subjected to genocide by Sudan's government; and to prevent that same odious government from initiating another slaughter in southern Sudan, where a 2005 peace agreement is looking more tenuous by the day.
How is he doing? Since taking the job in March, Gration has gone about ingratiating himself to the Sudanese government--an odd choice given that the government is a genocidal one
...since his entire foreign policy is based on ingratiating himself with dictators, genocidal or not? Posted by Orrin Judd at November 8, 2009 5:19 AM
