Darfur is “concerning”

The Save Darfur Coalition recently took out a full page ad in the Waco Tribune-Herald, near the President’s home, urging him to push for the use of UN peacekeeping forces and to appoint an envoy to the region. To date, the Bush administration has acknowledged that an act of genocide has occurred in Darfur, but has been reluctant to get involved and put a stop to it.

Perhaps the most telling quote from the administration came from State Department spokesman Sean McCormack, who said – “People have lost their lives and that’s concerning.” He was, of course, referring to the death of Western aid workers rather than the hundreds of thousands of residents in Darfur who have already lost their lives.
