I was working out at the gym last night when I saw this interview by Ann Curry of NBC re. the genocide in Sudan. Did anyone else catch it?
Ann Curry: Mr. President, I have this map from the U.S. Department of State that shows more than a thousand villages in the Darfur region — more than a thousand burned.So here's Curry, one of the few Americans who gives a damn about Darfur (to her credit, she seemed genuinely and sincerely concerned about it), and this guy throws Iraq in her face. After all, America's trumped up charges about foreign governments before ... it now has no credibility.
And the question is, how can this be done by Arab militias without the support of the Sudanese government? This is shocking.
Omar al-Bashir: What do you think about the picture that Colin Powell presented before the national security that confirmed and illustrated the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? What do you think about it?
Curry: You're saying this is not true?
Al-Bashir: This picture is the same fabrication and the same picture as the ones Colin Powell presented about Iraq.
Hope you're happy, Cheney.
