Obama Pushes Against Sudan Envoy Story

The White House is pushing back against a profile in the Washington Post of the Obama Administration’s Special Envoy for Sudan, Air Force Major General Scott Gration

Why would that be?

The story states that Gration wants the US to normalize relations with the Sudan, “the only country in the world led by a president indicted for war crimes,” a reference to President Omar Hassan al-Bashir.

“We would not take a step like that absent significant changes in conditions on the ground,” says a senior administration official.

No kidding. Did you hear that the violence in Darfur is going down but in south Sudan it’s going up? I imagine the mainstream media would rather tell you about Roman Polanski.
