Will the US Do Anything about Darfur?

Hosted by

Since the International Criminal Court indicted President Omar Hassan al-Bashir for war crimes in Darfur, conditions in the Sudanese region have deteriorated. Five million people there relied on foreign assistance for food, shelter and protection from fighting between rebels and government-backed forces. Humanitarian agencies have been expelled, leaving what President Obama has called “a void that will be filled by deprivation and despair.” Will the President's new special envoy, retired Air Force General Scott Gration, be able to make a difference?
