RIGHTS GROUPS EXPRESS SERIOUS CONCERNS WITH OBAMA’S CURRENT POLICY ON SUDAN | Act For Sudan.

Dear Mr. President:

We urge you to adopt and immediately implement a new pro-democracy and civilian protection-oriented policy on Sudan that holistically addresses the root cause of Sudan’s multiple conflicts: the repressive and genocidal Sudan regime.

In 2007, you said that genocide is “a stain on our souls” and promised, “As president of the United States, I don’t intend to abandon people or turn a blind eye to slaughter.”

However, under your leadership, the current U.S. policy on Sudan has failed to prevent the tragic loss of countless civilian lives and the mass displacement and starvation of countless more innocent people. The U.S. policy on Sudan must change in order to change the political calculations of the government of Sudan.  Without a shift in U.S. policy, the suffering of the people of Sudan will surely continue, and, we fear, your presidency will ultimately be remembered as one stained by genocide, much as President Clinton’s legacy is stained by the genocide in Rwanda. <…>
