Catholic Relief Services urges presidential action in Sudan

July 13, 2011

Catholic Relief Services has issued an “action alert” urging President Barack Obama to give greater priority to the needs of Sudan.

Citing attacks by the Khartoum government on civilians in the regions near South Sudan, the relief agency is calling upon the president “to focus his Administration’s efforts to work with both leaders in the north and the south of Sudan to provide basic protection for civilians, allow humanitarian organizations and humanitarian aid to reach all populations in need, and monitor more closely the violence and displacement across the disputed border region between northern and southern Sudan.”

    Believe me, you don't want Obama in this mix. Most likely he'd send a century's worth of condoms and call the problems solved. If your headaches involve Muslim terrorists, don't assume he'd be on your side.
