The debate about whether or not Darfur (Sudan) was the site of genocide long ago flamed out, largely because the issue became excessively politicized and the world -- in general -- no longer cared about how we referred to continuing ethnically-targeted destruction in Darfur.

President Obama made a promise to the people of Darfur: "We can't say 'never again' and allow it to happen again. As President of the United States, I don't intend to abandon people or turn a blind eye to slaughter." Well, Mr. President, that's exactly what's happening.
