Andrew Natsios, Distinguished Professor in the Practice of Diplomacy, on the Obama administration and U.S. efforts to stop Sudan's slide toward civil war:
"What Sudan needs is a set of political deals to stitch the country back together before the state collapses. Advocacy groups that claim continuing genocide are under assault by respected scholars of Africa, such as Mahmood Mamdani and Alex de Waal, and they are retreating from their insistence during the Bush administration on military intervention in Darfur. But while many now claim to support a negotiated political settlement, they simultaneously undermine efforts to talk."
