Condoleezza Rice Threatens Sudan

While speaking about the Darfur crisis at the United Nations, the secretary of state warned the Sudanese government that “other measures” were available, should it continue to block a U.N. peacekeeping proposal.  Such measures are unlikely to include force, so long as the U.S. maintains troop levels in Iraq and Afghanistan while flirting with an invasion of Iran.

During her surprise visit with Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora in Beirut on Monday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice “assured a largely powerless leader that America was sympathetic to the suffering of his people, though it has stopped short of pressuring Israel to let up on its campaign against militants.” (story—quote on p. 2)

Truthdigger of the Day: Steve Almond

Almond, an adjunct professor at Boston College, has resigned his post to protest the college’s choice of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as commencement speaker. “I cannot, in good conscience, exhort my students to pursue truth and knowledge, then collect a paycheck from an institution that displays such flagrant disregard for both,” he writes.
