Freedom from fear. A generation has been born and raised the world over since Sudan held elections. This week, the people of this war-torn country voted. The Obama Administration proclaimed the elections would be as “free and fair as possible.” Genocidaire and Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir no doubt enjoyed such legitimization. After all, if the American president is willing to legitimize the election via U.S. envoy Scott Gration, Bashir demonstrated hubris and confidence that the do-gooders would be silenced, or muffled as he continues to engage with partner Scott Gration, as their razzle-dazzle diplomatic dance obscures his intentions. His record. The truth of genocide, the gerrymandering of districts throughout Sudan, the rampant corruption, occasional kidnap of Aid workers, the unreported rapes and murders of his opponents, and so many more crimes against humanity.

Not so fast, Mr. Bashir. Because President Obama has not been so forceful as some had hoped does not mean the whole of the human rights community will be muffled or silenced. Maybe that is how it works in Khartoum but that is not reflective of life in the free world.
