South Sudan Offers ‘Unique And Exceptional Role For Principled American Leadership’

Washington Post: How Obama is losing South Sudan
Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), a leading congressional expert on Sudan who has traveled to the region six times since 1989

“…With South Sudan racked by violence that has displaced thousands and prompted rumors of mass graves, many people who have spent years working on this issue, myself included, are grieved at the prospect of a country at the brink of catastrophic war — not simply because of the human suffering it represents but because of the unfulfilled promise that is South Sudan. … Clearly, there is a vital role for the international community in the days to come. But there is also a unique and exceptional role for principled American leadership. Obama must meet this crisis with the urgency, the ingenuity and the moral clarity it demands” (1/10).
