Mr. Prendergast spoke about the situation in the Darfur region of Sudan. He discussed the implications of labeling the events in Darfur “genocide,” and railed against the failures of both the U.S. and the U.N. to make a more assertive stance against the violence in Sudan.

He compared the current conditions and international response in Sudan to the situation in Rwanda in 1994. He described the international community’s lack of involvement in Darfur as “hypocritical” in light of statements made following the Rwandan genocide. He accused the Bush administration of repeated “obfuscation” and an unwillingness to take on the political battles that a more aggressive policy might entail. He labeled the President’s policy in Sudan as, “Punt, punt, punt.” He also spoke about some of the barriers to U.N. intervention in Sudan.

Following his remarks, Mr. Prendergast responded to audience questions. close
