Stop going after the easy targets, guys

Mamdani and de Waal's frontal attack on Darfur advocacy seems (correct me if I'm wrong) to treat the media's telegenic fave power friend Samantha Power with kid gloves. Mamdani has one dismissive sentence about Power in his book. De Waal also slammed her once on his blog, back in October 2008. But that seems to be it, in 2 years of blogging about Darfur. Interesting that they don't seem to think she merits attention, given that her single opinion right now is probably worth more in terms of action than Save Darfur's $48m budget.
