Obama in Accra...

"We must bear witness to the value of every child in Darfur and the dignity of every woman in Congo. No faith or culture should condone the outrages against them. All of us must strive for the peace and security necessary for progress... America has a responsibility to advance this vision, not just with words, but with support that strengthens African capacity. When there is genocide in Darfur or terrorists in Somalia, these are not simply African problems – they are global security challenges, and they demand a global response. That is why we stand ready to partner through diplomacy, technical assistance, and logistical support, and will stand behind efforts to hold war criminals accountable. And let me be clear: our Africa Command is focused not on establishing a foothold in the continent, but on confronting these common challenges to advance the security of America, Africa and the world."
I guess Obama hasn't read Mamdani or Funk and Fake... In fact, he sounds just like a Save Darfur advertisement. Samantha Power at work perhaps? But probably he's really controlled by Cheney, who "we" think is no longer vice-president, but "they" know that his forces linger in the "remnants" of the genocide.
