A Forgotten Genocide

My last post at here was in regard to the forgotten genocide in Darfur. Just how forgotten is it? While two Sundays ago David Gregory interviewed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Meet the Press. The interview lasted for one hour  and most of it was obviously centered on issues of United States foreign policy. Not one question regarding Darfur was asked by Mr. Gregory during that interview. Mrs. Clinton did not bring the issue of Darfur In a Darfur refugee campup either. Thus we have traveled a long way on Darfur. About three years ago Darfur was still on the political map if just barely. Periodically the news media did pick it up. Now the silence is almost universal. I guess that this is just a symptom of our times.
