Our Secretary of State (for at least a little while longer) demonstrates his moral cowardice in Sudan: Powell Avoids Question on Sudan Genocide (

But with Sudan's first vice president, Ali Uthman Muhammad Taha, at his side, Powell sidestepped a question by a reporter about to whether he believed Sudan is still conducting genocide in the region. "It was my judgment that genocide was taking place," said Powell, who is in Nairobi to witness the signing Sunday of a comprehensive accord to end an unrelated conflict in southern Sudan. "I haven't seen the Secretary-General's latest report, but I look forward to examining it."

So now we're deferring to the UN on whether genocide has been and continues to be committed in Sudan?
