Does Terrorism Trump Genocide in Sudan?

The LA Times covers the Bush administration’s dealings with Sudan, which seem to imply that in exchange for cooperation fighting terrorism, the Bush administration has taken a softer stance on genocide in Darfur. That’s a harsh claim to make, and I’m not sure I’m ready to buy it, but it does express a brutal reality. To what length do we go to get intelligence on terrorists? Does terrorism trump genocide?

Bleh. I realize it’s not an easy choice, but it certainly is ugly. Weighing lives is always a lose-lose game.

And have I mentioned how you can take action on Darfur? It’s as simple as sending an e-mail to your representatives.
