Darfur… still genocide

Gration

U.S. Special Envoy to Sudan Scott Gration (Reuters)

Special envoy to Sudan, General Scott Gration does not seem to be in-sync with the US State Dept.  This past Wednesday, after a series of visits with the government of Sudan, he released a statement saying

“What we see is the remnants of genocide. What we see are the consequences of genocide, the results of genocide.”

On the other hand, the Assistant Secretary of the US State Department said

“We continue to characterize the circumstances in Darfur as genocide,”

This clearly contradicts General Gration’s earlier statement.  Is there room for debate? Is the situation in Darfur genocide?

I think so.  And General Gration’s boss agrees.
