The New York Times are reporting that “Obama Drops Plans to Isolate Sudan Leaders”
Originally in Obama’s campaign, he promised to have a tough crackdown on Sudan, isolating the government and introducing tougher sanctions, which would pressure Sudan to end the crisis in Darfur. Now Obama has decided to go for a softer approach. The new plan is to offer more incentives to work at normalizing relations with President Omar al-Bashir, who has been charged with war crimes over the conflict in Darfur. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, US Ambassador Susan Rice, and Major General Scott Gration, Obama’s special envoy to Sudan will reveal the plan on Monday.
