ACTION ALERT!

The U.S. Special Envoy to Sudan, Maj. Gen. Scott Gration (Ret.), appeared before the Senate Foreign R

elations Committee on May 12 to brief lawmakers on developments as the country prepares for a critical referendum in January 2011 that is likely to split Africa’s largest country in two.

Senators John Kerry (D-Mass) and Roger Wicker (R-Miss) did the right thing in demanding more direct involvement from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Ambassador Susan Ric

e on this issue.  With a faltering peace process, increased violence in Darfur, rising tensions in the South, and the looming referendum—strong U.S. leadership is desperately needed. Absent the necessary conditions for a peaceful referendum, U.S. policy on Sudan demands the sustained attention of policymakers at the highest levels of our government, including President Obama, Secretary Clinton, and Ambassador Rice.
