Once again -- the Obama administration is great just by "being"

This time, it seems the genocide in Darfur is over:

Special Envoy to Sudan Scott Gration's comments yesterday that Darfur is experiencing only the "remnants of genocide," thus implying the troubled region's worst violence is in the past, have exposed a deep disagreement on the matter within the Obama administration.

Just two days earlier US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice described the situation as "genocide" and at a press conference in Germany earlier this month President Obama used the phrase "ongoing genocide."

After Gration's comments yesterday, Rice was furious, according to US officials.

Jim Geraghty says, "Usually when you hear the phrase, 'the remnants of genocide' it's a sign that the killers have run out of victims."
