United Nations Amb. Susan Rice discusses preventing genocide at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum

Click above for transcript and video. Excerpt on Rice discussing President Obama on the Darfur region genocide in Sudan, interviewed by Michael Abramowitz, who is the director of the museum's Committee on Conscience:

And the president's new policy for Sudan highlights, first of all, the importance he attaches to effective action. It balances three very important and simultaneous priorities: one, ending mass atrocities, killings, violence, genocide in Darfur; two, effectively implementing the North-South peace agreement, the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, so that the final stage of a just and fair referendum can occur and the people of Southern Sudan can determine their own future; and preventing Sudan from again serving as a safe haven for international terrorists, like Al Qaida.
