The last few months in Sudan, we’ve lived under the shadow of the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) indictment of President Omar al-Bashir. Some of the Sudanese want to see him indicted, but others are afraid the ICC is stirring up big problems. They are tired of war and relish the current respite. Fear that a warrant for Mr. al-Bashir’s arrest would lead to further escalation of the conflict in Darfur or even fresh violence where we are in the south led the Government of Southern Sudan (GOSS) to stand behind President al-Bashir in rejecting the indictment. The African Union (AU) has also spoken out against the ICC’s charges of war crimes.

Anyway, I watched this CNN program focusing on Mr. al-Bashir and the indictment when I got back to the States, and thought some of you might find it interesting. At least it will better illuminate the political context in which we live.
