The crisis in Darfur

While Bush is trying to rehab his mojo, there is bad news from Sudan. The New York Times:
KHARTOUM, Sudan, Monday, May 1 — Sudan's government offered Sunday to accept a potentially historic Darfur peace agreement, but two of Darfur's three main rebel groups raised last-minute objections that left the negotiations mired in confusion as a midnight deadline passed. Mediators agreed to extend the talks for 48 hours at the request of the United States.
How will this hyper-moral president handle this crisis? The New York Times on Sunday's rallies: "Thousands Rally in Support of American Aid to Darfur"
