Criminal Financial Support for the Khartoum Regime: A Last Chance for U.S. Justice for the People of Sudan | Eric Reeves

Gayle Smith, who has long worked as a senior Africa specialist in the Obama administration’s National Security Council, was recently confirmed by the Senate to be the new head of the U.S. Agency for International Development (the agency had long been without a permanent Administrator). Smith has long worked on Sudan and knows both Sudan and South Sudan extremely well. She is also well aware of what is occurring in Darfur … the catastrophe in Darfur–twelve years later–has recently seen genocidal destruction again rise to fever pitch. The Khartoum regime “continues to act with impunity against its own people.” Despite this, USAID Administrator Smith has a chance to help the people of Darfur and Sudan in a different way: responding to the urgent humanitarian crises facing millions of Sudanese, and seeing justice done in distributing massive restitution funds from the U.S. criminal conviction of French banking giant BNP Paribas.
