Clinton Discusses Sudan Policy on Meet the Press

Posted by Laura Heaton on May 4, 2010

Meet the Press host David Gregory closed out Sunday’s interview with Secretary of State Clinton with a question about Sudan, asking her to respond to a point made by Nick Kristof in a recent column: “When a man who has been charged with crimes against humanity tells the world that America is in his pocket, it’s time to review your policy.”

Clinton’s response emphasized the need for Sudan’s Omar al- Bashir to be brought to justice, and she explained that she doesn’t believe that isolating Sudanese president will yield positive results. The United States is working closely with the U.K., Norway, and regional partners to manage what Clinton called an ‘immensely complicated’ and ‘explosive’ situation, though Clinton admitted that she isn’t satisfied with the results thus far.
