Progress Report, 5/27/05: GUANTANAMO BAY, Larry DiRita’s Disgraceful Deception; SUDAN, Bush Backs Away – American Progress Action Fund: “One reason the administration is edging away from its pledge to fight the genocide in Sudan: The White House wants to count Sudan as an ally against terrorism. The Los Angeles Times recently reported the Bush administration is maintaining a clandestine friendship with Sudanese intelligence leader Maj. Gen Salah Abdallah Gosh, who is also playing a ?key role? in directing the slaughter in Darfur. Just last month, the CIA ferried Gosh to Washington ‘for secret meetings sealing Khartoum’s sensitive and previously veiled partnership with the administration.’ Here?s the bottom line: The president has acknowledged the fight against terrorism is going to last several generations; the White House must learn to get what it needs from the Pakistans, Uzbekistans, and Sudans of this world without abandoning wholesale the values that are allegedly driving White House policy.”
