Inner City Press: As Obama’s Speech Omits Sudan, Susan Rice Says Jobs Come First, Gration on Case

Were they misreading the omission of Sudan and genocide from the lengthy speech as reflecting a lessing of commitment on these issues by the Obama administration?

Yes, Ambassador Rice said, this is a misinterpretation. She said the speech has correctly focused on jobs and the American economy, not every foreign policy issue could be mentioned. She said the Administration remains “deeply committed,” and mentioned for the second time this week the work of U.S. envoy on Sudan Scott Gration. Video here, transcript below.

Trying to reassure activists disappointed by Obama’s not saying anything about genocide prevention in the State of the Union address.
