“We booked the flight route via Morocco … we booked a hotel,” [President Bashir] said, adding that it was his right to attend the UN assembly. [from AlJazeera]
What Sudan’s President Bashir did NOT say is whether the USA has granted him a visa or not. I hope the USA does grant him one. I would LOVE to talk to President Bashir. Apparently he and his representatives are very unhappy with all my blog postings here on GretaWire about his killing of innocents in Nuba Mountains. I would like to talk to him about it. He can’t deny it to me — I saw it with my own eyes and I have all the pics.
And why should USA grant him a visa? Not just because I want to talk to him but because it would put the spotlight on his atrocities….on his indictment in the ICC for genocide etc. His presence here in USA would draw a great deal of media attention and this is needed. We need more information out there about him – not less.
