Liberal Democratic Humanitarianism

      Madeleine Albright, June 2005:
      She decried the country's lack of support for sub-Saharan black Africa, calling Rwanda a "volcanic" genocide and the current situation in the Darfur region of Sudan a "rolling genocide" that the United States must get involved in.

      "There's no excuse. The money we spend in one year in Iraq would pay for 20 years of helping Africa," she said.

      Madeleine Albright, January 2000:
      In a meeting last December, Albright suggested that, much as she deplored the country's suffering, "The human rights situation in Sudan is not marketable to the American people."  Sudan's Muslim government may condone the enslavement of black people from the south; it may have pursued a war that has cost nearly two million lives; it may regularly bomb schools and hospitals.  But Albright and one of her officials declined to call this "genocide," explaining that this might require the United States to do more about it.

      In case you've forgotten, Albright was Secretary of State in January of 2000.
