No More Emails from David Rubenstein
The New York Times reported today that David Rubenstein will step down from the Save Darfur Coalition's presidency.
Now the reason that was at the core of this move, according to some who were quoted, was that Rubenstein was not giving enough of the $15 million dollar annual budget was going to aid groups on the ground. I have no idea of what is going on in Darfur or Chad and could not question the brave aid workers and their critique. However with out spending money on the major ad campaigns, rallies and political hand shaking, no one would know where Darfur was on a map let alone who the Fur or Dinka or Janjeweed are and what they have to do with this genocide.
I wish Mr. Rubenstein all the best and I hope he can continue to make Americans see the problems of the rest of the world.
