Thank you, Mr. President

The Chairman of the International Policy Committee, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops expressed appreciation for the Administration’s leadership in working to secure an end to the terrible tragedy in Darfur. In a letter to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, he wrote:
“We asked for concerted U.S. leadership on Darfur and in the last few weeks the President and the Administration have provided it,” said Bishop Thomas G. Wenski. “Our bishops’ Conference knows that the road towards peace for the people of Darfur is long and uncertain and that this agreement could easily unravel without sustained U.S. and international attention. The Administration’s action to help forge this agreement was critical, however, and we are grateful for these efforts and others you have taken on behalf of the long-suffering people of Darfur.”
