President Bush told a Jewish audience that the international community must augment African Union forces in Darfur with U.N. and NATO troops. “We must understand that the rape and the murder and the suffering must be stopped, and that’s why I believe strongly that we must augment A.U. forces with a blue-helmeted U.N. force, with a NATO overlay, so that we can send a clear message to the leaders of Sudan,” Bush said at the American Jewish Committee’s 100th anniversary celebrations. Bush made his comments before a cease-fire in Sudan was announced last Friday.
