Letter to
National Security Advisor Susan Rice
Sudan's bid for a U.N. Human Rights Council seat must be stopped. A regime wanted for genocide cannot be appointed as a world judge of human rights. We call on you, acting in concert with all nations of good will, to lead the effort to oppose and defeat this cynical and obscene candidacy.
