Bush and Africa

Clarice Feldman
In probably the least read edition of the year, the Washington Post informs us of the President's unprecedented aid to Africa. Katheryn Lopez of NRO's the Corner contrasts this report with Edwards' jaw flapping on the subject, but it could just as well be a feature for ourMissing Headlines series:
On This Week yesterday, John Edwards said: "But the genocide, global poverty, the spread of HIV/AIDS, the atrocities that are occurring in northern Uganda, there are a whole range of places that America would have basically universal support if we showed some leadership."

The Washington Post reports: "The president has tripled direct humanitarian and development aid to the world's most impoverished continent since taking office and recently vowed to double that increased amount by 2010 - to nearly $9 billion." - (Bush Has Quietly Tripled Aid to Africa, by Michael A. Fletcher, Washington Post, December 31, 2006 )
