Because Intern Chris is trying to move to California in the middle of a snowstorm today, I’m posting some things that made Amanda and I say “WTF?” this week:
- Can basketball solve the Sudan crisis? We think no, Senator Brownback says yes. (hattip to Tom, and also to Andrew)
- El Superjuez is in danger! A Spanish judicial panel is considering charges against Judge Baltasar Garzón for his efforts to investigate the Spanish Civil War.
- Former Special Court for Sierra Leone prosecutors David Crane and Alan White form consulting firm, get hired by Guinea’s military junta, investigate recent alleged atrocities, produce report detailing significantly fewer violations and lower level of government responsibility than contemporaneous UN and human rights org reports. Hmm. (via Foreign Policy’s Turtle Bay blog)
