This development isn't that surprising...

But it's a warning to everybody: "If you speak out against the government, your own and your family's lifes are in danger, so shut up!"

I was wondering why George looked so familiar to me: wearing glasses and reading a text. It just came to my mind: Have you seen '8', the play about Prop. 8? He looked exactly like there.

Article in the Mail on lifestyle of S. Sudanese general's son - with quotes and a fair amount of defiance

Well done, Daily Mail!

Interesting article, but I think with more than a touch of sour grapes. If her earlier articles had gotten more attention would she even be taking George to task? She seems angry at him for doing exactly what she tried to do.

Exactly Lizzy.

If those concerned (including her presumably) already knew what the situation was, it's a pity they didn't liaise with the right people to 'follow the money' over the last two years as The Sentry has done.

It's one thing knowing. But it's much better if you can do something about it.

And I could think of many instances like that around the world. Possibly the UN might be a good place to start........

I don't get her point. She's pointing out that his 'investigation' is getting more attention than her articles. She seems to be blaming George for the failures of others, and that she's not included in George's team now. I just don't get her point.

Fingers 
that's my assumption as well. And I also don't get why she blames George for that. Yes, he gets more attention for his announcements, but that's not his fault, and he uses his celebrity for good causes.

If her articles were so revealing why didn't they have any impact? She could have shared her findings with the Enough Project. She simplifies George and John's involvement with this cause. She mistakingly claims that those involved in advocating for South Sudan's independence were naive about how success could be achieved so easily.

Here is a Washington Post opinion written after the press conference a couple of weeks ago. A much more measured account. Note especially the 3rd and last paragraph.

PAN - Have you tried googling the Washington Post? Maybe if you go through Google you can backtrack to the article.

Here's an interesting response to Rita Abrahamsen:

A far more realistic response to the situation in South Sudan. Unfortunately Ms. Abrahamsen attempted to paint the situation with a very broad stroke without fully understanding the strategy of The Sentry's efforts to unveil the kleptocracy in South Sudan. And their efforts have brought a spotlight that unfortunately Abrahamsen's reporting has not.

Interesting. A former Deputy Minister of Defense. I like that he didn't dismiss George's contributions as unimportant, but places the blame for what's happening squarely on the people of his country - an opportunity wasted.

Mm, Lizzy, it gets even more interesting when you google his name and background!

I assumed that, as he's the former Deputy. I figured he was involved in the political scene to some extent but had his differences with some of the people in power.
