Mr. Bashir threatened to oust the international election observers, saying, "if they interfere in our affairs, we will cut their fingers off, put them under our shoes and throw them out".
Could the image of a pile of bloody fingers be the reason both the European Union and Carter Center observers declared that the elections "fall short of meeting international standards" , but did not openly condemn the sham election? The observers had the opportunity and moral obligation to speak out on behalf of those in Darfur and other parts of Sudan whose voices are not being heard.The Carter Center should go spine shopping.
