MICHELE KELEMEN: The chairman of the congressionally-created U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom just came back from Sudan, painting, as he put it, a bleak picture.
Leonard Leo is worried about the fate of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, which ended the 20-year civil war between the Islamist in the north and the mainly Christian and animist rebels in the south. And he accused the Obama administration of standing on the sideline.
Mr. LEONARD LEO: There is a fist fight taking place between the north and the south, and there's a big group of people or countries standing around watching, but nobody's stepping in to break it up right now, and that's what's going on, and that's the problem. The rest of the world is going to take its signal from the United States. If we step in and try to create parity and fairness and equivalence in this process, other countries will step in as well.
