What will we find in Sudan?

David Morse, for the Pulitzer Center

The more I learn about my traveling companions, the deeper the question becomes. What will we find in Sudan?

Each day spent here in Nairobi has been an eye-opening experience, as we go through the process of making decisions - How many mosquito nets are enough for two villages? How do we weigh the cost of getting these supplies into the bush against our collective ability to pay?

Who are we? What is this process really about? And who are we as a team?

TIA

Jen Marlowe, for the Pulitzer Center

We sat in the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) office in Nairobi as minutes stretched into hours, awaiting our permits to travel into South Sudan.

A line from the movie I had watched last night on the plane traveling from London to Nairobi kept running through my mind. The movie was "Blood Diamonds"; the line was delivered by Leonardo DiCaprio: "TIA," he told a journalist, as his means to explain the brutality and bloodshed of the Sierra Leone civil war. "This is Africa."

David Enders interviewed on Foreign Exchange

Fareed Zakaria interviewed David Enders on Foreign Exchange. Just back from Iraq, David describes a stagnating, often deteriorating security situation, a central government unable to provide basic services to Iraqi citizens, and the rise of militias as the real authority in many areas. The interview is a sobering counterpoint to recent official reports from the region and is, in our view, essential viewing as the Bush administration presents its much-touted "progress report" on Iraq.
