Google Earth Shows Atrocities in Sudan

This story has been all over the news this week--with Google Earth satellite mapping service, we can now zoom in on the 1,600 Sudanese villages destroyed as part of the genocide that's been occurring in Darfur since 2003. Keep in mind that the images are not in real time. This article says that the images were captured between 2003 and 2006. But it's a start. And as the article states, it's one more critical tool in spreading awareness as reporters in Darfur are losing their access there.

good for the history books. i just read that bush is now holding off sanctions to sudan to see if the negotations going on right now change anything. i wish he would have done more of that in iraq.
