UN rules against charges of genocide in Darfur

Once more the United Nations has proven that it is little more then a sponge for US tax payer's money. The organization has released a report that concludes that no genocide is taking place in western Sudan despite the fact that government-backed militias supported by helicopter gunships are razing towns controlled by black Africans.
