article imageIsakson likely to replace Feingold as U.S. Senate's Africa Chair

By Ann Garrison     Nov 4, 2010 in Politics
This week's electoral backlash in the U.S.A., gave Republicans a majority in the House of Representatives and cost liberal Democratic Senator Russ Feingold, among others, his seat.
Feingold is the only Senator who voted against the draconian U.S.A. Patriot Act, and is also the author of the Feingold Statement on the Fragile State of Democracy in Africa, which he read into the Congressional Record on Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010. He was also Chair of the Senate Subcommittee on African Affairs.

Feingold's replacement as Chair of the Africa Subcommittee is expected to be Georgia Republican Johnny Isakson, who identifies as anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage rights, and pro-gun rights, and, opposes taxation for social welfare but supports the U.S. Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which the Center for Defense Information estimates will cost U.S. taxpayers $1.08 trillion by the end of 2010.

Isaakson describes the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as defensive responses to the 09.11.2001 attacks in New York City, and, as reported on rock star Bono's ONE campaign website, advocates the complete deployment of African Union troops, which are, most of all, Rwandan army troops, in Sudan, to protect the people of Darfur, but without mention of the UN Mapping Report, which implicates the same army in war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide in the Democratic Republic of Congo. And, without mention of Darfur's vast oil reserves.
