Not Very Reassuring Sudan News 

The New York Times reports that the Sudanese government says it will crack down on the Janjaweed in Darfur. As Chris Young notes, however, the Times for some reason neglects to mention that Khartoum has basically zero credibility on this issue. More on this story later today. In the meantime, I'd just like to add that basically this "article" appears to be a press release rather than journalism, and that the headline, "Sudan to Disarm Militias," just reinforces this impression.
