Congressional Resolution Passes against Taylor

Douglas Farah reports on a Congressional Resolution that puts pressure on President Bush to put pressure on President Obasanjo of Nigeria to turn over Charles Taylor-ex-dictator of Liberia.

This resolution was passed by unanimous consent, which means they are serious about this. Congress holds the purse strings.

Charles Taylor is under indictment by Siera Leone for crimes against humanity. These are for actions that occured before and AFTER he was given assylum in Nigeria. He has broken his rules of the asylum, therefore he is no longer under asylum.

If you would like to read the whole story, you will find it here. It is an easy and good read. Congress and the Senate finally found something they can agree upon.

Update: Here is an update.
