Carry on up the Nile

At President Obama's news conference yesterday --

I felt responsible when kids were being shot by snipers [in Syria]. I felt responsible when millions of people had been displaced.  I feel responsible for murder and slaughter that’s taken place in South Sudan that’s not being reported on partly because there’s not as much social media being generated from there.

It's a bit ridiculous for him to be sniping that there's not as much reporting about the dire situation in South Sudan when (a) there's been nothing stopping him talking about South Sudan and (b) his last action on South Sudan was a dead-of-summer waiver for South Sudan from the Child Soldiers Prevention Act, with a new UNICEF report confirming that use of child soldiers remains pervasive in South Sudan.
