U.S. Intelligence Official Warns of Genocide in South Sudan

The United States Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair presented the annual threat assessment of the U.S. intelligence community to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.  This is tucked into page 37:

“Looking ahead over the next five years, a number of countries in Africa and Asia are at significant risk for a new outbreak of mass killing. All of the countries at significant risk have or are at high risk for experiencing internal conflicts or regime crises and exhibit one or more of the additional risk factors for mass killing. Among these countries, a new mass killing or genocide is most likely to occur in Southern Sudan. “
