Eat this cooperation, Bashir

Franklin Graham has a pretty skewed sense of the word “cooperate,” when it comes to Omar al-Bashir of Sudan.

For all his faults, Mr. Bashir has demonstrated that he is able to cooperate. On several occasions he has complied with my requests. When a hospital we operated in eastern Sudan was seized by government forces, Mr. Bashir granted us limited access. Mr. Bashir also made television time available for us to broadcast a Christian program at Christmas and Easter.

He gave you limited access to your own hospital that he seized with his government forces? And I’m really sure that all the Darfuris that he was busy directing his proxies to kill and displace really appreciated those Christian broadcasts.

Bashir showed off his cooperative instinct today when he told the ICC the “eat” the warrant for his arrest that it will be presenting tomorrow.

UPDATE: I somehow missed the part in the op-ed where Graham suggests that we don’t need the ICC because we have God.
