Panel urges creation of genocide alert system
"Preventing genocide and mass atrocities is a truly difficult issue, and there has to be a different approach," Madeleine Albright, the former secretary of state and a co-chairwoman of the task force, said in a telephone interview. The challenge, she said, is"to develop a system within the United States government where there will be a group of people whose main job it will be to stay on top of these particular issues."
Albright is an Obama supporter and adviser. Also on the panel is a close political adviser of the president-elect, Tom Daschle, the former Senate majority leader, who is said to be Obama's choice for secretary of health and human services. The group consulted several people linked to the Obama team.
