Failure of Leadership in South Sudan

USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah and others wrote in Foreign Policy on 21 August 2014 that pending disaster in South Sudan is due to "an abject failure of leadership."  The commentary, titled "How to Prevent Total Disaster in South Sudan," noted that nearly half of South Sudan's people are in need of emergency humanitarian assistance.  But both the government and the opposition have consistently blocked the movement of lifesaving humanitarian assistance, preventing aid groups from reaching the most vulnerable people by road or river.
