Johnnie Carson’s Reprehensible Hypocrisy: Opinion

Mr. Carson, Have you seen Eritrea once for your sake? No!

By Filmon Tesfay,

On July 19, 2011, in a briefing at the State department meant to bring attention to the drought and famine conditions afflicting over 11 million people in the horn of Africa, Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Johnnie Carson reprehensibly stated “there are many more in need in Eritrea, where a repressive regime is refusing to provide data on the humanitarian needs of its people”.

Ethiopia Demanding Ali Abdu Blacklisted From any VOA Programs?

Meles wants Ali Abdu banned from VOA. Is he joking?

By TesfaNews,

It’s been a while since the Meles Zenawi (Chenawi) regime gone extremely wild.  After two decades on the helm of the Ethiopian population, Meles Zenawi does not even tolerate the opinion of others including those he has forced them into exile. He wants to be the only person in the country to speak his mind with arrogance and impunity.

Crocodile Tears for Drought Victims As Food Aid Blockade Continues in Horn of Africa

Horn of Africa is hit by the worst drought in 60 years affecting countries like Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya and Uganda

By Thomas C. Mountain
