Sudan Food Aid

NPR's Ted Clark reports President Clinton signed legislation today giving him the power to send food aid to the rebel army fighting to overthrow the government of Sudan. The president has not decided whether to send the aid, but the bill has touched off a fierce debate within the administration. Critics of such a move say it would violate a longstanding policy of neutrality with regard to food aid in a conflict.
