The Op-Ed notes the recent ruling in Britain against the Save Darfur Coalition for overstating the number of dead in Darfur. Britain's Advertising Standards Authority found that Save Darfur's estimate of 400,000 killed in the conflict is based on flawed research. Whether the number killed in Darfur is 400,000, or 200,000 or 100,000, these are crimes that must be stopped and perpetrators held accountable.
