As the BBC New covered the genocide, they had a chance to talk to the Leader of the Janjaweed, Who’s name was Musa Hilal. As the news asked Hilal questions, all he could do was say that “it was a repercussion of war” (Janjaweed Leader). He also told the reporters that the United States was Exaggerating it and that it wasn’t a genocide. It is still denied to this day that it was not a genocide, that it is a war even though billions of people were murdered. As the Janjaweed still denied it, they also tried to accuse the Sudan Liberation Army for starting the conflict.
