An editorial in the National Review — where no one apparently wanted to attach their name to the piece — mocked Sotomayor’s “wise Latina” reputation and called her “illiterate.”

"Her opinion is legally illiterate and logically indefensible," the editorial read. "And the still-young career of this self-described ‘wise Latina’ on the Supreme Court already offers a case study in the moral and legal corrosion that inevitably results from elevating ethnic-identity politics over the law."

In all, more than 400 civilians were killed in an attack the UN believes was orchestrated by South Sudanese rebels and carried out along ethnic lines.

It appears to be the bloodiest attack since conflict began in the new nation in December.
