Field Marshal Graziani, also known as the Butcher of Fezzan, is known in history books for his brutality in putting down a local rebellion in Cyrenaica, Libya, in the 1920s.

He is also notorious for the massacre of thousands of Ethiopians in another of Italy's colonial wars a decade later, where he is reported to have said: "The Duce [Mussolini] will have Ethiopia with or without the Ethiopians".

He ordered the use of poison gas and chemical weapons against Ethiopian troops and tribesmen in contravention of the Geneva Convention, which Italy had signed.

His final post was as defense minister in Benito Mussolini's short-lived Fascist republic of Salo, just before the end of World War II.

After the war ended, he was sentenced to 19 years' imprisonment by an Italian war crimes tribunal for collaboration with the Nazis, though he was freed after serving only some of his sentence.

This open letter to you, Mr. Secretary, is a personal protest against your ill-advised, misleading and historically incorrect statement of September 28, 2012 that you gave at a conference in Minnesota organized by an activist group called Institute for Horn of Africa Studies and Affairs (IHASA) where you attended as a keynote speaker. The issue I am hereby protesting against has to do with your response to a participant’s question that tried to draw a parallel between South Sudan and the Ethiopian-Somali region (“the Ogaden”), with the underlined insinuation that this region of Ethiopia could have the same legitimate claim as that of South Sudan for independence.
