Samantha Power, Obama's anti-genocide advisor, unveils new "Atrocities Prevention Board"
Chicago Sun Times ^ | 8/8/11 | Lynn Sweet

Posted on 08/18/2011 2:50:13 PM PDT by Thebaddog

WASHINGTON---The Obama White House issued new measures on Friday to prevent genocides and mass atrocities, creating an "Atrocities Prevention Board" in the wake of the failure of the "Never Again" vow taken following the German Holocaust to stop the murders of entire populations.

Obama's directive forming the board states: "Preventing mass atrocities and genocide is a core national security interest and a core moral responsibility of the United States of America." The directive creates an important new tool in this effort, establishing a standing interagency Atrocities Prevention Board with the authority to develop prevention strategies and to ensure that concerns are elevated for senior decision-making so that we are better able to work with our allies and partners to be responsive to early warning signs and prevent potential atrocities. The directive recognizes that preventing mass atrocities is a responsibility that all nations share and that other countries must also be enlisted to respond to particular crises. Therefore, the directive calls for a strategy for engaging key regional allies and partners so that they are prepared to accept greater responsibility for preventing and responding to crimes against humanity."

She’s the ignorant antisemite pig who actually wants a “massive protection force” to invade Israel and protect the paleostinians.

Authorizing hisself to intervene anywhere, anytime as in Libya.

Or does this mean he is forced to prevent hisself from turning our military against the citizens?

So now the Idiot in Chief can just roll in where ever with the military because some board of socialist tells him he should. He will be able to just blame them if anyone asks. Swell.

Atrocities Prevention Board

Good luck with that one. LoL.

“authority to develop prevention strategies “

So she and the Board are going to write angry letters to the brutal dictators? Or maybe she plans on talking to them and trying to ‘reason’ with them?

Wonder how many people this is going to employ and cost the tax-payers?

Thought to be an anti-Semite, and also to be the driving force behind the Libya invasion. Born in Ireland and emigrated as a child, I guess she got her citizenship when she married to Cass Sunstein.

I wonder what these kind of people think is going to happen to them after the revolution?

If she is really intent on preventing atrocities, just look out for governments that go after ‘the Rich’. Since 1789, any movement that starts out by targeting “the Rich’ ,unless hindered ,has gone on to kill multitudes more.

Disregarding the millions of innocent babies MURDERED by Obama supported abortionists. I don't have the numbers handy but I'll bet its a close call between the number of murdered Jews and murdered babies.

She’s married to Cass Sunstein?!?! The one who does the social media/internet obot stuff? So maybe “preventing atrocities” involves finding people who make “threats” on the interent and going pre-emptive on them?

Maybe in coordination with evil white women terrorists? The previous DHS evil terrorist video was about evil white man terrorists.

The words “Never Again” were spoken by the survivers of
the holocaust to indicate that never again would they
submit to that kind of treatment. It had nothing to do
with the US or it’s allies.

Just more feel good nonsense from the worst administration
in U.S. history.

To tell you the truth I’m not so sure the Libyan war isn’t just one more gunwalker operation.

Seems like I read that some of the NATO supplied weapons have already turned up in the Sinai.

All Obama has left are crazy looney leftists with an affinity toward getting joy out of administrating the killing of certain groups who deserve it.

There are only the insane admirers of the Emperors new Vineyard Collection Wardrobe left to adore the guy. Look for more really crazy stuff to get ordered by the Whitehouse. They are writing checks with a stolen checkbook, and know it's a matter of time until the cops show up.

So the jihadis lobbing a few rockets into Israel will be called a genocide campaign by Israel.

Yes, that is indeed the “logic” used by the moonbats.

What next, Ice Cream quality board?

okay, I know you're being a wizenheimer but let's get serious. There are real issues with cupcakes in this country and it's time the feds do something about it.

some of them have little tiny bottoms with big fat tops that flop over, even fall off! some of them don't even have icing. Some of the flavors are a darn sin.

So let's stop with the silliness of an atrocity prevention board, soon to be a bureaucracy staffed by thousands, and get real on the cupcake oversight bureau.

and after we get this country back in line with the cupcakes, time to get cracking on the Bureau of Reclining Chairs.

Again, time to get serious here.

This angers and frightens me.

When will Israel be safe? When will Israel be left alone to live peacefully.

Why are there any enemies to Israel? What have they done to incur such maniacal wrath?

Why, why, why?

Since she supports violence in furtherance of her stated, Leftist agenda and objectives, she needs to define each term:

1) Atrocity
2) Prevention
3) Board
4) Atrocities
5) Atrocities Prevention
6) Atrocities Board
7) Prevention Board
8) anti-genocide
9) genocide

This is an administration of totalitarian Double Speak. An Atrocity Prevention Board would do just the opposite.

Somebody gets it! The only genocide the leftists care about is the one they keep trying to accuse Israel of. Obama’s helping the Muslim Brotherhood surround Israel, and now he’s putting Powers in charge of demonizing Israel when the next Intifada kicks off in earnest.
