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.
How the Hell Much is this boondoggle going to cost.
I have an Idea Dont anyone Commit an Atrocity or or engage in Genocide, There that didnt cost a Dime
Maybe she's a pre-cog.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The voodoo is she’s in sync with Obama on Israel.
What next, Ice Cream quality board? This Administration truly is grasping at straws in everything they try to do.
Somewhere Jimmah is smiling.
Little miss nazi in her own words.
(I don’t care for her much BTW)
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?
She’s made it quite clear in th4e past that her target is Israel.
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?
Meanwhile, Repub “leadership” just sit on their collective hands and continue to look the other way.
Christians being slaughtered in Nigeria and Sudan......sound of crickets.
One Muzzie pulled over for speeding in Israel....bombs away!
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.
Any choice words for Samantha Power?
