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."

What can be done??
Why are there such enemies of Israel and the US?
I am sickened.
The next genocide, IMO, will be ObamaCare designed to allow Big Brother to decide who lives and who dies. Anyone wonder if Zero’s ghoulish staff dug up Eichmann or Mengele for a position as Health Czars?
Since she supports violence in furtherance of her stated, Leftist agenda and objectives, she needs to define each term:
5) Atrocities Prevention
6) Atrocities Board
7) Prevention Board
This is an administration of totalitarian Double Speak. An Atrocity Prevention Board would do just the opposite.
Some animals are more equal than others.
“Shes made it quite clear in th4e past that her target is Israel.”
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.
...Wait a minute!!? Now that I think about it, Israel has a representative form of government like we once had.../cynicism
...No need. Holder-SS, Napolitano-SA, Van Johns-Gestapo...
Hopefully, there will be trials in DC for the corruption that will be exposed after they’re sent packing.
Well, Samantha Powers did write a piece for one of Noam Chomsky's books, and he is notorious for being an apologist for Pol Pot.
