It has often been said that morality and politics don't mix. One of the meaningless achievements of President Obama is the "Atrocities Prevention Board." President Obama launched this board a year ago, claiming it would be a serious innovation in the fight to stop genocide and crimes against humanity.
President Obama waxed eloquent at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington this week, speaking of the men and women commemorated there as "a testament to the endurance and the strength of the human spirit." He told how his great uncle, an American soldier, was stunned by what he saw at the liberation of the death camp at Buchenwald.
