Abe refers to a White House press release in which the Obama administration proudly announced today that to deal with the problem of mass atrocities, it is creating “an important new tool in this effort, establishing a standing interagency Atrocities Prevention Board.”
This just shows the extraordinary incompetence of the Obama White House. They should have called it the Atrocities Prevention Panel.
Then, when one of the Bashar al-Assads of the world slaughters his citizens (or somebody else’s) by the hundreds, the White House could say, “Mass atrocity? We have an APP for that!”
