Obama Activates Libya-Model "Atrocities Prevention Board" to Launch Wars against Target Countries
April 24, 2012 • 7:07AM

Speaking at the U.S. Holocaust Museum Monday, Barack Obama launched a full scale plan for preventive war against national sovereignty—starting with Iran and Syria.

But Obama didn't just deliver a speech: he launched the following measures by unilateral executive action:

* convened the first meeting of the Atrocities Prevention Board, under its newly-appointed chair, Samantha Power;

* ordered the 16 U.S. intelligence agencies to prepare a National Intelligence Estimate on the risks of mass atrocities that require U.S. intervention;

* imposed new sanctions against companies doing technology business with Iran and Syria because they have used technology to deny population their "human rights" to use the Internet;

* hosted a White House theatrical Facebook/Twitter/podcast event where Holocaust victims and activists could publicly communicate with Samantha Power, Valerie Jarrett and some dozen other "humanitarian interventionists."

Excerpt from Obama's speech:

"Last year, in the first-ever presidential directive on this challenge, I made it clear that 'preventing mass atrocities and genocide is a core national security interest and a core moral responsibility of the United States of America.'"

Obama gave his list of victories where U.S. intervention — from military action to other "tools" "saved lives." His list included overthrowing Qaddafi, hunting down the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda, saving the referendum in South Sudan, and securing the transition in Ivory Coast.

"Now ... We're making sure that the United States government has the structures, the mechanisms to better prevent and respond to mass atrocities. So I created the first-ever White House position dedicated to this task. It's why I created a new Atrocities Prevention Board, to bring together senior officials from across our government to focus on this critical mission. This is not an afterthought. This is not a sideline in our foreign policy. The board will convene for the first time today, at the White House....

"We'll strengthen our tools across the board, and we'll create new ones. The intelligence community will prepare, for example, the first-ever National Intelligence Estimate on the risk of mass atrocities and genocide. We're going to institutionalize the focus on this issue. Across government, 'alert channels' will ensure that information about unfolding crises — and dissenting opinions — quickly reach decision-makers, including me."

He then announced the new sanctions (see accompanying slug) and more actions to come.

In coordination with the Obama launching of the Atrocities Prevention Board, a group of treasonous Senators, on Sunday, April 22, introduced a bipartisan resolution that denounced the Syrian government for "ongoing crimes against humanity," and called upon President Obama "to refer the situation in Syria to the newly established Atrocities Prevention Board and other available international legal processes." The resolution was introduced by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Ct.), with a half dozen other co-sponsors, including Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). And Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), after attending a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Sub-committee on Africa, announced that he would be introducing another bipartisan Senate bill—S-2381—to strengthen the State Department's Rewards Program for capturing accused human rights violators whose alleged actions fit under the rubric of the Atrocities Prevention Board.
