the Administration's newest weapon against genocide: the Atrocities Prevention Board.
This is not an item from the Onion. A new permanent "interagency" committee that gathered for the first time Monday is now America's first line of response to brewing trouble. Meetings will be called. Treasury, State and the Pentagon will have seats at the table. Hot coffee will no doubt be served. White House aide Samantha Power, who wrote a book on America's failure to respond to genocide, is the board's first chairman. Let's hope this committee to stop human evil works better than the Kellogg-Briand pact to end all war in 1928.
