KILLING THEM SOFTLY WITH A SWORD

Obama Failing In Africa

Obama’s human rights campaign in Africa is failing miserably (but not surprisingly). For the grim story, turn here. http://www.nybooks.com/blogs/nyrblog/2013/feb/25/obama-failing-african-spring/ What the article does not discuss at all is Obama’s indifference to the slaughter of protected species in Africa. Given his passion for speaking out in favor of hunting, it is not surprising. For details on elephant and rhino slaughter,...
