OBAMA RELUCTANT TO PURSUE ISLAMIC STATE GENOCIDAIRES: This is an AP article.

War crimes investigators collecting evidence of the Islamic State group’s elaborate operation to kidnap thousands of women as sex slaves say they have a case to try IS leaders with crimes against humanity but cannot get the global backing to bring current detainees before an international tribunal. Two years after the IS onslaught in northern Iraq, the investigators, as well as U.S. diplomats, say the Obama administration has done little to pursue prosecution of the crimes that Secretary of State John Kerry has called genocide…The West looks to the United States for leadership in the Middle East, and the focus of this administration has been elsewhere – in every respect,” Bill Wiley, the head of the independent investigative group, the Commission for International Justice and Accountability, told The Associated Press…The U.S. has no legal obligation to take on the genocide of the Yazidis, but President Barack Obama has said that “preventing mass atrocities and genocide is a core national security interest and a core moral responsibility of the United States of America.”

The media and academic left would be gnashing teeth and throwing moral authority fits if we had a Republican president downplaying mass murder and sex slavery while engaging in hypocritical posturing.
