The Obama administration has just 24 hours left to comply with a congressionally mandated deadline passed in December to determine whether ISISâ€™s atrocities against religious and ethnic minorities constitute a genocide.
This morning, the Associated Press reported that the Obama administration will â€œlikelyâ€ fail to meet a congressionally mandated deadline requiring a judgment on whether ISIS is perpetrating a genocide. The State Department must also assess whether the Assad regime is guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
In announcing his dangerous plan to close Guantanamo earlier this week, President Obama argued, â€œI donâ€™t want to pass this problem on to the next president, whoever it is.â€ If only he felt this way about other more pressing challenges facing our country.
Much attention was paid to the administrationâ€™s claim that it has brought â€œpeaceâ€ and â€œsecurityâ€ to Syria, and what a doozy it was, but others are raising eyebrows as well. Check out a few of our favorites:
