In The Wall Street Journal, Benjamin Kahn writes that President Obama needs to empower his Atrocities Prevention Board to prevent further killings in South Sudan.
Samantha Power, President Obama's pick to be America's Ambassador to the United Nations, had previously been in charge of the Atrocities Prevention Board. How did she do in that role?
23 April 2012 During a speech at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, President Obama confirmed that atrocity prevention is "a core National Security interest and core moral responsibility."
