    U.S. President Barack Obama issued a new executive order last week to fight human trafficking, touting his administration's handling of the issue.

    "When a little boy is kidnapped, turned into a child soldier, forced to kill or be killed -- that's slavery," Obama said in a speech at the Clinton Global Initiative. "It is barbaric, and it is evil, and it has no place in a civilized world. Now, as a nation, we've long rejected such cruelty."

    But for the third year in a row, Obama has waived almost all U.S. sanctions that would punish certain countries that use child soldiers, upsetting many in the human rights community.

    This is SOP for Obama...

    Make grand speeches on some issue and then do the opposite quietly behind the scenes by going around Congress.

    And Obama's callous attitude towards the value of life - especially the most vulnerable - is again on display.

    How can any person with a heart or a brain vote for this dung pile?

    So he doesn't protect our Ambassadors


    He sees to it that unborn children are slaughtered even after they are born


    And he supports child soldiers.


    Shameful

    As I said on another thread he is a sociopath at worst and a narcissist at best!
