It's as if Obama considers the interest he serves as being above all that Congress-American-people-stuff. "Humanitarians" are like that, and what we're seeing is so-called humanitarian military intervention, the doctrine is promulgated by Obama's human rights adviser Samantha Power. Known as a genocide expert, Power has gone so far as to argue for the insertion of a "mammoth" American "protection" force into Israeli-Palestinian environs to prevent "human rights abuses" – code for neutralizing Israeli self-defense.
West is taking Power's comments out of context. Power was not speaking in "code" for "neutralizing Israeli self-defense"; in fact, Power was addressing a hypothetical situation about the peacekeeping force that would be needed if "one party or another" in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict were "looking like they might be moving toward genocide."
