Blocked legislation ... again.
Now, U. S. President Barack Obama has decided to oppose Republican legislation that would deny American aid to any nation that hosts a visit from legendary murderer.
Introduced by Congressman Frank Wolf of Virginia, this Amendment to the 2013 Foreign Operations Appropriations bill passed the House in May. Its purpose is to “…send a clear message to the international community that Bashir, the world’s most notorious perpetrator of genocide deserves to be treated as a pariah.” That “clear message” would prevent offending nations from collecting billions in non-humanitarian foreign aid from the United States.
Obviously, Congress wants to do something about it but the President does not!
