Obama Citing Genocide Overcomes War Wariness With Strikes – Bloomberg

Some Republicans have gone after Obama for his wariness to provide military aid to the government in Ukraine and to rebels in Syria battling President Bashar al-Assad. A sharp divide between Republicans who want to expand Americas engagement abroad and those who want to limit it, including potential 2016 presidential candidate Senator Rand Paul , has made it more difficult for the party to speak with a single voice against Obamas foreign policy. NATO Allies Americas NATO allies, including U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Francois Hollande, are showing support for the dropping of bombs and provisions in Iraq. Like Obamas aides, the British and French leaders — and their predecessors — have often prodded the U.S. president to deploy military assets in service of humanitarian intervention.

The planes delivered 5,300 gallons of fresh drinking water and 8,000 pre-packaged meals and were over the drop area for less than 15 minutes at a low altitude.

The plan passed Congress last week and aims to address what Obama on Thursday called “outrageous” misconduct at VA hospitals and clinics that included modifying records of delayed care. “This bill covers a lot of ground – from expanding survivor benefits and educational opportunities, to improving care for veterans struggling with traumatic brain injury and for victims of sexual assault,” Obama said at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, speaking to an audience of service members, veterans, and their families. The VA was thrust into the spotlight this spring after allegations surfaced that it had covered up the months-long wait times some veterans had to endure before receiving medical care. Former head of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki resigned in late May as the scandal mounted, and last week the Senate unanimously confirmed former Procter & Gamble Co Chief Executive Officer Robert McDonald. “As a new generation of veterans returns home from war and transitions into civilian life, we have to make sure the VA system can keep pace with that new demand,” Obama said.
