Is This Really All Barack Obama Has to Say About Uganda’s Kill The Gays Law?


SOUNDBITES — “The president strongly opposes efforts, such as the draft law pending in Uganda, that would criminalize homosexuality and move against the tide of history.” —A statement from the White House submitted late Friday night, and thus far the Obama administration’s only public comment on the planned state-sponsored extermination of LGBTs in Uganda. No promise of action, no denouncement of President Yoweri Museveni, no threats to withhold aid to a country approving identity cleansing. And no, the State Department’s “guidance” missive does not count as action. Neither does the White House’s statement, which is so brief and lackluster, it’s almost funny.
