This is What it Sounds Like When Flies Cry Die – (genghis)

In what’s likely to mushroom into a major international crisis overshadowing the situations in both Iran and North Korea, President Obama carried out a public execution during an interview at the White House yesterday as members of his staff and the media looked on in horror. Moreover, the President did so without even granting the condemned a trial or even access to legal counsel.

The shocking incident was caught on tape during an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood. Reaction has been somewhat muted so far but is expected to escalate as the incident garners more publicity. Some so-called “law and order” groups are hailing the President’s actions and praising him for swift and decisive leadership. They believe that this will send a strong message to those who flout the law domestically as well as ne’er-do-wells and other miscreants who would disrupt peace around the globe. Already videos have appeared on the Web lauding his actions and comparing him to a ninja.

Others, however, are voicing outrage at what they consider to be a senseless and unjust execution. Chief among these are groups such as PETA. In a statement yesterday, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk proclaimed "He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being, and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act."
In additional remarks according to the AP:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the flyswatter in chief to try taking a more humane attitude the next time he's bedeviled by a fly in the White House. PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside."We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals," PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. "We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals."

However, the President appears to be standing by his decision and the White House has declined to issue any additional statement at this time.
