Obama on Genocide and the US Military Flipflop

In last night’s Presidential Debate in Nashville, TN, Barack Obama said:

OBAMA: Well, we may not always have national security issues at stake, but we have moral issues at stake.

If we could have intervened effectively in the Holocaust, who among us would say that we had a moral obligation not to go in?

If we could’ve stopped Rwanda, surely, if we had the ability, that would be something that we would have to strongly consider and act.

So when genocide is happening, when ethnic cleansing is happening somewhere around the world and we stand idly by, that diminishes us.

Here is an article from MSNBC in July 2007 where Obama says that genocide is not a reason to send troops to Iraq or anywhere else.  Which is it Obama???

Just another case of an Obama waffle.
