Obama Remembers To Forget The Lessons Of The Holocaust

President Obama was on Capitol Hill today to speak at the Holocaust Days of Remembrance ceremony.

The President said we have, "to commit ourselves to resisting injustice and intolerance and indifference, in whatever forms they may take, whether confronting those who tell lies about history or doing everything we can to prevent and end atrocities like those that took place in Rwanda, those taking place in Darfur."

Nice platitudes. Yet President Obama insists on engaging the very regime the perpetuates the lie the Holocaust never happened.

One lesson from the Holocaust he has remembered to forget is that one does not legitimize regimes bent on commiting evil.
