President Obama on July 22, 2014:

“It doesn’t make much sense, but today in America millions of our fellow citizens wake up and go to work with the awareness that they could lose their job, not because of anything they do or fail to do, but because of who they are: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender. And that’s wrong.”

“But if you’re Gazan or an honest reporter in one of our client states…,” he could have added.

From Democracy Now, July 22, 2014, the following:

“The Palestinian death toll in Gaza has topped 600 as the Israeli siege has entered its third week. Most of those killed are civilians; more than 100 are children. Israel says it has lost 27 soldiers since the ground invasion began last week. Earlier today, Israel confirmed the remains of one of its soldiers presumed to have been killed in Gaza had still not been found. Hamas has said it captured the soldier.”

“Three Years After Coup in Honduras, Legacy is One of Murders, Impunity, and Coups and Attempted Coups Elsewhere in the Region, CEPR Co-Director Says”

Regarding the Nobel Peace Prize-winning President currently meandering around the White House, between playing drone-killer cards and meeting with and embarrassing guests, Consider what Noam Chomsky reports about the Honduran coup that Obama lost, and loses, no sleep over:

“Obama even broke new ground in support for the military coup. There are two government-funded organizations that claim to support democracy in the world: the International Republican Institute (IRI) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI). The IRI regularly supports military coups to overthrow elected governments, most recently in Venezuela in 2002 and Haiti in 2004. But the NDI had held back, including in these two cases. In Honduras, for the first time, Obama’s NDI agreed to observe the elections under military rule, unlike the OAS and the UN, still wandering in the realm of magical realism.” -page 68 of “Hopes And Prospects”
