Obama to Occupy Wall St. Protesters: “You are the reason I ran for office.”

White House locked down after smoke bomb tossed

(Reuters) – The White House was locked down on Tuesday night as authorities investigated what appeared to be a smoke bomb that was tossed over the fence of the White House compound, a Secret Service spokesman said.

The device was tossed over the fence at one point when about

1,000 to 1,500 “Occupy DC” protesters were demonstrating outside the White House, Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie said.

He said authorities were taking “appropriate measures to clear it.” He also said that a majority of the protesters had left the area and that there had been no arrests.

President Barack Obama and wife Michelle had gone out to dinner and were not at the White House when the device was thrown over the fence but returned while the investigation was underway.

Members of the White House press pool were prevented from leaving the grounds.

Haven’t read anywhere that Michelle, in addition to “goodwill” that she has with words, dealt harshly with individuals in the Continent of Africa as well as OTHER nations, such as Somalia, et al, as the “first woman of Rwandan genocide”, to STOP killing fellow Africans OR is this kind of atrocity, a NON “not proud” event, as she stated about her nation, the U.S.A.? I mean, would that NOT be a function of “goodwill”?

GABORONE, Botswana (AP) – Michelle Obama is in Botswana to begin the second leg of a weeklong goodwill visit to Africa.

Makes one wonder, especially when one reads:

U.N. court jails first woman for Rwandan genocide  Reuters via Breitbart

“Nyiramasuhuko and her son have been sentenced to jail for life in prison. Four other suspects were given different sentences,” the ICTR spokesman Danford Mpumilwa told Reuters by telephone from the court.

The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in Arusha, northern Tanzania, found Nyiramasuhuko, a former minister for family and women’s development, guilty of charges including genocide and encouraging the rape of women during the slaughter of some 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus between April and June 1994.

Accompanying Mrs. Obama on this trip will be her mother, Mrs. Robinson and her daughters, Malia and Sasha Obama.
