TEL AVIV – A White House fellow served on the advisory board to the commission that founded the military doctrine "Responsibility to Protect," used by President Obama as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya.
As WND was first to report, billionaire philanthropist George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect, the world's leading organization pushing the military doctrine.
Also, several of the doctrine's main founders sit on boards with Soros.
The doctrine and its founders, as WND reported, have been deeply tied to Obama aide Samantha Power, who reportedly heavily influenced Obama in consultations leading to the decision to bomb Libya. Power is the National Security Councilspecial adviser to Obama on human rights
Now, it has emerged that Vartan Gregorian, president of Carnegie Corp. charitable foundation, served on the advisory board of the 2001 commission that original founded Responsibility to Protect.
The panel is called the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty. It invented the term Responsibility to Protect.
Gregorian was appointed by Obama in 2009 to the White House Fellowships Commission.
WND previously reported documentation shows Gregorian was central in the recruitment of Obama in 1995 to serve as the first chairman of an education project, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, or CAC.
In that capacity, Obama worked closely on a regular basis with CAC's founder Bill Ayers, formerly the leader of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization.
Obama later touted his job at the CAC as qualifying him to run for public office, as WND previously reported.
