Really PETA?

According to TMZ, the animal rights organization has thrown some criticism at President Obama for his killing of a fly yesterday during a media interview with CNBC’s John Harwood. “That’s the most persistent fly I’ve ever seen,” Harwood said, just before the president slapped his hand like a ninja, killing the fly that fell on to the carpet. “Nice!” Harwood said. “That was pretty impressive, wasn’t it? I got it. I got the sucker,” Obama responded, asking the CNBC film crew to get a shot of the fly on the carpet.

PETA, however, was none too happy with Obama’s action. “He isn’t the Buddha, he’s a human being and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act.”

Sigh. I’m all for the relocation of insects over killing them, but I think PETA should pick their battles a bit better. Check out the video of the crime after the jump.

[UPDATE: PETA has clarified their position. Jump here.]
