Is PETA upset with Obama over killing a fly?

There appears to be a bit of a debate brewing over whether PETA is criticizing President Obama for killing a fly during a recent interview.

Australia's Daily Telegraph is reporting that PETA is criticizing the president for swatting and killing a fly during a recent interview with CNBC.

PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich told the Telegraph that "swatting a fly on TV indicates he's not perfect...and we're happy to say that we wish he hadn't."

Friedrich also said PETA has sent Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher.

Hold on a minute. Over on PETA's blog, Alisa Mullins wrote a rather curious post about Obama and the fly.
Believe it or not, we've actually been contacted by multiple media outlets wanting to know PETA's official response to the executive insect execution.

Ok, so the media is blowing this all out of proportion. But then comes this graf:
In a nutshell, our position is this: 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.

AHHA! It's all of humanity's fault, not Obama's.
