One of the side stories of Obama’s action in Libya is the “comeback” of Samantha Power, Special Assistant to President Barack Obama and Senior Director of Multilateral Affairs on the Staff of the National Security Council. That should frighten any American who supports the strong friendship between the United States and Israel.
Power, pictured above with husband and colleague in the administration, controversial science czar Cass Sunstein, was a foreign policy adviser to the Obama campaign when she blamed the Jews for the criticism of then Candidate Obama’s foreign policy platform.
“There will be situations where the priority is self-defence,” she says, indicating that a preference for multilateralism only goes so far. “President Obama, like every other leader on earth, is still going to be looking out for national and economic interests. States don’t cease to be states overnight just because they get a great visionary as their new president.” But it is politically impossible for Obama to talk to Hamas, even if he wants to. She can’t say that, though, especially when vicious internet smears are making lurid allegations about his “Muslim past”….”So much of it is about: ‘Is he going to be good for the Jews?'”
Right after blaming the Jews she had an interview with The Scotsman, and said:
“We fucked up in Ohio. In Ohio, they are obsessed and Hillary is going to town on it, because she knows Ohio’s the only place they can win” She is a monster, too — that is off the record — she is stooping to anything… if you are poor and she is telling you some story about how Obama is going to take your job away, maybe it will be more effective. The amount of deceit she has put forward is really unattractive.”
She resigned the next day and went to work for the The International Crisis Group (ICG) a George Soros controlled “think-tank.” She was on the board with fellow Israel haters connected to the Obama campaign, Robert Malley and Zbigniew Brzezinski.
But despite her trashing of his future Secretary of State, Power was removed from political purgatory a year into the Obama administration, and was appointed to her present position.
Samantha Power is the “mind” behind President Obama’s policy of Responsibility to Protect which drove him to the “kinetic military action” [war] in Libya. As her influence continues to grow, the Obama administration which has already backed off from the US/Israel friendship, might very well accelerate its move away from the only democracy in the Middle East. I shudder to think what she may convince the president to do should he win a second term and will no longer need to worry about what Ms. Power calls alienating a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import [the Jews].
