Now enter the newly rehabilitated “senior adviser”, Samantha Power, who is the same person who stated on a talk show back in 2002, that, if she had the opportunity to advise a sitting president on the Palestinian-Israel conflict, she would advise the US president in the following way:
Samantha Powers: What we don’t need is some kind of early warning mechanism there, what we need is a willingness to put something on the line in helping the situation. Putting something on the line might mean alienating a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import; it may more crucially mean sacrificing — or investing, I think, more than sacrificing — billions of dollars, not in servicing Israel’s military, but actually investing in the new state of Palestine, in investing the billions of dollars it would probably take, also, to support what will have to be a mammoth protection force, not of the old Rwanda kind, but a meaningful military presence. Because it seems to me at this stage (and this is true of actual genocides as well, and not just major human rights abuses, which were seen there), you have to go in as if you’re serious, you have to put something on the line.
The woman is clearly a Leftist Loon who propagates the myth of genocide, or the possibility of one, against the Palestinians by Israel. The whole lie has been swallowed hook, line and sinker by these morons that promote themselves as “experts” but wouldn’t know their arse from a hole in the ground.So now according to the J’lem Post, Samantha Power has been included on the list of 14 advisers to help incoming Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton during the transition period in the State Department.”A former adviser to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign who once called Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton a “monster” is now working on the transition team for the agency that Clinton may lead. State Department officials said Friday that Samantha Power is among foreign policy experts the president-elect’s office selected to help the incoming administration prepare for Clinton’s anticipated nomination as secretary of state. The Obama transition team’s Web site includes Power’s name as one of 14 members of the “Agency Review Team” for the State Department. During the Democratic primary campaign, Power called Clinton “a monster” in an interview. She then resigned, calling her remarks inexcusable and contradictory to her admiration for Clinton.”Forget about the remark, the main thing here is that Obama sees no problem in having a woman like that on board at all, who holds absolutely absurd far-Leftist views. Power believes that the US military should invade a staunch ally like Israel in order to help with the founding of a Palestinian state, though its terrorist “leadership” have yet to give up on the dream of eliminating the Jewish state. Such thinking is incredibly absurd as it is dangerous, and yet she finds her way back into the good graces of the incoming Obama administration.Thankfully she’s not yet been tapped as a National Security Adviser, at least yet, the dust has yet to settle on the incoming Obama regime, but if Samantha Power does get a higher level post, it woudln’t surprise the Tundra Tabloids one bit.
