Will the Next Secretary of State Bomb Israel?
Samantha Power, advocate of US invasion into Israel, wife of free speech opponent Cass Sunstein, emerges from the West Wing of the White House. This is a very powerful image.
Ah, the mask comes off, and out comes Obama's army of little nazis. I cannot believe the people who have access to the highest office of power in the world. Speculation is hot that Samantha Power will be the next Secretary of State.
A flattering New York Times profile has increased speculation that Samantha Power, the Dublin-born aide to President Obama, could be his next Secretary of State or National Security Adviser.
I worry so for free people.
Obama never seemed fazed by her calling in a 2002 interview with Harry Kreisler of the Institute for International Studies at Berkeley for military action against Israel to secure the creation of a Palestinian state. Power said that establishing a Palestinian state would 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 Book kind, but a meaningful military presence.” She said that this would “require external intervention.”
