Power to NSC

posted at 9:22 am on January 30, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

The wheels of the bus go round and round, but sometimes they kick things back up in the air.  After having been one of the first people to get tossed under the Obama bus during the primaries, Samantha Power has landed on her feet with a new appointment at the National Security Council.  And lucky for her, one of the perks of the job entails international travel — with the woman she described as a “monster”:

Samantha Power, the Harvard University professor who earned notoriety for calling Hillary Rodham Clinton a “monster” while working to elect Barack Obama president, will take a senior foreign policy job at the White House, The Associated Press has learned.

Officials familiar with the decision say Obama has tapped Power to be senior director for multilateral affairs at the National Security Council, a job that will require close contact and potential travel with Clinton, who is now secretary of state. NSC staffers often accompany the secretary of state on foreign trips. …

Power told the Scotsman newspaper that Clinton would stop at nothing to defeat Obama. “She is a monster, too,” Power said in the interview. “She is stooping to anything.” Power added that “the amount of deceit she has put forward is really unattractive.”

A few hours after her comments were published, Power announced her resignation, saying the remarks were inexcusable and contradictory to her admiration for Clinton.

Think she was a monster as an opponent, Ms. Power?  Wait until Hillary’s your boss.  Supposedly the two women buried the hatchet during the transition process, but perhaps Hillary figured that any contact would be short-lived.

As entertaining as that will likely prove, Power’s appointment should concern supporters of Israel.  In October, I warned that Power would find her way back into the administration, and that her views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict match up much closer to Hamas’ than to most Americans.  She makes reference to the conspiracy-theory canard of a huge Jewish lobby controlling American foreign policy on behalf of Israel — as if we wouldn’t naturally ally with the region’s sole functioning democracy over the last fifty years and oppose radical Islamists for any other reason.

And then Power gives her recipe for solving the conflict by essentially destroying the IDF:

Because, of course, the real problem in the region is the one force on which we can rely to fight the radical Islamists and Iranian proxies of Hamas and Hezbollah. Let’s occupy Israel, disarm the IDF, and fight them ourselves! What a brilliant idea! Only a Harvard professor could come up with something this stupid. And isn’t this the same group of people who spent the last six years screeching about how arrogant and wrong-headed the Iraq War was?

This woman is a foreign-policy disaster.

In choosing her as a senior member of his foreign policy team, Obama reveals his true intentions for Israel: he’s going to throw them under the bus, just as he’s done with every other “friend” that he suddenly finds inconvenient.

Mr. President was not listening in church, or Rev. Wright was too dense to explain this. And Soros, the puppet master, just doesn’t care. There are consequences for messing with Israel. God said to Abraham:

2 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse…Genesis 12: 2-3

Exactly right. Larry Summers is running economic policy, Greg Craig is running legal policy, Carol Browner is running energy/environment policy, and apparently Samantha Power is going to run foreign policy. None of these people would have survived a Senate confirmation hearing. Very troubling.

Many of my Jewish friends felt appeased when he appointed Rahm Emmanuel. They felt his influence on Obama would be beneficial.

I don’t understand why the majority of American Jews are looking the other way and support B. Hussein Obama. I also don’t understand why George Soros has not been scrutinized as the power behind the scenes. For all we know, he may have caused the Market Meltdown. Obama’s administration is a covert operation.

kingsjester on January 30, 2009 at 9:46 AM

Glad to see Obama is serious about his foreign policy. Playing little games like putting 2 women who hate each other in a position working together with the world’s leaders on behalf of our nation seems ill-fated.

artist on January 30, 2009 at 9:42 AM

I think you missed my point. THOSE people were confirmed….but they are NOT the people who will actually be setting the policy. The people who will be setting the policy are in the White House — Greg Craig, Larry Summers, Carol Browner, and now Samantha Power. THEY would never have been confirmed by the Senate, or would at least have had very ugly confirmation hearings. So President Rahm Emanuel has just cleverly circumvented the Advise and Consent clause of the Constitution by installing his favorite hacks in White House jobs that do not require Senate confirmation, and putting figureheads in the Cabinet jobs.

Be very clear about this. Hillary Clinton will run around the world giving nice speeches and making everyone in Gstaad feel all warm and fuzzy about America again. Meanwhile, Samantha Power will be in her White House office selling Israel out and telling Iran to do whatever the hell it wants.

And what happens if Hillary figures this out and gets pissed? She resigns? Then what? She just gave up her Senate seat and won’t get that back. She won’t be President if she abandons the Hope and Change Administration.

I hadn’t thought about it that way except in the case of Ayers, who I think is an active part of the obamadmin.

I also wonder WHY Geithner had to cheat on his taxes.. Usually that indicates some type of financial insolvency if it doesn’t indicate greed. Wanna bet that the admin has a nice fat juicy file on “Too Stupid to use TurboTax” Geithner?

Secular liberals, who happen to be born Jewish, bearing little or no relation to religious Jews or Judaism. “Jewish” Obama supporters are like other liberals, they vote for Obama for reasons having nothing to do with religion. For ex. black, while generally church-going and traditional in many respects, vote for the lib. Do you call them Christian Obama supporters, as if there’s something wrong with Christianity? In both cases, in spite of the good messages their religions promote, the Obama supporters are deaf to them.

This is going to end very badly

billypaintbrush on January 30, 2009 at 10:23 AM

okay I found One of the interviews March of 08

the new scotsman

start with this gem:

(some)veterans of Bill’s administrations, yes; others Power dismisses in pretty uncomplimentary terms. “We don’t want to end up in a lowest-common-denominator operation, which is what, I think, actually, really hurt her.” Twenty-five people on every call when setting policy, she explains, and too many people ready to caution “No, you can’t say that”.

YEAH WE WOULDNT WANT THREE HUNDRED ADVISERS ON THE PHONE OR ALL BILLS OLD STAFF BWAAAAHAAAAAAAA!

The way to do it, according to Power, is “to be in the room with the bad guys but not to check your principles in at the door”. Obama would engage with Iran’s President Ahmadinejad. He would sit down with North Korea and Syria. Is there anyone he wouldn’t talk to? “Not among elected heads of state. He won’t talk to Hamas, but he would talk to Abbas.”

This seems inconsistent with America’s talk of spreading democracy – after all, Hamas is a democratically elected government, and Mahmoud Abbas’s party, Fatah, lost the last popular vote. “Well, Abbas is the head of state, so he’s going to talk to heads of state.” Don’t you have to trust to the democratic process? Not necessarily, seems to be the answer,

-this woman scares the hell out of me she really does-
HERE IT IS MOVING AWAY FORM ELECTOCRACY??

“Obama has talked a lot about the importance of moving away from electocracy,” she says, trying to move on to more comfortable territory, and suggesting that the way people actually live is more important than the “reification of elections”.

“In terms of how radical the shift will be, I think it’s very hard. There’s going to be a huge foreign service and civil service that he will inherit, senators and congressmen who have already been elected. So I think he is one guy, trying to steer this ship of cacophonous agendas into a new place.”

The Obama Doctrine-

“Walk softly and carry a limp dick”

DamnYankee on January 30, 2009 at 10:39 AM

Almost no one in the Israeli leadership has had an illusions about what U.S. foreign policy would do under Obama, though a lot of liberal Democratic Jews haven’t figured it out yet (or just don’t want to). Power’s not going to do anything right now, but there is a strong Arabist wing in the State Department which, depending on what Hillary does, might try to bypass her and go directly to Samantha to boost their case for shifting support away from Israel.

Combined with Obama’s planned union payoff on hiking tariffs on foreign goods, don’t be surprised if two years from now a lot of Obama cultists here and abroad suddenly start having a far different opinion of his administration that’s no longer all things to all people who hated George W. Bush.

The only good thing to come out of Harvard lately has been Walter Bishop. slaving away in his cow-studded laboratory, working to keep America safe from giant tentacle viruses and teleporting super-villains. In fact, I’d rather have Walter at NSC, or even Secretary of State… interrupting pompous Iranian terrorists at random moments during negotiations, to ask for anything from a breath mint to a cup of liquefied brains. Judging from Hillary’s testimony during the Rose Law Firm affair, his amnesia isn’t any worse than hers…
