Obama's Israel Trip Could Mean No New Job for Samantha Power

President's Strong Support, Sympathy for Zionist Idea Might Mean Permanent Exile for Viciously Anti-Israel Adviser, an Architect of Unnecessary Libya Intervention and Instigator of Syrian Uprising

The Israel-hating Samantha Power, who actually advocated armed intervention to protect Hamas--click on the video below--has thankfully left the Obama administration. One can only hope her departure is permanent. Power never met an enemy of Israel--and secular Muslims, for that matter--she did not want to appease or engage (collaborate with) under cover of so-called human rights advocacy. Her irrational backing of Islamists is out of step and embarrassing to the administration as it prepares for the inevitable showdown with nuclear-arming, Islamist Iran. (Power is also impossibly conflicted by the nightmarish situations she helped to stir up; in Syria, Shiite Iran is backing a secular regime against Sunni Islamists.)
