Samantha Power Hoped to Convince Iran to Abandon Syria over WMD Use

Yes that is a sentence. It’s also a peek into the completely delusional world of our decision makers. They may Chamberlain waving his agreement around look positively sensible.

I can’t vouch for what kind of thoughts slither through Obama’s very little grey cells, but Samantha Power is an international expert on international affairs who appears to have so little clue about the real world, that she might as well be from another planet.

Iran is enduring economic sanctions designed to slow the country’s nuclear weapons program, but President Obama’s team thought the regime might abandon dictator Bashar Assad over his use of chemical weapons in Syria’s civil war.

Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, hoped that a team of UN investigators — many of whom, presumably, have a longstanding relationship with Iranian leaders — could write a report that would convince Iran to abandon its ally at the behest of the United States.

“We worked with the UN to create a group of inspectors and then worked for more than six months to get them access to the country on the logic that perhaps the presence of an investigative team in the country might deter future attacks,” Power said at the Center for American Progress as she made the case for intervening in Syria.

“Or, if not, at a minimum, we thought perhaps a shared evidentiary base could convince Russia or Iran — itself a victim of Saddam Hussein’s monstrous chemical weapons attacks in 1987-1988 — to cast loose a regime that was gassing it’s people,” she said.

This is your smart power right here. If we took a random name from the phone book, the odds would be excellent of having someone with more common sense in charge of foreign policy planning.

The sad thing is you have to be smart and educated to be this dumb, which is why credentials are often meaningless when the elites have gone down the rabbit hole into wonderland and far from any common sense.

I don’t even have to explain to anyone reading this why what Samantha Power said is indescribably stupid. Any average person thrust into this slot would quickly understand why. The odds are that your cab driver would understand why. But we’re dealing with an insulated elite that rejects basic common sense and fails to understand why its sophisticated liberal ideas don’t work out in the real world.

    Hasn’t anyone told this scrunt that anything is permissible to further Allah’s Cause?

    Samantha Power is obviously educated beyond her intelligence….and when it comes to Islam she’s totally clueless which probably explains why Obama appointed her….

    • GSR

      Not clueless about Islam, they know what they’re doing……..Power & Barry & Barry’s brain -Valerie Jarrett, want to help Islam into ascendance. And their plans are working out nicely (for them). They all hate the West because to them, “the West” means Judeo-Christian, Caucasian people. And they believe “we” have held down “their people”.

      In other words, beyond first grade. What an abject moron.

    She fits nicely in with “the team”.Priceless clueless.I am saving it for history.

    where did the President find this dumb-ass?

      Samantha the Swift is the wife of Cass Sunstein. Remember him? He was the regulatory czar for a while. He also wanted to “nudge” us all into right-think. Or left-think. They deserve each other, but wouldn’t know why.

    I suspect this gang is in the making of a massive Syrian emigration (the Egyptian failed thanks to their army). This handmade human chaos will be the ticket for Samantha/Soros/ Obama/Hillary to intervene in Israel under the International Group with the responsibility to protect…

    The impact of images of humanity suffering and the great opportunity to blame the Zionist state are useful tools to use in the international media, and extort to allow the enter of this Tsunami of refugees …to destroy Israel from within.

    Do you remember when Soros was planning to perform with that group and choosing Samantha in place of Hillary for the performance?

    Remember what this woman said about Israel years ago.
    Obama has no more credibility and Samantha Power of Sunstein as the same problem.

    Good news……….your neighborhood will soon be receiving thousands of Syrian refugees to settle in and start building mosques. Soon you will hear the call to prayer broadcast in your hometown, like in mine! Enjoy “diversity”!

  • jakespoon

    What a waste of an education. Living proof that diplomas have nothing to do with intelligence. Stupidity personified. Let them kill one another and hope there aren’t enough left to cause trouble for years to come. STAY OUT OF IT!!!

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Samantha Powers could not hate Israel more, which means she could not be anymore ignorant when it comes to Islam, and every one knows what ignorance equals: gullible useful idiot.

  • michaelharris

    Obama and the left are willing to overlook the repressive tactics vs women and gays. No one, except some conservatives, are willing to confront this. Can you imagine NBC or the N.Y. Times doing an investigative piece on,Islam’s lack of tolerance? The attacks on Christians are ignored. No one asks why there are no Jews in the Middle East except Israel. Power and her brilliant husband are two peas in the Obama change the world pod

  • Deerknocker

    And tell me again why we should trust this foreign policy team with the conduct of provocative military attacks against Syria, and its possibly bloody downstream consequences.

  • Andy_Lewis

    Where does Obama dredge these clowns up from? Slammin’ Samantha is not only a rabid Jew-hater, but a bozo as well.
