President-Elect’s national security choices during the transition process have been generally reassuring, but this one undermines all that: Samantha Power, a former foreign-policy adviser to candidate Obama, has been rehired. (Via LGF.)
Power lost her job when she publicly called Hillary Clinton (who she will now have the job of assisting) a monster, but she never should have been an adviser to a serious candidate in the first place. In 2002 she advocated a U.S. invasion of Israel.
If there is anyone that should have been left under the bus, she’s the one.
UPDATE: Hot Air has the video. By the way, it’s not just the proposed invasion (which she later repudiated) that is frightening, but her entire mindset — opposed to Israel and American Jews — that was able to spawn such a proposal.
