Samantha Power, President Obama's pick to be America's Ambassador to the United Nations, had previously been in charge of the Atrocities Prevention Board. How did she do in that role?
REMEMBER HER? ANOTHER ANTI ISRAEL.. ANTI AMERICAN CONSTITUTION CREATURE... WIFE OF CAS SUNSETIN... Obama To Appoint Women Who Called For Invading Israel To Be Next U.N. Ambassador… REVOLUTION PATRIOTS... THIS MAN IS GUTTING AMERICA IN FRONT OF OUR EYES AND WE ARE DOING VERY LITTLE. A White House official says President Barack Obama will name former aide Samantha Power as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Power will replace Susan Rice, who will take over as Obama’s national security adviser. The official says Obama will announce both appointments from the White House Wednesday afternoon. Power is a longtime Obama adviser who worked on his 2008 presidential campaign and ran the Human Rights office in the White House. She left the administration in February but was considered the favorite to replace Rice at the U.N. The chair of President Obama’s new Atrocities Prevention Board once called for the United States to force troops into Israeli-controlled territory in order to end abuses she said w ...
Fernando O'Connor Former Obama adviser and extremist, Samantha Power, is Obama’s choice for US Ambassador to the UN. To give you an idea of how extreme she is, Power once said she wanted to invade Israel. She encourages shifting support from Israel to Palestine. She believes, as does Obama, that he must follow HIS values, not the will of the people. Most problematic is the fact that Obama never clearly states about his values before his election and re-election. Her nomination is a slap in the face of Israel and the US electorate. Power believes in talking to all enemies without military threats or actual action against them. She does not see the threat of radical Islam as the problem. She is the former Chair of Obama’s new Atrocities Prevention Board (a Genocide Panel). This appointment was made immediately after Obama’s speech at the Holocaust Museum. When she was foreign policy adviser to the Obama campaign in 2008, she objected to focusing on the Israelis and to the “US’s axiomatic support f ...
President Barack Obama will on Wednesday nominate Samantha Power as his new ambassador to the United Nations, administration officials tell POLITICO. Power would replace Susan Rice, his new pick for national security adviser. Power, an Irish-born author on Human Rights and genocide, served as an aide at the National Security Council as the senior director for multilateral affairs and was named chair of the Atrocities Prevention Board that Obama created last year.
from Commonweal magazine Reckless Ardor Yesterday Iraq, Today Syria David Rieff May 30, 2013 - 4:58pm The great American journalist Murray Kempton once wrote that the rise of the Ayatollah Khomeini demonstrated the iron rule that, in international relations, the drunk driver had the right of way. Anyone searching for a contemporary vindication of the same rule need look no further than the enthusiasm for an American military intervention in Syria now being exhibited by the same incongruous alliance that brought us the war in Iraq and the transformation of what began (to use the more accurate nineteenth-century imperial term for it) as a punitive expedition in Afghanistan after 9/11 into a vast exercise in nation building. This alliance includes liberal interventionists such as Samantha Power, one of the key advocates within the Obama administration for U.S. involvement in the overthrow of the Qaddafi regime in Libya and currently head of the president’s hubristically named Atrocities Prevention Board, a ...

On April 23, 2012, President Barack Obama announced the creation of the Atrocities Prevention Board (APB), a high-level, interagency group responsible for developing atrocities prevention and response strategies for the U.S. government. In this fact sheet, Human Rights First offers an overview of the new board and recommendations for the Board.
Clinton speech on Prevention of Genocide & Atrocities, comments on new Atrocities Prevention Board: via
A smart post from Sean, on the Syria expectations gap: "Patrick’s argument that R2P will die without intervention represents a tendency within the foreign policy community to expect immediate results from emerging norms and institutions. For example, last week Jeffery Goldberg indirectly slammed the Atrocities Prevention Board for not taking enough action in Syria. The APB was created less than two months ago (after the Syrian crisis was well underway) and is meant to consolidate relevant agencies to engage in long-term strategy planning, not quick fixes. Also last week, Eric Posner called the International Criminal Court a “failure” and an “irritant to international relations” less than ten years since the Rome Statute came into effect. Clearly, R2P, the APB, and the ICC have weaknesses that need to be addressed. But using reductionist language such as “dead” and “failure” to describe these types of foreign policy inventions ignores the iterative nature of civilian protection and hu ...
Dear Andre: Spring is always a busy season at the Auschwitz Institute, and thanks to you and your support, this year has been even busier than usual. The highlight so far has been the launch of the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention (La Red Latinoamericana para la Prevención del Genocidio y Atrocidades Masivas). Organized by the Auschwitz Institute with the governments of Argentina and Brazil, the network brings together 18 states from Central and South America in a regional effort to prioritize prevention of genocide and mass atrocities by having civil servants undergo training in this area. Read more here. Here in the United States, the spring's top story in genocide prevention was the rollout of the U.S. government's Atrocities Prevention Board, announced by President Barack Obama in a speech at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, commemorating Yom Hashoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day. After the president's speech, the members of the board met for the first time ...
23 April 2012 During a speech at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, President Obama confirmed that atrocity prevention is "a core national security interest and core moral responsibility." The President's speech outlined an unprecedented effort to institutionalize normative commitments to atrocity prevention by creating a high-level interagency Atrocities Prevention Board, the APB, under the chairmanship of the National Security Council’s Senior Director of Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights, Samantha Power.

Highlights from Saturday's NP: Charles Krauthammer on Obama’s Atrocities Prevention Board via
If we are not prepared to intervene, even indirectly by arming and training Syrians who want to liberate themselves, be candid. And then be quiet. Don’t pretend the U.N. is doing anything. Don’t pretend the U.S. is doing anything. And don’t embarrass the nation with an Atrocities Prevention Board. The tragedies of Rwanda, Darfur, and now Syria did not result from lack of information or lack of interagency coordination, but from lack of will. - Dr. Charles Krauthammer, on the situation in Syria.
Charles Krauthammer advises to either intervene in Syria or just stop pretending, as Obama has been, that we are trying to do something there. Don't think to fool people by creating a committee against atrocities, while atrocities are going on right now. If Obama is prepared to grant Russia and China a veto over our will to act while a tyrant slaughters his citizens, don't pretend that an Atrocities Prevention Board is going to serve any purpose.
Note: In response to my previous post on the hazards of the new Atrocities Prevention Board, Andrew Miller of the Council on Foreign Relations' Center for Preventive Action offers the following alternative view. I'm not persuaded, but it is a thoughtful and intelligent rejoinder that I wanted to sha...
promotes and at Museum. He announced a so-called Atrocities Prevention Board
"Today President Obama spoke at the US Holocaust Museum, his words were pretty but it is his actions that tell the tale... In her own words Samantha Powers has attacked Israel when it had done no wrong, and blamed the Jews for Obama's campaign troubles. The appointment of Samantha Power to head up the new Atrocities Prevention Board, which under her tutelage is sure to become a forum for false attacks against Israel, is just one more example of Obama's actions not matching his words."
