Ambassador Samantha Power: The “Hellish Power” Who Bombs her Way Out of Genocide!
I recently read an interesting but guarded article by Sheryl Gay Stolberg in the NY Times (posted earlier) about the United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power.
Both in her personal and professional articles and appearances, I found her awkward, gawky, and reincarnation of the Gaelic Woman Warrior lost in a world of touchy-feely sentiments.
For those how do not know who she is, and I admit that I really did not care to know more about her until this article entitled, “A New U.S. Player, Put on World Stage By Syria” appeared.
I had heard about her and her Pulitzer Prize Winning novel, oops sorry, non-fiction, A Problem From Hell: America And The Age Of Genocide. I had the good misfortune to have read the book and dismissed it as ‘childish, simplistic and factually incorrect’. Of course, needless for me to say that this book had grown out of a paper that she had written for her law degree at Harvard.
Unfortunately for Ms Powers, her descriptive inaccuracies were obvious to many but especially to me because of my personal involvement in developing the architecture for the 1991 Paris Peace Conference On Cambodia.
