There are no words to describe the stupidity that infests the Obama government. Well, there may be one: Immature. Or another: Naive. Read this and select your own.
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.
“Smart” Power still hasn’t figured out that Iran’s enmity with the United States is existential. They hate us and want to destroy us, along with Israel. They’re not going to abandon their client in Damascus on any account that involves us. Ever.
Power needs to be fired, but the problem with that is Obama has no one who is more realistic or level-headed that he would select to replace her.
