Of course the real Samantha Power is showing her real persona. Let’s take a look at her past writings to understand why she was a “No Show” at the U.N. meetings regarding Syria. She has nothing but contempt for the U.S. Keep in mind these meetings are on going. She didn’t miss just the only one. First the refresher then we will look at her “Tweet.”
Commentary Magazine: (An excellent piece, well worth the full read on our gal)
In a 2003 article for the New Republic, Power: “The U.S,” she wrote, “came to be seen less as it sees itself (the cop protecting the world from rogue nations) than as the very runaway state international law needs to contain.”
Power wrote that America’s record in world affairs had been so harmful to the freedoms of people around the world that the United States could remedy the problem only through profound self-criticism and the wholesale adoption of new policies. Acknowledging that President Bush was correct in saying that “some America-bashers” hate the American people’s freedoms, Ms. Power stated that much anti-Americanism derives from the role that U.S. power “has played in denying such freedoms to others” and concluded:
U.S. foreign policy has to be rethought. It needs not tweaking but overhauling….Instituting a doctrine of mea culpa would enhance our credibility by showing that American decision-makers do not endorse the sins of their predecessors. When [then German Chancellor] Willie [sic] Brandt went down on one knee in the Warsaw ghetto, his gesture was gratifying to World War II survivors, but it was also ennobling and cathartic for Germany. Would such an approach be futile for the United States?
Now we get back to the faux Samantha Power. The schizophrenic Power who first says “get there fast” and then we have a couple of clips of poor Fox’s Rosen trying to find out why Power didn’t get there fast.
Ambassador Power’s twitter account tweets that “UN must get there fast” — and I think, why didn’t she get to the UN EMERGENCY MEETING FAST? We need our Ambassador.
I hope she has a good excuse for her absence — other work or serious personal matter — because this IS her job, not a junior, to represent the USA in critical international matters:

Rosen to Psaki: Where Was Samantha Power During the Emergency UN Security Council Meeting on Syria? Snarky Psaki, the face of our State Dept. Am I the only one that notices the change in tone with this administration? They use to hide their contempt for us.
More snarky from this mouthpiece. She has “secure” communication via twitter with the U.N. and her staff. Get out the old laugh meter.
