Samantha Power is the former far left United Nations Ambassador under President Barack Hussein Obama. Power succeeded Susan E. Rice. In January 2021, junta leader Joe Biden nominated Power to be the head of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
Power unmasked hundreds of names of persons associated with the 2016 Trump campaign under the Obama administration's illegal and criminal FISA abuse to interfere with 2016 presidential election and aid the campaign of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Power testified that others used her name in unmasking requests.
Samantha Power is the wife of Obama's initial regulatory Czar, Cass Sunstein.

One month after thousands of rocket attacks were launched from West Bank territories, USAID resumed payments to the Palestinian Authority after the Trump administration halted payments three years earlier.

Throughout election year 2016 Samantha Power, via her State Department office, was unmasking names from the DOJ/FBI conspiracy team's FISA(702) searches, and FISA(Title-1) surveillance results. After discovery, she claimed in 2017 someone else was using her database access.

Power is the author of the Obama Doctrine, referred to as R2P (Responsibility to Protect) through "humanitarian interventionism". Power has advocated a U.S. military invasion of Israel under her theories to "protect" Palestinian terrorists. After spending Obama's first term in the White House as a foreign policy adviser and the key architect behind collapsing the nation of Libya with ensuing chaos, Obama rewarded Power with the post of U.N. Ambassador.
Samantha Power was the primary decision maker behind Obama's interventionist entry into the Libya war. It was Power, along with Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton, who led the framework of the Libyan uprising, specifically Obama's military aid and support for al-Qaeda in Benghazi. According to the Harvard Law Record:
Samantha Power ’99, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations during the latter part of President Obama’s tenure, was named to a joint appointment at both the Law School and the Kennedy School. The article from Harvard announcing her appointment cites her work in human rights, diplomacy, and international justice as qualifications for the appointment, but a critical examination of her record as ambassador reveals a much more sordid history of promoting American imperialism and enabling the very human rights abuses she sought out to prevent.
Libyan slave trade
An Opinion piece was published in the Harvard Law Record shortly after Power joined the faculty:
|"From Libya to Gaza to Yemen, Samantha Power has had an active role in either promoting western intervention within the Administration or defending the violence of the U.S. and its allies. Libya made headlines recently with reports of an active slave trade occurring in the country. This combined with the continued civil war and pervasive presence of the Islamic State has reminded the world of the massive chaos and instability western intervention caused in Libya, and it is impossible not to put at least some blame for the current state of affairs on Samantha Power. According to mainstream media outlets, she is considered one of the key figures that pushed to launch the ultimately disastrous intervention. Throughout her career, Samantha Power has been a proponent of the “responsibility to protect” or “R2P” doctrine, which has broad based principles espousing prevention of genocide and a responsibility to protect human rights, but was used by Power in the case of Libya to promote a bombing campaign and a regime change that left as many as 30,000 dead and a country left to be a battleground for jihadists and local powers.
Power, however, seems not to have applied any of this “responsibility to protect” to the various parties being oppressed and murdered by the U.S.’s geopolitical allies. While she now lambasts the Saudi government on Twitter for their devastating assault on Houthi rebels in Yemen, which has become a humanitarian crisis and killed scores of civilians, while she was an ambassador, she was either silent on the matter or even actively defending the KSA’s crimes as the U.S. sold billions of dollars of weapons to the Saudis. It is no surprise that her former top spokesperson now works for the UAE to discredit evidence of human rights violations in Yemen.
So too in Israel and Palestine did Power ignore her own responsibility to protect the vulnerable and oppressed. During the 2014 conflict in Gaza, Power failed to condemn any of the Israeli actions that left thousands of the occupied population dead, instead shifting all blame to Hamas. If the U.S. didn’t have the responsibility to protect the 500 children killed in Gaza, then what value can Samantha Power’s doctrine have?
To complete the cruel irony of Samantha Power’s career arc from purported defender of human rights to interventionist ambassador, she received the Henry A. Kissinger Prize from the man himself in 2016. Some of the noted war criminal and fellow Harvard alumnus’ foreign policy strategies may not be too far removed from Power’s, as she stated in a 2014 New Yorker profile that she finds herself “gravitating more and more to the G.S.D. [Get-Shit-Done] people. We’re racing against the clock here to get as much done as we can. So when you run across people who know how to be bureaucratic samurais, or are especially persuasive in their diplomacy internationally, spend more time on those relationships, and on brainstorming with those individuals, to achieve a common purpose. Principles and positions only take you so far.”
Harvard Law School prides itself on the quality and backgrounds of its faculty. Perhaps more care should be taken to examine whether new faculty members adhere to the same principles it expects from its students."
