The impotence of Power

Reader Stephen Klasing writes:

About 10 days ago, Samantha Power appeared on the radio program Extension 720 with Milt Rosenberg on WGN AM in Chicago. She had already stepped down from the Obama campaign, and her appearance on the show was — ostensibly — for the purpose of promoting her book. But the most of the conversation focused on Obama’s foreign policy positions (and worldview) and Power’s justifications for those positions as well as her own worldview. WGN’s website used the following description to promote the show: Milt talks with former Obama foreign policy advisor Samantha Power and former Reagan administration Assistant Attorney General Joe Morris about Power’s latest book, her recent publicity over her “monster” comment, and the foreign policy positions of the Obama campaign. The show ended up being a (heated) two-hour debate between Power and former Reagan administration Assistant Attorney General Joe Morris. I realize that it’s long, but I would highly recommend. I think you’ll find it to be most illuminating. I think that Power’s answers serve as a window into far more than just the foreign policy positions of the Obama campaign. The listener should come away with a clear view of the mindset which seems to be present in many of the people that surround the candidate.

This is a good description of the program. I would add only that the final 15 minutes of the program, when Morris corners Power, really provide the payoff. Audio of the show is accessible here.
