Samantha Power and Senator Obama OK with 'equivalent of ethnic cleansing'?

Kellie of the blog Air Force Amazons listened to a broadcast recently on BBC radio that featured, among others, Samantha Power, one of Barack Obama's top foreign policy advisorsTheir ties are solid and indisputable.

We have been critical of Senator Obama's foreign policy and national security views and plans. We have also been critical of his choice of foreign policy advisers -- especially Samantha Power, who has displayed harsh feelings towards one of our closest allies-Israel. .

We now have additional reasons to have qualms. In the radio broadcast to promote her book she stated that when President Obama retreated from Iraq his plans might very well include "moving potentially people from mixed neighborhoods to homogenous neighborhoods" which she admits is the 'equivalent of ethnic cleansing". 

Who would have ever thought that President Obama might be an ethnic cleanser? Is this the type of image America wants to project to the world? Will this restore our image-from liberator to ethnic cleanser? One more reason to be wary of Samanatha Power and Senator Obama.

For those who want to cut to the chase, the snippet occurs about 18 minutes and 30 seconds into the BBC interview.
