Obama's adviser and genocide

The people Barack Obama appointed to advise him on foreign policy are the best clue we have to his thinking, given his lack of a foreign policy experience. And Samantha Power, the Kennedy School of Government professor on his team gave some troubling theoretical advice in an interview available online some time ago.

Noah Pollak of Commentary's  blog Contentions discovered  this interview with Harry Kreisler, the director of the Institute for International Studies at Berkeley, in which she discussed the abstract possibility of one party moving toward genocide in the Middle East. Read it and ponder Pollak's summary of what he sees her saying.
