As if Iraqi refugees haven't suffered enough . . .


August 14, 2009
Statement by Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on the Appointment of Two Senior Officials Responsible for Iraqi Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons
President Obama has long made clear that the United States is committed to working closely with the Iraqi government to aid Iraqis who have been displaced or are otherwise vulnerable as a result of the violence in Iraq. Since April, the United States has made available approximately $196 million in additional support for these populations for a total of $346 million to date in FY 2009.
Further to discussions that took place during Prime Minister Maliki's recent meetings in Washington, President Obama is pleased to announce that Samantha Power, Senior Director for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights at the National Security Council in the White House, will coordinate the efforts of the many parts of the U.S. government on Iraqi refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs), including the Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development, Department of Homeland Security, and Department of Defense.
We are also pleased to announce that Mark Storella, a Senior Foreign Service officer who recently served as Deputy Chief of Mission in Geneva, has arrived in Baghdad to take up the post of Senior Coordinator for Iraqi Refugees and Displaced Persons. Storella will coordinate our government's work in Iraq on refugees and IDPs, and will represent the United States in its dealings with the Iraqi Government, the international community, and non-governmental organizations on these issues.

Haven't Iraqi refugees suffered enough without Barry shoving the old war whore Sammy Power off on them?

The very masculine and testosterone heavy Sammy Power is a threat to herself and others. The illustration is Isaiah's "Kamikaze Sammy" from March 9, 2008. It's worth recalling the caption to that illustration when you read the s**t the Boston Globe pulled out of its ass and attempted to serve up. They note the "monster" remark. That's not why she stepped down you damn liars. Maybe you do deserve to be shut down? If you're going to sell that kind of garbage, maybe your lying ass needs to be forever closed.

Caption to Isaiah's comic back in March 2008:

Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Kamikaze Sammy." Samantha Power swoops down declaring, "You can't make a commitment in whatever month we're in." Her comments to the BBC about how Barack Obama (whom she was an advisor to) making a 'pledge' to withdraw combat troops from Iraq within 16 months is nothing but pretty words that the campaign cannot and does not intend to live by.

And that is why she stepped down. She didn't give a damn about the monster remark. The campaign was doing spin control but Robert Gibbs, among others, wasn't especially worried about those comments. It was when news started leaking about what she'd told the BBC and that the BBC would be airing it that Samantha decided -- she decided -- to step down because she realized she would be a liability. She also grasped by quitting before the BBC interview aired the always-in-the-tank-for-Barry US press would be sure not to make too much of her remarks that there was no promise to pull all troops out in 16 months.

The hag with the bad dye job is now going to 'help' Iraqi refugees? If you've ever prayed for them before, pray for them now. They will need all the help they can get.

And it's one more sign of how little Barack cares about Iraq or the peace movement. The woman who revealed there was no plan for withdrawal has now been put in charge of the refugees. That says a great deal. Hey, she did such a bang up job on Camp Ashraf didn't she? She Doug Lute really demonstrated how wonderful and talented they were, didn't they? (No, they didn't. They did a lousy job and they both swore they knew what they were doing. As usual, Sammy Power didn't know s**t.)

Written that way because the sidebars on Stan, Ann and Isaiah's sites are not working. I grabbed that from Wally and Cedric and their latest joint-post is "THIS JUST IN! NATURAL BORN LIAR!" and "Barack's distant relationship with the truth."
