Arguably the former. You see, this happened:

No, really.

Speechless. Twitter users were not speechless, however, and gave Ambassador Power the business over the baffling tweet about Daniel Pearl, the journalist kidnapped and beheaded by jihadists in 2002.

Citizens asked Ambassador Power to explain her disturbing tweet.

Is this how, Ms. Power?

Or this?

It’s not funny, because it could be true.

Disgraceful, yes. But was she evil or just incredibly stupid?

Here are Ms. Power’s other tweets:

And this Twitter user brings it all home with this key exit question to Amb. Power:

    It’s a typical liberal thing. Liberals are compelled to communicate…even if they do not have anything to say, or do not know what to say. This compulsion manifests itself in tweets like this. When a lib doesn’t know what to say, but feels the need to speak anyway, they include things like “individual accountability” and “reconciliation” in their statement – that way it sounds good even if it is utter nonsense.

    • Luka

      Yup. As reflected in the public comments made by Consulting Dems, Congressional Dems in general, and particularly those in this Administration who are allowed to speak in public *cough* *cough* Uncle Joe *cough*.

      Exactly. Liberals still try to make the case that we as Americans are doing something to make these terrorists want to hurt and kills us. No…they just hate us and they always have because we don’t think the same way that they do, we don’t worship the same was as they do, we don’t treat our people the same was as they do…

  • http://therionorteline.com/ Michael Smith

    What it means is that Power is trying to make Daniel Pearl as equally responsible for his own beheading as the jihadi’s are. To consider this as a “cycle of violence” implies that there was a “tit for tat” situation in this case and that it is the “cycle” that is the problem. It is the same mentality that allows Israel to be blamed with the Palestinians lob rockets on them – “if those damn Jews just wouldn’t be so intent on protecting themselves, the poor Palestinians wouldn’t have to shoot rockets at them.”

    Total bullshit – but considering where it came from, it is sadly predictable.

    • Jay Stevens

      “To consider this as a “cycle of violence” implies that there was a “tit for tat” situation in this case . . . “.

      Her Twitter feed indicates she just recently met with Daniel Pearl’s parents, gave the 2014 Daniel Pearl lecture and included the Daniel Pearl foundation in her tweet. Mayyyybbeeee there is an alternative explanation to your argle-bargle since that would basically imply that Daniel Pearl’s parents are stupid/self-destructive enough to have such an involvement with a certifiable anti-Semite who blames their son for his own demise.

      • secondgenamerican

        You are probably correct. The alternative explanation is that she is too stupid to be let out in public.

    The only dialogue that is being entered into is violence against jews and the west. Until this violence is stamped out with more violence nothing will change. I hate this.

    Power has no business being in that position. She obviously is a Kumbya Leftist who had no idea of the threat radical Islam presents to our country and the West. Barry knew this then he appointed her but it is all part of his plan to destroy the worlds only remaining super power. People in this country really need to realize what Obama is all about.

  • Aaron1960

    ‘Cycle of violence’. This Weasle phrase is used in social-crime fighting circles too. As if the criminals are only part of the problem. The Islamo-terror groups are the problem. Multi-culti liberals think there’s a equal footing here in terms of existence and society.

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      You have to feel for Pearl’s parents.. but their outreach is to the young in muslim nations to try and build bridges to the up coming generations..

      Not the one running around now killing people..

      For her to equate the Pearl’s actions in this “cycle of violence” with what muslims are doing is so far past merely offensive it’s mind boggling..

      Pearl harmed no one.. he was just alive, busy being an American, and a Jew..

      and these 7th century savages butchered him for it..

      HOW is that a tit for tat “cycle of violence” Powers?

      I’d really like to know..

      Should the Jews strive to be less Jewish to appease these walking piles of camel dung?.. maybe less American?…

    I think what she was aiming for was the O’ministration’s line of ‘terrorists are really just criminals’ and ‘Islam is a religion of peace except for those few criminals who happen to practice Islam’ sort of nonsense along with ‘The Jews are equally responsible for Terrorist acts against them since they incite violence and violence begets violence.’

    Her tweet as is particularly offensive especially because it comes from a US Gov’t Official who is also supposed to be a US Ambassador — an appointee who “works to advance U.S. interests,
    promote and defend universal values, and address pressing global
    challenges to global peace, security, and prosperity.”

    She is a victim of the propaganda of the terrorists. She should be removed immediately.

  • DANEgerus

    Daniel Pearl was murdered because he was Jewish, which exposes anti-Semites like Samantha Power, and the true meaning behind their statements like “cycle of violence”… because it is NOT “because” of Israel… it’s because they are Jews.

    I’m not going to blast her because I don’t know what she’s trying to say and I don’t think she knows what she was trying to say. The tweet is just her trying to sound intelligent about something and her subsequent explanations and her supporters do her no good in trying to clarify. I don’t think she meant to offend but who really knows. I do find it funny that Gil Reich tried to defend her by saying that others were taking her “out of context”. It’s her fucking tweet. It’s not like someone parsed it from much longer quote of hers. She tweeted it. How does someone take a tweet out of context. Learn what that means pal…

        His parents are trying to not to perpetuate the cycle of violence by reaching out. Not to terrorists, I assume, but to the other muslims. The only way to really stop the violence is to communicate. That’s their belief.

        That’s my interpretation of the tweets. I could be wayyyyyy off. Especially with this group of leftists.

    (Keating Woodworks) “Pearl’s parents chose to be accountable and not perpetuate cycle on their end.” You mean they didn’t kidnap and behead someone else in revenge? I’m sure the odds of that happening are so close to zero as to make no difference.

    Power: “We must be vigilant in protecting the rights of the press.” Has she voiced this to the FCC and their masters, who are looking to put government monitors in newsrooms here at home?

    If you read thru what she was doing at the time she, without explaining, was trying to support Daniels parents point of view that to try to go towards peace with an enemy you have to not carry forward the violence that has proceeded before. I don’t agree that what they did to Daniel was right in any fashion. And actually I don’t agree letting twisted people like this go unpunished is the right thing to do either. But I think I understand what she was poorly trying to say. Pretty bad for an Ambassador.

  • Utahlady

    She is VERY typical of the people Obama has chosen to represent the USA and she sure does a good job of making us all look uncaring and unintelligent. She is a product of our liberal universities. None of them make a bit of sense to those of us who live a real life ,who have to actually be much smarter just to survive these folks. One should not have to awake everyday and determine how to avoid the pitfalls in life that a government full of people like Ms Powers presents to us. Pure evil people killed Mr Pearl,it is not necessary for decent people to search for a politically correct explanation or to string together an incomprehensible string of words to discuss the death or Mr Pearl.

    She just expressed Obama’s world view.

  • jimbo124816

    Sorry Ambassador Power, Daniel Pearl cannot be held “personally responsible”, and cannot achieve “reconciliation”. He’s dead. Killed by savages who are stuck in the dark ages. Killing Daniel Pearl by a swift swing of a sword or a bullet to the temple would have been bad enough, but they sawed his head off from the back, taking 45 seconds to do it. I would consider that to be much more than just evil.

    When you try to talk to them as adults, they are sitting across the table thinking of new exciting ways to remove your head, or blow you up.

    This is how they plan to be members of polite society.

  • http://twitter.com/4ever_a_kafir Travis Wolfeil

    Asra Nomani used to write for The Wall Street Journal and was a good friend of Daniel Pearl, who, in addition to being one of her co-workers, was Jewish. She said once said that there are Quranic pages that “need to be ripped out and gone up in smoke.” She’s probably the only famous Muslim I actually trust.

  • https://youtu.be/h82D5ZvcALM CrustyB

    Why don’t you redirect your lectures about accountability to the obscene muslim cultists who sawed Pearl’s head off while mumbling “Allahu ackbar” to their false prophet of violence? Typical god damned liberal.

  • MRSquared

    This is clearly in line with liberal “thought” that drove Noam Chomsky to state that the “easy” way to stop terrorism is to “stop participating in it.” Surely if Daniel Pearl had made that choice everything would be just fine, right? How can anyone think like this?

Power and the UN are useless.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    “Ambassador Power probably blames Ambassador Stevens for #Benghazi”

    It’s amazing how Power is more critical of the victim of the beheading than she is of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Damn anti-semite.

    Power caused some confusion by saying “Daniel Pearl” when she meant the Daniel Pearl Foundation. Similar to how one my say “I’m watching Turner,” meaning a TV channel, not Ted Turner himself. I checked at the ADL and the Jewish Daily Forward and their last articles dealing with Power were Oct. 31, 2013 and Feb. 11, respectively. You can search there, yourself! Seems it’s just Republican Christians howling that Power is an anti-Semite.

    For those who don’t understand the tweet her writings on American and Israeli ‘genocide’ put it into perspective. She believes the United States should have invaded Israel and needs to apologize to the world for some perceived crimes we never committed. She also thinks Jews have too much money. Shes another leftist idiot that has no idea how wealth is created and thinks we are all born with a big pile of it and the only way to get more is through theft.

    Just a little somethin’, somethin’ I put together when her name began to be bandied about… CHECK out her husband….just WEIRD.

    President Obama has named a former journalist and activist to represent him at the United Nations. If confirmed, Samantha Power will replace Ambassador Susan Rice, who is returning to the White House to become national security adviser. Power’s supporters see her as a voice of conscience in the Obama administration, an advocate for humanitarian interventions.”

    I’ve also read(can’t find it)that she advocates putting US troops into Israel to fight AGAINST Israel and that she has advocated KILLING CHRISTIANS! She is DEF pro Palestine.

    Ironically, her husband, Cass Sunstein, is Jewish….go figure. WEIRD! She’s Catholic, as a side note….wonder if she’s one of the 80% that make up the SPLC that id’s “extremists”….
    http://www.jewishpress.com/tag/donolin/

    The WORST thing is, you know all the mess we’re seeing about invasion of privacy via phone records, etc.? Read below at what HE proposed. OH MY GOSH!!!!

    http://impeachobamatoday.blogspot.com/…/obama-and…

    http://www.fiscalconservatives.com/…/nQywwvpJAmc.html…

    And her HUSBAND, “Cass Sunstein has long been one of Barack Obama’s closest confidants. Often mentioned as a likely Obama nominee to the Supreme Court, Sunstein is currently Obama’s head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs where, among other things, he is responsible for “overseeing policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs.” In 2008, while at Harvard Law School, Sunstein co-wrote a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-”independent” advocates to “cognitively infiltrate” online groups and websites — as well as other activist groups — which advocate views that Sunstein deems “false conspiracy theories” about the Government. This would be designed to increase citizens’ faith in government officials and undermine the credibility of conspiracists. Sunstein advocates that the Government’s stealth infiltration should be accomplished by sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups.” He also proposes that the Government make secret payments to so-called “independent” credible voices to bolster the Government’s messaging (on the ground that those who don’t believe government sources will be more inclined to listen to those who appear independent while secretly acting on behalf of the Government). This program would target those advocating false “conspiracy theories,” which they define to mean: “an attempt to explain an event or practice by reference to the machinations of powerful people, who have also managed to conceal their role.”

    The paper’s abstract: “Many millions of people hold conspiracy theories; they believe that powerful people have worked together in order to withhold the truth about some important practice or some terrible event. A recent example is the belief, widespread in some parts of the world, that the attacks of 9/11 were carried out not by Al Qaeda, but by Israel or the United States. Those who subscribe to conspiracy theories may create serious risks, including risks of violence, and the existence of such theories raises significant challenges for policy and law. The first challenge is to understand the mechanisms by which conspiracy theories prosper; the second challenge is to understand how such theories might be undermined. Such theories typically spread as a result of identifiable cognitive blunders, operating in conjunction with informational and reputational influences. A distinctive feature of conspiracy theories is their self-sealing quality. Conspiracy theorists are not likely to be persuaded by an attempt to dispel their theories; they may even characterize that very attempt as further proof of the conspiracy. Because those who hold conspiracy theories typically suffer from a crippled epistemology, in accordance with which it is rational to hold such theories, the best response consists in cognitive infiltration of extremist groups. Various policy dilemmas, such as the question whether it is better for government to rebut conspiracy theories or to ignore them, are explored in this light.” Conspiracy theories like, say, The New World Order?

    Has anyone here read anything anywhere that supports Samantha Power’s claim that she said Daniel Pearl was a Jew and a Journalist, etc.?

    Of course there is a cycle of violence in which Daniel Pearl was a participant. He perpetrated an aggression upon the muslims by: 1 being a Jew, 2 being an American and 3 most egregiously, existing. Of course the cycle had to be continued by the muslims in the face of such heinous provocation. After all, as the instigator Daniel Pearl had the means to break the cycle. All he had to do was convert, submit or die. In the end, he died which broke the cycle between him and the muslims and they move on to the next cycle. For the muslims it is never ending – there are about 5 billion cycles to go. /sarc – then again, maybe not so much

      She knew exactly what she was saying. She was testing the waters, to see how much reaction there would be. Their philosophy has always aligned with the muslims. Hate Jews, blacks, women, and dogs as they are inferior. The question is, why are they suddenly getting so bold with there views?

        Incrementalism – right now they sense that we are floundering through a severe lack of leadership and a decline in the cohesiveness of the American people. Now is the time for them to be a little bolder. If there is no major kickback then they will advance a little more aggressively. Always testing the waters – 911 was a test. The kickback was rapid and it hurt so they pulled back. They do this on many fronts. Eventually the overt terrorism front will be tried again. Not that they haven’t continued at a subdued tempo. I personally am surprised that a truly major attack hasn’t yet occured. They still have 3 years of the current president/administration. Couple with that with the feckless foreign policy performance of the current administration and the recent decision on downsizing the military, the conditions and threat level are elevated exponentially.

    Yep, Mr. Roger’s neighborhood is going downhill fast. Used to be that decapitating an infidel was fun. Now it’s become a federal case. (SARC)

    Anything to get Americans minds off the economy. We can only hope that the Obamama Experiment is in its death throes.

    Please, let us learn from this dear lady’s wisdom. Let us watch as she sits down with jihadist leaders; shows them that she is unarmed, comes in peace, and means them no harm; manifests her individual responsibility; and reconciles all differences. I am eager to learn how it is done. You?
