Report: Biden Considering Former Obama Hawk To ‘Fix Humanitarian Crises She Helped Create’

Less talk, more intervention

Reports suggest that Joe Biden is considering appointing former Obama official Samantha Power to lead USAID, the government’s relief agency, prompting critics to charge that she would be in charge of fixing humanitarian crises that she created in the first place.

Axios reported that Power’s appointment would “signal the Biden administration plans to revitalize foreign assistance and use it as an instrument of soft power and to achieve humanitarian goals”.

“Foreign assistance”.

“Soft power”.

A rough translation could read “Interventionism” and “globalist dominance.”

Power, formally on Obama/Biden’s National Security Council and latterly the US envoy to the UN, oversaw the disastrous intervention Libya, working closely with Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice, who were Secretary of State and UN ambassador at the time.

And we all know how that turned out.

Power also strongly supported US intervention in Yemen and Syria under Obama.

Power recently wrote that in her opinion, Biden should “pursue foreign policy initiatives that can quickly highlight the return of American expertise and competence” and do so in a “highly visible” way.

For a translation of “expertise and competence” look up ‘interventionism’, and for an example of “highly visible”, see the afore mentioned meddling in Libya.

In the Foreign Affairs piece, Power wrote that “This means less rhetorical emphasis on the abstract cause of ‘the liberal international order’ and more practical demonstrations of the United States’ distinctive ability to deliver.”

In other words, less talk, more intervention.

The potential appointment follows a trend for Biden, who has so far signalled that he will bring back a military-industrial complex that Trump attempted to wipe away.

Biden’s foreign policy team vehemently supported every single disastrous military intervention over the past two decades:

Video: Biden Takes Credit For Bin Laden Raid When In Reality He OPPOSED It

Re-writing history again

Published

Announcing a troop drawdown in Afghanistan (which was scheduled to happen much sooner under President Trump anyway) Joe Biden claimed credit for the 2011 Navy Seal raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound, even though at the time he OPPOSED it.

As a whopping 1,530 people tuned into Biden’s announcement, he squinted at the teleprompter which claimed that he said in the past that he would “follow Osama Bin Laden to the gates of hell.”

Watch:

Except it wasn’t Biden who said this at all, it was John McCain, who ran AGAINST Biden and Obama in 2008:

Biden only used the “gates of hell” phrase years later in reference to ISIS, but he has never been one to let facts get in the way of a good yarn.

Indeed, when it comes to Bin Laden, Biden actually opposed the raid that supposedly took the Al Qaeda kingpin out.

In 2012, Biden noted “The president, he went around the table with all the senior people, including the chiefs of staff, and he said, ‘I have to make a decision. What is your opinion?’ He started with the national security advisor, the Secretary of State, and he ended with me.”

“He said, ‘Joe, what do you think?’ And I said … ‘Mr. President, my suggestion is, don’t go.’”

Biden has been attempting to erase this priceless nugget for some time now:

Meanwhile, Biden’s ‘decision’ to carry forth Trump’s withdrawal from Afghanistan has surprised and angered several neocon establishment figures, who never want to see the conflict there end.

House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) released a statement Tuesday declaring that the move “abandons our global leadership position, and plays into our adversaries’ hands.”

“President Biden’s decision hands the Taliban and al Qaeda a propaganda victory,” Cheney proclaimed.

Retired Army Gen. and former CIA head David Petraeus added that “Ending U.S. involvement in an endless war doesn’t end the endless war. It just ends our involvement. And I fear that this war is going to get worse.”

Both Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham expressed opposition with the latter calling the decision “a disaster in the making” and “dumber than dirt.”

Practically the only Republican to express agreement with the move was Senator Rand Paul:

One Month Into Presidency Biden BOMBS Syria

Back to the war machine

Published

It took just over one month of a Joe Biden presidency for the US to turn back on the war machine and start raining missiles on Syria again.

Reuters reports that Biden ordered military air strikes in eastern Syria against facilities claimed to be used by Iran-backed militia.

The US reportedly dropped seven 500-pound JDAMs during the airstrike in Al Bukamal, reportedly killed 17 Iran-backed fighters.

The Pentagon says that the strikes were a response to ‘rocket attacks’ on February 15th against US ‘targets’ in Iraq.

Iranian militias have denied that they were involved in attacks against US facilities or troops.

“At President (Joe) Biden’s direction, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria,” a Pentagon statement noted.

“President Biden will act to protect American and Coalition personnel. At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq,” said spokesman John Kirby.

Dropping bombs apparently constitutes ‘de-escalation’ now.

Some called out the hypocrisy, referencing comments from Democrats after Trump allowed a strike to be carried out in Syria almost four years ago:

Then there was also this…

Establishment Republicans are on board with the action, with Representative Michael McCaul, of House Foreign Affairs Committee commenting “Responses like this are a necessary deterrent and remind Iran, its proxies, and our adversaries around the world that attacks on U.S. interests will not be tolerated.”

The action comes after Biden ordered troops to reenter Syria, reversing President Trump’s efforts to wind down the US war machine in the Middle East.

As we previously warned, Biden’s foreign policy team vehemently supported every single disastrous military intervention over the past 2 decades:

The military-industrial complex is back.
