COMMENT: Samantha Power is also the wife of White House Information Czar Cass Sunstein, who has called for outright limitations on free speech and the infiltration of conspiracy theorists, etc., etc. See PRIMER on Cass Sunstein’s work.

A flattering New York Times profile has increased speculation that Samantha Power, the Dublin-born aide to President Obama, could be his next Secretary of State or National Security Adviser.
She has been the main architect, along with Hillary Clinton, of the Libya policy and has an increasing influence in the White House inner circle.
No Irish-born person in recent history has had such influence on a president. Power, now 40, moved to the US from Ireland at age 10.
