Evidently, in the Obama admistation, Power is not so smart. To have a foreign policy based on “Smart Power” you first must have smart diplomats. It is easy to see why the Obama administration so-called Smart Power foreign policy is failing so miserably, via via PJ Tatle r:
Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, hoped that a team of UN investigators â€” many of whom, presumably, have a longstanding relationship with Iranian leaders â€” could write a report that would convince Iran to abandon its ally at the behest of the United States.
“We worked with the UN to create a group of inspectors and then worked for more than six months to get them access to the country on the logic that perhaps the presence of an investigative team in the country might deter future attacks,” Power said at the Center for American Progress as she made the case for intervening in Syria.
“Or, if not, at a minimum, we thought perhaps a shared evidentiary base could convince Russia or Iran â€” itself a victim of Saddam Hussein’s monstrous chemical weapons attacks in 1987-1988 â€” to cast loose a regime that was gassing it’s people,” she said.
There are no words to describe the stupidity that infests the Obama government. Well, there may be one: Immature. Or another: Naive

I think this is final proof that The One and his band of happy progressives have been into the wrong mushrooms.
Given the idiots at the top of the Foggy Bottom food chain, it is easy to see my the we allowed or foreign policy to be eaten way by the ilk of Bradly “Juct call me Chelsea” and Edward Snowden.
