  •  Samantha Power on the spot (5+ / 0-)

    the international stuff:

    NY Times on Power:

    “Most diplomats in a career of 40 years would never get this kind of opportunity to make such a difference at such a critical moment,” said Edward C. Luck, the dean of the School of Peace Studies at the University of San Diego and a former senior United Nations adviser on peacekeeping issues. “The stakes could not be higher.”
    Angela Merkel:
    Chancellor Angela Merkel scored a stunning personal triumph Sunday in the national elections in Germany, becoming the only major leader to be re-elected twice since the financial crisis of 2008 and winning a strong popular endorsement for her mix of austerity and solidarity in managing troubled Europe.
    and of course, today, Kenya.
    The standoff at a luxury mall in Nairobi, which the Kenyan authorities had vowed would end Sunday night, entered a third day Monday heralded by volleys of gunfire, the boom of explosions and a column of thick, black smoke rising from the besieged shopping center.
