WND's Klein Smears Obama Adviser As 'Anti-Semitic'
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Last year, WorldNetDaily's Aaron Klein lied that Obama adviser Samantha Power "gave an interview in 2008 where she wanted to bring a mammoth protection force -- pay attention -- to the Palestinian territories." In fact, Power was not advocating an invasion of Israel, as Klein suggested; rather, her reference to a "mammoth protection force" was in response to a hypothetical question about a move toward geoncide by "one party or another" in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the size of the peacekeeping force that would be needed to stop a genocide from happening.

Now that Power has been selected to White House Atrocities Prevention Board , Klein is back to lie about Power some more, this time upping the ante by smearing her as "anti-Semitic." Klein writes in an April 24 article that "Power was referring to pro-Israel groups using language some would consider anti-Semitic by implying such groups maintain inordinate power in U.S. politics."

At no point, however, does Klein identify what the purportedly anti-Semitic "language" is that Power used, or who the "some" is that would consider it so.

In other words, it's nothing but a baseless, vicious smear, from a vicious smear artist.

The rest of Klein's article is nothing by desperate guilt-by-association of the kind Klein does so often.
