NewsBusters' Matt Vespa Lies About Samantha Power
Topic: NewsBusters

In addition to writing for NewsBusters, Matt Vespa also has a blog at PJ Media. In a June 6 PJ Media post, Vespa falsely claimed that Samantha Power, President Obama's nominee for U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, "endorsed an invasion of Israel to prevent future genocide."

In fact, as the transcript of the Power conversation Vespa includes in his item makes clear, Power was talking about the need for a "mammoth protection force" to keep the peace if "at least if one party or another" starts "moving toward genocide" in a Middle East with a Palestinian state in order to prevent a "Rwanda scenario." At no point does Power even mention invading Israel, let alone endorse it.

Despite being proven wrong by his own blog, Vespa concluded by sneering, "For the 70% of American Jews that voted for Obama in 2012, I hope you’re happy."
