Samantha Power Tapped for NSC Post

Pulitzer prize winning author and primary-era Obama adviser Samantha Power has been tapped for a job on the National Security Council as senior director for multilateral affairs. NSC job descriptions get a little hazy, but she’ll be joining a very strong emerging team on the NSC staff that includes Denis McDonough, Mara Rudman, and Mark Lippert as well as General Jones at the top of the pyramid. Among other things, Power recommends that you buy and read Heads in the Sand.
