The problem with Power is not just her “invade Israel” policy that she advocated in her 2002 interview with a professor from, naturally, the University of California at Berkeley.
She is pro-American just like she is pro-Israel.
Anti-Americanism proves that the United States is wrong, in her opinion. Power stated in a New Republic article in 2003, “Much anti-Americanism derives from the role U.S. political, economic, and military power has played in denying such freedoms to others… We need a historical reckoning with crimes committed, sponsored, or permitted by the United States.”
She is a fighter for human rights, so much so that she likes the idea of using the American military to police Israel, the Balkans and Libya.
Interestingly, she never has said that the U.S. Army should patrol the streets of Iran.
Or Saudi Arabia.
