Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida. In the wake of the nomination of Samantha Power for United Nations ambassador by U.S. President Barack Obana, Chairwoman of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee U.S. and U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fl) said that “the United Nations is an institution in need of serious reform.”

“The UN needs someone who can work to bring true reforms to that mismanaged institution, and I hope Samantha Power has the desire and the ability to recognize what corrective actions need to be taken, and will push back and fight harder against the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, anti-United States agenda in that body,” she said.

Ros-Lehtinen also noted that Susan Rice, the current U.S. ambassador to the UN who is moving to a post as Obama’s national security adviser, “was unable to institute positive changes to fix this broken system. She brought a more laissez-faire approach to a problem that needs someone willing to roll up her sleeves and make reform a priority,” the Sunshine State News reported.
