How Apropos: Obama Concludes His Term By Voting "Present" At the UN

The United Nations Security Council has passed a previously postponed vote to end Israeli settlements after the U.S. abstained from voting. 

U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power gave a statement after the vote saying that the U.S. chose not to vote on the resolution "because the resolution is too narrowly focused on settlements." She began her statement in the Security Council with the words of Ronald Reagan in 1985 that settlements are “in no way necessary for the security of Israel” and “only diminishes the confidence of Arabs.”

As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th.
