Look, Jarretts defenders might say, theres nothing wrong with being powerful. Somebody has to be powerful. And thats true, but there is something wrong with abusing power. Consider this passage from Beckers Times piece, describing Jarretts ways: She can also be imperious at one event ordering a drink from a four-star general she mistook for a waiterand attached to the trappings of power in a way some in the White House consider unseemly for a member of the staff. Attached to the trappings of power how, exactly? Here comes the answer: A case in point is her full-time Secret Service detail. The White House refuses to disclose the number of agents or their cost, citing security concerns. But the appearance so worried some aides that two were dispatched to urge her to give the detail up. She listened politely, one said, but the agents stayed. So lets get this straight: Jarrett gets a security detail from the US Secret Service (USSS). That means 24/7 protection, at a cost of millions of dollars a year. Of course, it also means an air of importance for Jarrett--her own taxpayer-funded entourage. The idea that someone such as Jarrett--who officially plays no role in national security or counter-terrorism--would receive USSS protection would be laughable if it werent, in fact, real. Its like a tale out of the Versailles Court of the Sun King--the sort of anecdote that provokes the peasants, eventually, to revolution. But in the meantime, before the deluge, Jarrett plans to live it up; surrounded by agents with guns, she is queen of her own court. In other words, for pure conspicuous consumption, Jarrett puts her fellow Chicagoan, the laughably self-important Desirée Rogers, to shame.

Sticking our Ambassador in a hostile country, in an insecure 'consulate', without adequate protection should be grounds for impeachment.
This is beyond outrageous
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Talk about waste of tax-payer money.....
She is the power behind the empty throne.
It’s all a matter of priorities and special people.
Never mind the locale.
Mistook? BS.....Hitlery did the same thing and she and Bill thought it was HILARIOUS. Everyone knows that story. Jarrett hat tipped the Clinton's with that move.
Watching riots in Cairo ongoing now (on FOX) and thinking our Foreign Policy is being run by a stealth Muslim (Obama), his Iranian-born puppetmaster (Jarrett), and the Secretary of State whose girlfriend is Muslim Brotherhood up to her eyebrows. Gee .... no wonder it’s not working out so well for America these days.
This is shameful. It’s not even troll season. If it was troll season I could certainly see her need for protection.
Marines are not allowed live ammo.....
Jarrett was born in Iran.
That bullshit policy worked so well for us in Lebanon....
[She is the power behind the empty throne.]
She and the rest of the czars are the official ‘aimers’ of this regime. A job obama can’t or won’t do...he’s just PRESENT.
Probably a good idea.........
Hillary's top Adviser comes from a family associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Valerie jarrett; the Martin Bormann of the Obamanation.
Things that make you go hmmmm.
Don't forget those other foreign policy geniuses, Susan Rice and Samantha Power - commies both.
Jarrett was also born in IRAN.
