Michael Posner: U.S. assistant secretary of state for democracy, human rights and labor. Samantha Power: Presidential adviser on human rights. Neither position is directly related to matters of "security! security! security! terror! terror! terror!". Don't assume that the USA's security council veto is a shoe-in on this one....... Israel needs to do what the USA wants on this issue or this issue is heading for the ICC, because if Israel continues to sit on its hands then the USA might just decide that two can play that game.
