What's next-- beheadings on the floor of the UN?
UN elects notorious abusers to new rights councilAFP
The UN General Assembly elected Cuba, China and Saudi Arabia to the new Human Rights Council, putting notorious abusers on a panel created to replace its discredited predecessor.
Why do we continue to support this farce? The crystal clarity of this decision becomes more obvious everyday.
And while we are at it, Kofi Annan's conflicts of interest must be investigated .
As Kofi Annan limps into his final few months as UN Secretary-General, questions mount about his judgment and personal integrity. Annan has talked piously about accountability and transparency and the supposed winds of change sweeping through the UN, but his own leadership has been imperial in style and hugely dismissive of criticism. A secretive culture of impunity still dominates the upper echelons of the UN Secretariat.
Kofi is a pig.
UPDATE: Only left wing press could spin it like this.......how do they think these things up?
