This is the same United Nations to which John Kerry would subordinate the USA.
A quick sampling recent stories.
"The war in Iraq has sidetracked everyone away from Sudan, the place of the worst human rights nightmare on the planet. Taking advantage of this situation, the Khartoum regime has stepped up its genocidal warfare against its own people," Dr. Charles Jacobs, president of the American Anti-Slavery Group said.And then there is this:
Human rights campaigners are outraged that a United Nations report alleging grave abuses in western Sudan is being withheld from a UN debate on the issue.Uh...that would be the same government the UN just elected to the Human Rights commission.
The international body's Commission on Human Rights is due to discuss the crisis in Darfur, where up to a million people have been displaced.
The debate has been delayed by behind-the-scenes negotiations with the European Union seeking a harsher resolution than African delegates want.
The report, seen by the BBC, details claims of rape, looting and killing by militias with government help.
If this were fiction no one would believe it.
