All I can say is, has a certain geographical place, way way deep underground, suddenly froze over?
When it comes to reforming the disgraceful United Nations Human Rights Commission, America’s ambassador, John Bolton, is right; Secretary General Kofi Annan is wrong; and leading international human rights groups have unwisely put their preference for multilateral consensus ahead of their duty to fight for the strongest possible human rights protection. A once-promising reform proposal has been so watered down that it has become an ugly sham, offering cover to an unacceptable status quo. It should be renegotiated or rejected.
Yeah, that’s the New York Times. It must have been a hard one for them to swallow, especially when the focus of their praise is someone like John Bolton, the recess appointee anointed by the great satan they call George W. Bush.
Strange days indeed.
