Obama team to sit with UN 'human rights' wackos
The Obama administration decided Tuesday to seek a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council, reversing a decision by the Bush administration to shun the United Nations' premier rights body to protest the influence of repressive states.Obama seems to have the belief that casting ones pearls of wisdom before swine can have some benefit. Experience suggest that when it comes to the UN human rights organization, they don't deal in human rights but in the perpetuation of religious and ethnic bigotry toward the West and Israel, We should not be giving them any credibility by our presents.
"Human rights are an essential element of American global foreign policy," Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said in a statement. "With others, we will engage in the work of improving the U.N. human rights system. . . . We believe every nation must live by and help shape global rules that ensure people enjoy the right to live freely and participate fully in their societies."
The United States announced it would participate in elections in May for one of three seats on the 47-member council, joining a slate that includes Belgium and Norway.
