    Were they not following orders that were deemed legal by the Justice Dept?


    "I was just following orders." didn't save the Germans and Japanese who were hanged after WWII, eh?

    China, Cuba and Russia "defy their seats " on the UN Human Rights Council by showing up

    The UN loses all semblance of credibility ( it never had any to begin with ) by appointing Nations with terrible Human Rights violations to a council thats tasked to monitor them.

    Just admit that you don't care who charges the US with " Human Rights violations "

    Just as long as it perpetuates the same stale left wing nonsense that was parroted around when Bush was in office.

    And do you find countries who torture their own citizens, who ignore UN law, 'paying a heavy price'? How so?

    That might be an acceptable compromise.

    I'm truly ashamed we have people like you in the US.


    "Timmy did it too." has always been a mighty poor excuse for bad behavior. Check with your mama on this.

    That's not going to happen. Wait and see.

    Those who were 'tortured' during the Bush Administration are still alive today.

    This is not the case with Obama and his drone program where everyone in the vicinity of the explosion is dead and with no intelligence gathered. Yet Leftists appear okay with this bizarre approach. Can you explain this attitude?

    That's why world problems remain world problems in spite of any and all UN rhetoric and posturing.


    The way the UN is set up, with Security Council veto power, makes it almost impossible for it to be an effective organization.
