Even the U.N. Gets It

Thursday, March 01, 2007

I don't give the United Nations a lot of credit, and, quite frankly, I wouldn't mind it if they disbanded, but this morning I read an article where Louise Arbour, the U.N. human rights chief expressed concern that "recent U.S. legislative and judicial actions ... leave hundreds of detainees without any way to challenge their indefinite imprisonment." The article goes on to state:
Arbour was critical of the ruling, calling on the judicial system to "rise to its long-standing reputation as a guardian of fundamental human rights and civil liberties and provide the protection to all that are under the authority, control, and therefore in my view jurisdiction of the United States."
If even an inept organization such as the United Nations can recognize the travesty of our newly-minted Military Commissions Act, you know it has to be bad.
