Comparison of Zimbabwe, Libya and Guantanamo Bay

Great article posted here.

"It doesn’t matter whether members of our commission come from countries that violate civil rights,” said Manfred Nowak, who passes for an 'anti-torture envoy' with the UN and is one of the authors of a report that recommends the closure of Guantanamo Bay on CNN’s ‘Your World Today’ (2/16/06). This statement offers remarkable insight into the aptitude and priorities of the United Nations while chipping away at any conclusion that this is an objective body with serious opinions.

Thats pretty much spot on. The UN is a joke and the Human Rights Commission is twice the joke. I would just be happy if they would just move the damn thing out of the US we have enough home grown crooked politicians without importing them.
