Ah, the good old United

Ah, the good old United Nations. It recently elected Libya (yes, LIBYA) to head up the U.N. Commission on Human Rights. It makes sense, since Libya, according to human rights groups, is one of the top 6 most repressive regimes in the world. I’m increasingly frustrated at the U.N.’s ability to do anything productive these days but this just makes U.N. supporters look simply ridiculous and asinine.
From the UN press release: “Upon her election, Ambassador Al-Hajjaji said the Commission must affirm the universality, indivisibility and complementarity of human rights, and that it must send a clear message that it will deal with human rights in all countries – not just some of them – taking into account the different religious, cultural and historical backgrounds in the world.”
