Nuance

So, the Obama Administration has decided it wants to be a part of the United Nations Human Rights Commission, which serves mainly as a forum for bashing our staunchest ally in the Middle East. I found the following very interesting:

Asked if Washington would attempt to shield Israel from criticism if it wins a seat on the council, [US ambassador to the UN Susan] Rice said, "The Human Rights Council has the potential to be and should be a venue for dealing with the most egregious instances of human rights abuses."

"And we are running for a seat on the council because we believe that human rights are universal, they need to be universally respected," she added.
Um, notice that she didn't, you know, actually answer the question. Huh.
