Leaving a giant turd on the front lawn of life:
GENEVA (Reuters) – U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour, who confirmed on Friday she would leave her post at the end of June, said that countries cannot trample fundamental freedoms when fighting terrorism.Â
“Gitmo is the problem”:Â
“Let me emphasize once again the need for respecting human rights, as well as for greater transparency and accountability, when countering terrorism,” Arbour told the U.N. Human Rights Council, presenting a final annual report of her four-year term.Â
In a parting shot at some Council members, she said in her speech that “allegations of bias, hypocrisy and dereliction of duty” against her or her staff were “outside the acceptable range” of debate.
“Such statements demean the Human Rights Council and betray the good faith efforts of all those working in the United Nations on very difficult and divisive issues,” she said
