The transcript of Claudia Rosett’s presentation speech honoring Crowley’s performance as debate moderator.
If WikiLeaks is serious about their ethical mission, here's a wish list for some additional leaks that might just bring more balance to their self-described pursuit of transparency.
In the Wall Street Journal, Columbia University President Lee Bollinger proposes using your tax dollars to "get the balance right." Uh-oh.
Does President Obama really believe the Israelis are such bigots as to judge him — all things equal — by his middle name? Does he have any evidence for that, or was he drawing on his own stereotype of Israelis?
Has there ever been any initiative in human history in which something with “entity” anywhere in its official title has worked wonders for the emancipation of anyone — male, female, or transgendered?
My own preference? Dissolve the UN's Palestinian refugee agency and turn over its entire budget to private missionaries trying to help North Korean refugees escape from China. That is a genuine refugee crisis.
Gen. McChrystal has been ordered back to Washington following his controversial comments in Rolling Stone. If only Obama had been as eager to clear time on his calendar for him back in 2009. (Update: McChrystal Out, Petraeus In, Ed Driscoll adds.)
Ahmet Davutoglu, who compared the Gaza flotilla incident to 9/11, will be feted tonight in Istanbul by the Woodrow Wilson Center, courtesy of George Soros, the UN ... and the American taxpayer.
It's not the long arc of history that protects and engenders freedom. Give it a rest, already.
Well, that just bought Iran's nuclear program another 2 hours and 54 minutes ... and counting.
Seems like the Turkish and Iranian governments just can't get enough of each other these days. Anyone feeling safer now?
The "peace" flotilla was a purposeful provocation that worked to make Israel the bad guy.
"The real crises are still ahead, and they are not going to be confined to bloody propaganda stunts staged by fake 'peace activists' cruising the Mediterranean."
There is a long history of useful idiots who will sign on for this sort of terror tourism.
The very least the Obama administration could do — immediately — is put North Korea back on the list of state sponsors of terrorism, from which Bush should never have removed it.
Claudia Rosett does the legwork for the rare MSM journalist looking for reports of UN malfeasance: she provides links to the scores of previously secret UN internal audit reports just posted by the U.S. Mission to the UN.
With the Obama administration AWOL, a country that consistently violates human rights is about to win a seat on the Human Rights Council. Update: As Claudia writes in a new post, "All You Need to Know About the UN: 155 Votes for Libya."
The U.S. RSVPed "yes," came knocking at the door, and ate what was served.
The UN’s Economic and Social Council has just elected Iran to a seat on the UN’s women’s rights commission. Wouldn't it be easier to just ship the entire UN, lock, stock and seating arrangements, to Iran? (Update: "Next Up, Libya’s Bid To Join UN Human Rights Council")
A victory for Obama's policy of “engagement”?
Obama's lack of an effective Iran policy is a surprise — but no secret.
A presidential plane crash, a presidential ouster, a sunken warship, and Israeli nuclear scientists who reportedly cannot even get U.S. visas — these sure do seem to be unlucky times for America’s friends.
Massa claims, "I own this behavior." Sorry, Mr. Massa, but you were elected not to serve yourself — but to serve your constituents. (And don't miss Ed Driscoll on "Tickles of Massa Destruction.")
