A chief deputy under Hillary Clinton at the U.S. State Department went to Geneva's U.N. Human Rights Council to sit in front of representatives from other countries so the United States could be chastised about its record on Human Rights. Michael Posner, who is already known for apologizing to the Chinese for Arizona's audacity to sign a bill into law that would allow it to protect its citizens, willingly sat in front of the worst of the worst when it comes to human rights abuses and took their abuse.

Via Fox News:
The Obama administration got a new “shellacking” this morning, this one entirely voluntary. In the name of improving America’s image abroad, it sent three top officials from the State Department to Geneva’s U.N. Human Rights Council to be questioned about America’s human rights record by the likes of Cuba, Iran, and North Korea.

This was the first so-called “universal periodic review” of human rights in the U.S. by the Council, which the Obama administration decided to join in 2009.

The move represents a striking departure from prior American foreign policy, which has been to ratify selected human rights treaties after due consideration and submit American policy-makers to recommendations based on well-conceived standards accepted by the United States.

But in the three-hour inquisition which took place this morning, Michael Posner, Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor responded with “thanks to very many of the delegations for thoughtful comments and suggestions” shortly after Cuba said the U.S. blockade of Cuba was a “crime of genocide,” Iran “condemned and expressed its deep concern over the situation of human rights” in the United States, and North Korea said it was “concerned by systematic widespread violations committed by the United States at home and abroad.”
So the United States is allowing itself to be lectured by North Korea, Cuba, and Iran on how it treats its citizens - and illegal aliens. If Posner was grilled over our abortion record in this country, I might feel a bit better about this.

Log, meet speck.

HERE is more on Posner's antics with China.
