And why is he mean?
(Breitbart) The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights has warned Americans not to elect Republican Mitt Romney in next month’s presidential election, saying that doing so would be “a democratic mandate for torture.”
The UN’s Ben Emmerson was referring to Romney’s refusal to rule out the use of waterboarding in interrogating terror detainees, a practice that President Barack Obama has ended.
Without waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation methods Obama would never be able to say he personally jumped out of a helicopter and shot Osama in the head.
Emmerson warned that Romney could reinstate waterboarding if he took office. He also criticized the Obama administration’s drone program–an initiative begun by the Bush administration but accelerated by President Obama, partly because of his reluctance to capture, detain or interrogate terror suspects.
So, Obama is a big meanie, too, but, Romney is the ultimate big meanie, so don’t elect him, because he might be mean to jihadis who would be happy to slowly saw Emmerson’s head off.
Blazing Cat Fur says this is the UN shilling for Obama. The Jawa Report says this is the best endorsement for Romney. Glenn Reynolds says this is a real shocker, and “that sovereigns have an inherent right to protect their citizens…”
And let’s not forget that a UN partner will break our sovereignty to monitor our elections. Who wants to bet that they will find all sorts of problems that benefit Obama? That they will report lots of fraud by Republicans, and virtually none by Democrats?
