UN Warns Americans: Do Not Elect Mitt Romney

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.
Colin Perkel of The Canadian Press reported Emmerson’s remarks from a symposium in Toronto on the impact of 9/11 on human rights:
[quote]“The re-introduction of torture under a Romney administration would significantly increase the threat levels to (Americans) at home and abroad,” Emmerson said.
“Such a policy, if adopted, would expose the American people to risks the Obama administration is not currently exposing them to.”
The UN Commission on Human Rights is a cynical joke, having at pretty much any time in the past 10 or more years some of the worst human rights violating countries in the world as members. The US needs to evict the UN and deport every UN Ambassador (including Susan Rice!) to a West African hell-hole (partially made such by UN people!).
