UN rights chief seeks details on Bin Laden killing
ap ^

Posted on 05/03/2011 5:31:13 PM PDT by Typical_Whitey

GENEVA – The U.N.'s top human rights official says the global body wants details on the death of Osama bin Laden.

U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay says the raid on the al-Qaida leader's hideaway in Pakistan "was a complex operation, and it would be helpful if we knew the precise facts surrounding his killing."

Pillay has frequently stressed the importance of respecting international law during counter-terror operations

The response from the White House would be really interesting if Trump were president.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights,

Go F%#$ yourself!

I don’t like this at all. I wouldn’t be surprised if this administration hinted that perhaps the UN should go public with their request for more information. This allows Obama to triangulate and start moving towards middle at least on Osama Bin Laden.

(I can’t believe what I just wrote. Obama is so left that this episode could indicate his positioning to the “middle” on OSAMA BIN LADEN! is there such a thing?)

Maybe his advisors urged him to go to the middle in general. He said we’ll let’s see: abortion? no economy/budget? no foreign policy? no Then Obama said maybe I’ll throw them a bone on Osama.

Dear Top Human Rights Official:
The bullet went through his brain and he died. Those are the details.

Interesting, I said on the night that Holder was going to find someone to indict for the murder of OBL.

So did I call this one? They are so transparent. It was going to happen.

Sadly, the one who will bear the brunt of this is A SEAL! If nothing else he will suffer one of a few things.
1) He will have an "accident" either in battle or some sport of "technical" accident.

2)He will be forced to defend himself legally at his own expense.

3)He will be forced to retire, maybe losing his pension and or benefits.

One or all three things will happen. That is the government M.O. to destroy those who embarrass them, even if was the government that caused it.

Folks mark my word, it is coming

The big deal is the hypocrisy of the LEFT, they used the media to destroy George W. Bush’s credibility by claiming that he authorized torture and called it a war crime against the geneva convention....

but their boy goes and authorizes assasination of the leader of Al Qaeda even though he was unarmed and many were taken alive from the compound. Assasination is a war crime against the geneva convention....

They can’t have it both ways....

Let's not forget the likes of John O. Brennan (BO’s Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism) calling our brave and heroic Navy Seals “assualters”. The MSM picked it up and were freely using the term at the White House briefing today. IDIOTS! Will the UNHR group insist on putting them on trial next?

Oops…Obama forgot to get one of those United Nations Permission Slips before killing Osama. Looks like he’ll have to go on trial at The Hague! Or, perhaps we should tell the UN and the rest of the “Crypto-Commies to put their “everyone deserves their Miranda Rights” bull poop where the Sun doesn’t shine (including John “We should close Gitmo” McCain).

Obama wants to be the Secretary General of the UN. The next opening comes this year in November. The “rotation” shows the next SecGen should come from North America. This investigation could mess up his plans

The U.N. Secretary General cannot come from a nation with a seat on the Security Council, and of course the United States, and Britain, both do.

Watch the UN vacate America. If they can question America’s actions in taking out a common pirate killing American citizen’t then they can question anything. This’ll give them a beginning excuse to move elsewhere as we become a more nationlistic country. They’ll move within 5 yrs, would be my guess.

More to the point as far as the far left liberals and the anti-American UN are concerned, I left out the SEAL offenses: At a minimum they are guilty by UN standards of trespassing on OBL's private property, illegal entry into a sovereign country, discharging a firearm within city limits, littering if they neglected to recover their brass, arson (burning the helo), murder, attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, operating a helo without proper lights, and failing to follow a registered flight plan.

Arrest order?

No, they were seeking him in order to deliver a mildly worded letter of concern over 9-11. But, arrest? Certainly not... that would deprive him of his universal freedoms. But the UN can take solace in the fact he was buried at sea with full muslim honors.

A UN investigation would end up helping BO, so we cant win.

We need to remind people constantly that BO had very little to do with the killing of Bin Laden. The fact that he is going to NY Thurs to take a bow, shows how shallow he is.

And asking GW to join him in a bow/share the glory, shows how rotten this guy BO is from the core.

GW would not have been heading to NY for a bow.

Navi Pillay’s Cronyism

The world of U.N. human rights, best known for a human rights council with members like Libya, Saudi Arabia, and China, has just outdone itself. A short press release on Monday announces that U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay has made some new appointments. The biographies attached leave out a few salient facts – and for good reason. The U.N.’s top human rights officer turns out not to be the model of independence and justice she professes.

Pillay has chosen Sweden’s Lennert Aspegren for the job of “independent expert” and upgraded current U.N. “independent expert” American Mary McGowan Davis to become Aspegren’s boss. Both are charged with assessing how “independently” Israel and its judiciary have responded to the notorious Goldstone Report. But the connections among Pillay, Goldstone, Aspegren and McGowan Davis, as well as other Pillay choices, are dizzying – and disconcerting.

The saga begins a few months after Pillay’s ascendancy to the job of high commissioner in September 2008, during the Gaza war in late 2008 and early January 2009. The U.N. Human Rights Council began the New Year by doing everything in its power to prevent Israel from exercising its right of self-defense against Palestinian rocket attacks emanating from Gaza.

31 May 2010

GENEVA – United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay on Monday condemned the Israeli military interception, in international waters, of a flotilla of ships carrying aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip, which reportedly led to several deaths and numerous injuries, called for an immediate and credible independent inquiry, and urged the lifting of the blockade.

She also urged the Government of Israel to heed the “almost unanimous international view that the continued blockade of Gaza is both inhumane and illegal.”

“The blockade lies at the heart of so many of the problems plaguing the Israel-Palestine situation, as does the impression that the Israeli Government treats international law with perpetual disdain,” she said. “If the blockade had been lifted, there would be no need for flotillas like this.”
