Unaware Is All?

WHY ARE WE SO IGNORANT TO THE DOUBLE STANDARD?

The following is from today’s Washington Post editorial section entitled UNdiplomatic:

The potential gains for the United States from this summit, as outlined in a contrastingly sane briefing by Assistant Secretary of State Kristen Silverberg on Wednesday, include the launch of a democracy-promotion fund that President Bush called for last year and that U.N. officials have now all but created. Another is the replacement of the U.N.'s Commission on Human Rights -- which mocks its own mission by allowing in countries such as Sudan -- with a more credible body. The summit also offers an opportunity to produce an internationally recognized definition of terrorism that would make it harder for Arab governments to pretend that people who blow up civilians may be viewed as freedom fighters.

Hey there, I was in DC for the last couple of days & read this ridiculous article. It made me wonder if someone's going to recommend sending the Embassadors to one of those bonding retreats where everyone learns to fall backwards into their colleagues arms. Ugh.
