JIMMY CARTER IS A JOKE WITH MASSIVE CHUTZPAH!
Bush's appointed UN Ambassador John Bolton is doing phenomenal work at the UN. He personally negotiated the FIRST EVER Security Council Resolution against Syria (not Israel) in the Middle East when it called for Syrian withdrawal from Lebanon.
He has been ripping to shreds the UN's corruption, sex scandals and its doing turning its back on the Genocide in Sudan thanx to its Arab League buddies.
Note, the eminently respected late Senator from NY Patrick Moynihan (Democrat) was also disgusted by the UN and particularly the UN "Human Rights Commission" (Orwell couldn't of dreamed this one up) composed now of -
- China, Sudan, Libya, Saudi Arabia and Cuba to name a few.
- Btw, the US was kicked off of it.
John Bolton is pushing to get this totally discredited Commission composed of Dictatorial Human Rights violators dismantled and re-formed. However, Jimmy Carter is undermining the United States at the United Nations. The Chutzpah of this guy is amazing!!!!
He is personally making back room deals with totalitarian regimes including Cuba, Egypt, and Pakistan: Carter Seeks Vote in UN Against US.
- President Carter personally called Secretary of State Rice to try to convince her to reverse her U.N. ambassador’s position on changes to the U.N. Human Rights Commission, the former president recalled yesterday in a talk in which he also criticized President Bush’s Christian bona fides and misstated past American policies on Israel.
Mr. Carter said he made a personal promise to ambassadors from Egypt, Pakistan, and Cuba on the U.N. change issue that was undermined by America’s ambassador, John Bolton. “My hope is that when the vote is taken,” he told the Council on Foreign Relations, “the other members will outvote the United States.”
While other former presidents have tried to refrain from attacking the sitting chief executive, Mr. Carter’s attacks on President Bush have increased. The episode he recounted yesterday showed how he tried to undermine officials at lower levels in an effort to influence policy.
The story, as Mr. Carter recalled, began with a recent dinner for 17 he attended in New York, where the guests included the president of the U.N. General Assembly, Jan Eliasson; an unidentified American representative, and other U.N. ambassadors from “powerful” countries at Turtle Bay, of which he mentioned only three: Cuba, Egypt, and Pakistan. The topic was the ongoing negotiations on an attempt to replace the widely discredited Geneva-based Human Rights Commission with a more accountable Human Rights Council.
“One of the things I assured them of was that the United States was not going to dominate all the other nations of the world in the Human Rights Council,” Mr. Carter said. However, on the next day, Mr. Carter said, Mr. Bolton publicly “demanded” that the five permanent members of the Security Council will have permanent seats on the new council as well, “which subverted exactly what I have promised them,” Mr. Carter said.
