UN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION....I'm not a UN basher. Sure, it's a huge bureacracy, and sure, it has its share of corruption, but you can say that about any large organization. My problem with the UN bashers is that they aren't truly concerned about either bureaucracy or corruption, both of which could be improved over time if the reformers acted in good faith, but with the simple fact that the United States is not guaranteed of always getting its way in the UN.

Still, having said that, Dan Drezner is right: the UN Human Rights Commission is a travesty. It really deserves to be put out of its misery.
