writes about the disgusting former UN commissioner for Human Rights named Mary Robinson, whom president Obama awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom when she doesn't deserve it. Her offenses even include opposition to the war in Iraq:
In that same year, Robinson would take up a professorship at Columbia University in New York. Discussing the Iraq war in a November 2005 interview with Reuters, she remarked cheerfully that “what I find living now in the United States is an encouraging, wide sense of some of the checks and balances kicking in. … In Congress you have, at last, a sense, of ‘we were misled, we should have been more attentive.’” “It was not a legitimate war,” Robinson told Reuters flatly, “and I am glad that more and more people … are coming out to say so.” “The poor, beleaguered people of Iraq are not better off,” she added.
Yes, Robinson is one of the most disgusting so-called politicians around, and people who care need to call for her award to be revoked.
