The irony grew so thick it can be cut with a knife, after it was reported that a UN investigator demands the US hand over documents that would allow for an examination into Bush-era “human rights violations.”
According to multiple online reports, an investigator representing the UN is demanding the US publish classified documents regarding CIA human rights violations, under former President George W. Bush. The hope is the documents “will lead to the prosecution of US public officials.”
Investigator, Ben Emmerson, the UN special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights while countering terrorism, said classified documents, regarding what the Bush administration referred to as “enhanced interrogation techniques,” protect the names of individuals who are responsible for serious human rights violations. “Despite this clear repudiation of the unlawful actions carried out by the Bush-era CIA,” Emmerson said, “many of the facts remain classified and no public official has so far been brought to justice in the United States.”
While Bush himself admitted to personally giving the orders to at least allow “water-boarding” for suspected terrorists in secret CIA prisons, actions the Obama administration supposedly disapproved of but never did anything about, documents alleged to be released Tuesday may end up eventually gathering some attention toward what Mr. Emmerson is calling for.
Although you're likely to find many in America that would completely agree with a full-scale investigation into potential human rights violations by the two-term Bush administration, or the complete declassification of any currently existing related documents, the establishment and its puppet-media are unlikely to publicly dive into and truly expose any involvement by high-level Justice Department or White House officials, unless forced to.
Just from what exists as evidence now, even without the declassification of any official documentation, raises dramatic questions into actions taken by the Bush administration and the individuals that actually handled so-called enhanced interrogations for the establishment. Images from the prisons, where suspected terrorists or enemy combatants were held, many found to have been completely innocent, were utterly horrific and hard to stomach.
But even as disgusting as those images are and the apparent treatment of people who, in many cases, were only suspected of being terrorists, the major irony here is the fact that the one organization owning the least amount of moral authority to be asking for any such investigation may be the United Nations. Actions taken by the UN, throughout the course of it's history, at least, equals any crimes against humanity that may have been perpetrated by anyone in the Bush administration.
Despite the millions of innocent men, women and children that have been killed during the so-called War on “terror,” at the hands of the US and allied forces, not much can compare to the disaster that follows the UN, almost everywhere it goes as well. From the very first time it was involved in any sort of “peace” keeping effort, as far back as the 1940s, basic human rights violations have been at the forefront of it's operations.
Of the many well documented examples, the 60's included the brutal UN attack on the African province of Kantaga, for attempting to gain independence from communist rule in the Congo, in favor of the west.
The atrocities committed by UN troops didn't stop there and, quite frankly, never has. Some of the most heinous crimes against humanity have come in more recent decades, with many instances of major abuses by UN forces in many areas of the world. Documented crimes include racial discrimination, mass murder, drugs and sex trafficking and the raping and physical torture of men, women and children alike.
The reality is, the list of unspeakable crimes by representatives of the United Nations is a huge stack of both proven and admitted actions that, if commissioned, could be published into a large, volume separated encyclopedia of some of the worst humanity has ever had to offer.
Perhaps no irony here can be greater than those highlighted by just how committed to the UN and it's policies the Bush family has been in various ways throughout the years. Most notably was George H.W. Bush's appointment as US Ambassador to the UN in 1971, where he served for two years. And then there's multiple instances, also by daddy Bush, in the early 90's, where he was openly avid about fulfilling the goals and aspirations of the UN's founders, in their ageless quest for a “New World Order.”
It seems as though it may be the UN that needs to be investigated, just as much as anyone else.
