Human Rights

I almost fell off my chair laughing when I read this. The White House announced that Obama will not be attending the summit in Russia due to among other things, “given our lack of progress on issues such … human rights and civil society”. Say what??!!! Human rights? You mean like the ones people have been denied in Guantanamo Bay, or perhaps the ones that will killed in faceless drone attacks, based on intelligence that they are “guilty” or otherwise, without trial. That is just a little rich.
