James at OTB:

Manfred Nowak, the U.N.’s special rapporteur on torture, proclaimed yesterday that the United States must prosecute the lawyers who drew up the torture memos and that if we fail to do so it is the duty of other states to step in and bring charges.

In my New Atlanticist piece, “UN: United States Must Prosecute Torture Lawyers,” I wonder how the lawyers can be responsible but not President Bush and Attorney General Gonzales.

Well, worse, we’re now going to prosecute legal opinion?
But look, people, let’s get right down to it. We need to tell these morons to get it out of the sunshine. I mean, the UN? Com’on, people.

Ah, yes… the UN. The group that was so instrumental in making so many of its members rich under the table by way of the oil for food program.

The organization that was the provider of so many young bodies for U.N. diplomats with a sexual taste for children. People who, by the way, are still being protected by the U.N. instead of prosecuted.

The organization who has spent so much of its time defending oppressive dictatorships around the world, and has so little in the way of taste for freedom in those places where it can be found, for example the western world.

These are supposed to be the judge and jury of what we did in terms of terrorism, while it stood by and watched the whole thing happen?

Yeah, right. Why the bleep are we subjecting ourselves to THEIR judgment?

Here’s my prescription:
Ignore the United Nations, remove the United States from the United Nations and tell them to get their backsides out of Turtle Bay, in 30 days or less.

Preferably less.
