4 anti-American videos of Obama’s UN ambassador nominee

SOME CURRENT SECURITY THREATS STEM FROM AMERICA’S PAST HUMAN RIGHTS PRACTICES (2003)

“There is a realization that some portion of our security threat now is linked to our human rights practices in the past. Those could include human rights abuses committed by past administrations…or it could be bystanding in the face of genocide.”

“It is clear the ways in which having a foreign policy that is often antithetical to our values or at best is inconsiderate of our values, how it actually comes back and harms U.S. interests in the long term.”

“Some of the resentment toward the United States is born simply of this gross military, economic and cultural supremacy and hegemony, but a lot of it is based also on things that we do as a country.”

WAR ON TERROR IS NOT AN EXCUSE FOR ABETTING POSSIBLE GENOCIDE BY NATIONS LIKE RUSSIA (2002)

“Look at what we’re doing in the War on Terror. We’re about to partner with regimes that if they’re not committing genocide they are certainly committing systematic atrocities against their people. Will somebody else write a book about that and say that we abetted the Russian genocide against the Chechens because we were fighting a war on terror and needed Putin on our side? Maybe. But we now, because we’re living in the time, understand our mindset and why we’re doing it. I don’t think we should excuse it. I think we should change our policy.”

AMERICA SHOULD ACCEPT THE AUTHORITY OF THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT (2003)

“Probably the court will end up functioning for a while, hopefully not in a way that shows (U.S) our neglect, that is hopefully it functions properly, judiciously, you know, in a politically sensible way, not making frivolous charges against, you know, the United States — frivolous charges — other kinds of charges it is well entitled to make.”

U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL NEEDS A SHAKEUP — AND PERMANENT ISLAMIC MEMBER (2004)

“If the war on terrorism is the defining event of our time, can we really persist in having no country from the Middle East, no country with much of an Islamic tradition at all, represented on the Security Council in any kind of permanent way?”

“There are lots of things we could do. We could decide that the Security Council no longer has the legitimacy that we once gave it…maybe the Secretary General himself has to be the authorizer.”
