Obama: International Rogue

Democrats and Republicans have questioned Mr. Obama’s end game, particularly given Washington’s budgetary constraints. Conservatives have attacked the perception that the White House has turned over control of its military assets to the United Nations. With a history of going it alone the idea of the U.S. military under the command of NATO is somewhat disturbing. The idea of a humanitarian mission to Libya compliments of diminished U.S. taxpayers is stunning enough given the fact that last year the Obama Administration invited the United Nations High Commissioner For Human Rights to a “Universal Periodic Review” on the human rights abuses in Arizona. 

The State Department included the state of Arizona’s new immigration law S.B. 1070 in a report to the United Nations Council on Human Rights Committee who reports abuses to the United Nations whose members include such renowned human rights ‘champions’ as Cuba and the very country we are bombing, Libya.

“The idea of our own American government submitting the duly enacted laws of a State of the United States to ‘review’ by the United Nations is internationalism run amok and unconstitutional.  Governor Brewer additionally stated; Human rights as guaranteed by the United States and Arizona Constitutions are expressly protected in S.B. 1070 and defended vigorously by my Administration.”

Is Mr. Obama’s international view of the world so broad as to lay bare the interest of the very country he was elected to serve? It’s an interesting question. Perhaps, he is more comfortable serving the interest of NATO, the UN and the International Alliance than the American people.
