I think that one of the things the United States has to offer the world is our halting, struggling, effort to ensure human rights for our own citizens and to encourage others to respect human rights.
Thus, this should prove very interesting. Our Department of State is submitting us, this fall, to the scrutiny of the "universal periodic review" process, run by the U.N. Human Rights Council. This is the UN Human Rights Council that former President Bush refused to join because it was dominated by nations judged to have bad human rights records.
So, it will be interesting to see how this all turns out this fall.
