    If you were trying to put together a global all-star team of the most authoritarian, human rights abusing nations on earth, not only would Saudi Arabia be at the top of the list, it would be captain of the squad.

    In a move as embarrassing, laughable and tragic as Barack Obama receiving the Nobel Peace Prize just as he was about to embark upon several overseas wars and drone countless civilians to death without due process, the United Nations has, remarkably, named Saudi Arabia head of it’s human rights panel.

    Of course, this is something I warned of back in May in the post, Saudi Arabia is Making a Play to Head the U.N. Human Rights Council. Here are a few excerpts:

    The UN human rights panel has been a standing joke for years.

    This just continues the tradition.

    You have that right .... anything with the letters U.N. attached to it has been a big joke. Money can buy most countries a seat at their table. :tear:

    Its not about money at all... Just look at the UN Logo: a 1000 year old flat earth map, overlayed by an 8 pointed star of Ishtar, surrounded by a ring with 13 leafs(segments) on each side, standing on a Fundament of 2 branches(Antichrist & false Prophet). It couldnt be much more blatant really...

    This is the recurring POTUS philosophy - Let the inmates run the insane asylum.

    So I guess this means the Saudis are all on-board with the whole LGBT agenda, yes?

    Wikileaks Exposes Secret Deal to Get Saudi Arabia on UN Human Rights Council

    (ANTIMEDIA) United Kingdom — Two years after the controversial appointment of Saudi Arabia to the U.N. Human Rights Council, leaked diplomatic cables have revealed the U.K. was a key player in the election of the Gulf State ─ despite the Saudis’ appalling human rights record.

    The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHCR) is tasked with the promotion and protection of human rights throughout the world. What’s remarkably under-reported (yet unsurprising) is the claim that notorious human rights abuser, Saudi Arabia, pledged $1 million to UNHRC prior to winning the blood-stained seat.

    What is surprising is the next chapter in the farcical saga.

    In a classic case of you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours, the leaked cables ─ translated by U.N. Watch ─ allege that a secret vote trading deal was made by Britain and Saudi Arabia to ensure both countries were elected to the council.

    Passed to Wikileaks in June, the classified files refer to Saudi talks with British diplomats prior to the November 2013 vote in New York.

    One read: “The delegation is honoured to send to the ministry the enclosed memorandum, which the delegation has received from the permanent mission of the United Kingdom asking it for the support and backing of the candidacy of their country to the membership of the human rights council (HRC) for the period 2014-2016, in the elections that will take place in 2013 in the city of New York.”

    The leaked files then elaborate on the trading of “support” between the two countries:
