The Foxes Are Still Guarding the Henhouse

Last Friday, seven governments that abuse human rights were elected to the United Nation’s Human Right Council: Ethiopia, Gabon, Ivory Coast, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates and Venezuela. The UN’s Human Rights Council, remember, was created in 2006 to replace the UN’s Human Rights Commission, which had become a platform for human rights abusers to deflect criticism.
