Here's a list of our new allies in Human Rights:
Cameroon, China, Cuba, Iran, Pakistan, Russia, Senegal, Sudan and Zimbabwe
Of our new allies, not a single one is even "partly free" according to Freedom House.
Our new allies joined the US in blocking gay and lesbian NGOs from serving on a UN panel specifically designed to hear from NGOs, "The U.N. panel is a think tank of nongovernmental agencies from around the world." Congressman Barney Frank, openly gay, seemed to be very disappointed in Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Chile, Peru and Romania were among those who voted for inclusion, while the United States did not. Wow.
