UN Human Rights Official Blames US for Boston Bombing, Keeps Job

The UN “Human Rights Council” thinks it’s perfectly acceptable to blame the United States for the actions of the Boston Bombers; if they didn’t agree with him, they’d have already shown him the door:

The United Nations official who angered critics by blaming the Boston Marathon bombing on “American global domination” will keep his post, because not enough other countries took offense at his comments.

Richard Falk, the United Nations Human Rights Council’s Palestinian Territories monitor, will remain on the job until his mandate expires in mid-2014. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has rejected Falk’s comments, but the council’s 47 member states have no plans to force him out.

“Professor Falk is appointed by member states of the Human Right Council in Geneva and not by the secretary-general,” U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky told Fox News. “So it is within the domain of the Human Rights Council and member states to determine the appointment and work of special rapporteurs. It is up to them to decide.”
