UN Warns Americans: Do Not Elect Mitt Romney
Breitbart.com ^ | 10/20/2012 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 10/21/2012 8:45:19 AM PDT by Silentgypsy

The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights has warned Americans not to elect Republican Mitt Romney in next month’s presidential election, saying that doing so would be “a democratic mandate for torture.”

The UN’s Ben Emmerson was referring to Romney’s refusal to rule out the use of waterboarding in interrogating terror detainees, a practice that President Barack Obama has ended.

Colin Perkel of The Canadian Press reported Emmerson’s remarks from a symposium in Toronto on the impact of 9/11 on human rights:

"The re-introduction of torture under a Romney administration would significantly increase the threat levels to (Americans) at home and abroad," Emmerson said.

"Such a policy, if adopted, would expose the American people to risks the Obama administration is not currently exposing them to."

U.S. intelligence services were able to pinpoint Osama bin Laden’s location and carry out the successful mission to kill him in May 2011 based on information yielded during waterboarding of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and information from Al Qaeda operative Hassan Ghul, who was captured in Iraq in 2004.

Obama opposed both waterboarding and the Iraq War, without which bin Laden would not have been found.

Emmerson warned that Romney could reinstate waterboarding if he took office. He also criticized the Obama administration’s drone program--an initiative begun by the Bush administration but accelerated by President Obama, partly because of his reluctance to capture, detain or interrogate terror suspects.

In a second term, Obama may renew efforts to close the Guantanámo Bay prison, despite widespread public opposition.

If Romney would promise to peronsally waterboard a terrorist AT HIS INAUGRUATION I would swear to physically drag at least 10 people to the polls to vote for him

Hang on United Nations.

You’ll get your Antichrist and you’ll fete him and join him in beheading Christians.

And when you join in to attack Israel, it will be your end, once and for all time.

Yeah, if this hadn’t been the U.N., I would have almost immediately suspected it as being from the mouth of a Paulbot: Declaring so much to be morally wrong, but not really giving a practical answer.

The United Nations was never a good idea, for many, many reasons. It’s way past time to end our participation in it.

Water boarding in the previous administration is bad, but Predator drone strikes killing terrorists and those nearby is quite alright for the UN human rights types. Just trying to understand modern humanism in application. /s

What does Bennie have to say about Egyptian MB thug Morsi’s track record of torture and murder so far? 88 tortured,34 dead...not counting infidels like dead and burned out Copts.

How about Iran? North Korea?

Ooh, how about Putin’s gentle interrogation methods? How about China?

Sheesh,if only they had warned North Koreans not to vote for Jong-Un.

That’s it. If I was on the fence about Romney, I am not anymore. A four year poke in the UN eye is worth a pull of the lever.

I only hope he is worthy of poking them in the eye.

First of all, seriously, F*** YOU UNITED NATIONS.

Seriously.

Second of all, what the hell is a United Nations Special Rapporteur? Is that like a Hip-Hop version of a reporter?

“If Romney would promise to peronsally waterboard a terrorist AT HIS INAUGRUATION...”

I have at least five, count ‘em, five terrorists to begin this with...der Obamination; Erik der Holder; the brainy Hitlery; Nancy de Pelosi; Harry der Red. Remember, confession is good for the soul, and then of course we know the penalty for treason, to be carried out immediately following the ‘confessions’.

And then we could move on with some serious indoctrination of Mitchy boy and Johnny Bonehead. And maybe one more who needs his head examined...Johnny Robot’er of the not so Supremes...

The un certainly has the moral high ground to talk down to Americans concerning anything where people are brutalized and tortured.

I wonder how all those raped little girls and women in Bosnia, Burundi, Cambodia, Haiti, Ivory Coast, Liberia, South Sudan, The Congo, or oh hell, just anywhere un peace-rapists are running roughshod would say if asked about that?

The sooner that corrupt oozing abscess is excised from Turtle Bay the better for all mankind.

"The re-introduction of torture under a Romney administration would significantly increase the threat levels to (Americans) at home and abroad," Emmerson said.

"Such a policy, if adopted, would expose the American people to risks the Obama administration is not currently exposing them to."

Reads like a terroristic threat to me. Emmerson needs to be on the Predator II al dead ender targeting list.
