    The US has lost its moral compass

    Colcam informs us of comments made by former Irish president, Mary Robinson:

    Talking about America's opposition to a new UN Human Rights Council, she said: "It illustrates the seismic shift which has taken place in the relation of the US to global rule of law issues. Today, the US no longer leads, but is too often seen merely to march out of step with the rest of the world."

    Mrs Robinson spoke of the US government's use of Big Brother-style language to cover up their activities.

    "Misuse of language has also led to Orwellian euphemisms, so that ’coercive interrogation’ is used instead of torture, or cruel and inhuman treatment; kidnapping becomes ’extraordinary rendition’," she said.
