What did the Obama administration have to say about this farce? Nothing.
Hillary Clinton was perfectly capable of going to Canada and reproaching the Canadians for their abortion policies, and she has insisted that her foreign policy would be especially attuned to women's issues, but her United Nations ambassador had nothing to say about putting Iran on a Commission about the status of women.
When it comes to offending the mullahs all that talk about speaking truth to power becomes just that, a lot of talk.
[For those who would like a more comprehensive and frightening article on the way Iran treats women, I recommend this story by Tim Cavanaugh at Reason.com. Link here.]
