Under My Bus: Amnesty International 'Shocked' By Hillary

You believed us, suckers

The latest to be served up on the platter are the useful idiots from Amnesty International, who never utter a peep while there's a Democrat in the White House. Bought, paid for and heck, they'll park cars if you ask.

Or so we thought. Now here they are, a month to the day of the Dawning of the Age of Obama, and thump, thump, is that the bus running over them already?

Amnesty International and a pro-Tibet group voiced shock Friday after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton vowed not to let human rights concerns hinder cooperation with China.

Paying her first visit to Asia as the top US diplomat, Clinton said the United States would continue to press China on long-standing US concerns over human rights such as its rule over Tibet.

"But our pressing on those issues can't interfere on the global economic crisis, the global climate change crisis and the security crisis," Clinton told reporters in Seoul just before leaving for Beijing.
Everything's a crisis, apparently.
T. Kumar of Amnesty International USA said the global rights lobby was "shocked and extremely disappointed" by Clinton's remarks.
How naive are these people? They're disappointed?

What exactly did they expect? Don't they realize mythical climate change is much more important than human rights?
"The United States is one of the only countries that can meaningfully stand up to China on human rights issues," he said.

"But by commenting that human rights will not interfere with other priorities, Secretary Clinton damages future US initiatives to protect those rights in China," he said.
I hope he realizes he's on his own. Expect little help from this administration.

Hate to put it this way, but this is Mrs. Clinton's likely reaction.
