They're Digging to China

The U.S. State Dept brought up the new Arizona law as an example of U.S. human rights abuse - wait for it - to China.

Posner said in addition to talks on freedom of religion and expression, labor rights and rule of law, officials also discussed Chinese complaints about problems with U.S. human rights, which have included crime, poverty, homelessness and racial discrimination.

He said U.S. officials did not whitewash the American record and in fact raised on its own a new immigration law in Arizona that requires police to ask about a person's immigration status if there is suspicion the person is in the country illegally.

The United States was represented by officials from the State Department, White House, the departments of Commerce, Justice, Homeland Security, Labor, the trade representative's office and the Internal Revenue Service.

So, per the new world order, China is the arbiter of human rights, and Iran is the arbiter of woman's rights.

Meanwhile, Janet Napolitano, the Secretary of Homeland Security and Eric Holder, the Attorney General of the United States, have not even read the new Arizona law. Watch Eric Holder here, Janet Napolitano here.

Power Line Blog has nice write-up on it.
