Taliban begins peace-talk with United States.
Not so much hope and freedom of speech for Julian Assange Wikileaks founder, under the auspices of Barack Obama. Fine rhetoric by Obama on human rights without action. Do the right thing Obama. Credit should be given where it is due. Does American rights trump basic universal values such as human rights? Its time for Obama to do the right thing and join the forces of Change. Wikileaks led to Arab Uprising which liberated and gave voices to the half of worlds’ population.

Why do we extract and focuses on the negative said by Ahmedinejad and absolutely omit the intelligence behind his rhetoric. He sincerely believes in humanity and finds human rights abuse despicable. This being said, we must remember that, even United States of America continues to conduct and carry out significant human right abuse in other nations from secret prisons in Poland to Abugraib prison in Iraq, not to mention the water boarding and torture carried out by George W Bush administration. Obviously i do not agree with everything Ahmedinejad suggests, the same way i do not believe in all of Obama’s policy. We are so keen on freedom of speech but our myopic memory span forgets Wikileaks so quickly. Whats the difference in these two scenario?
