(Sharona Schwartz) U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice took to Twitter Tuesday evening to slam a UN human rights official for suggesting the Boston bombings were an expected result of U.S. foreign policy.
Richard Falk, a Special Rapporteur with the UN Human Rights Council wrote in the Foreign Policy Journal that “the American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world.”
“The United States has been fortunate not to experience worse blowbacks, and these may yet happen, especially if there is no disposition to rethink U.S. relations to others in the world, starting with the Middle East,” he wrote.
Ambassador Rice tweeted: “Outraged by Richard Falk’s highly offensive Boston comments. Someone who spews such vitriol has no place at the UN. Past time for him to go.”
