Thanks to outrage over FIFA's 2022 host country decision, Qatar is in the spotlight. And they're not doing well. But as a typical American with very little interest in soccer, or football for that matter, I've been amazed at how the FIFA World Cup may be doing for human rights what years of earnest blogging has been unable to achieve. So I want to thank John Oliver for putting it in terms even I can understand. Watch all 13 minutes to get the button.
