A Letter to Richard Goldstone

Now that the report has been voted out of the Human Rights Council and forwarded to the Security Council, the gamesmanship continues. That it is back center stage is a good thing.

Standing Against the 'Wrong is Right' Goldstone Resolution

Rep. Dennis Kucinich | Posted 05.25.2011 | World
