Have you no shame, sir?

Our Drug Czar finished up his speech in Vienna with the following:

President Bush has recently called for the United States to engage the world in a renewed campaign to realize the core principles of our nation and of the United Nations: human rights, human dignity, and human freedom. When we push back against illegal drug use, we help establish these fundamental principles more securely for all our nations.

“bullet” Dogs sniffing cars, and task forces smashing down doors in pre-dawn military-style raids — I guess that’s what human rights looks like.
“bullet” Innocent school children and employees peeing in a cup — that must be the sound of human dignity.
“bullet” Having 5% of the world’s population, yet 25% of the world’s prison population — that would be our leadership in human freedom.
Thanks, John.
