You gotta hand it to the New York Times. They really know how not to provide information.
In an article from yesterday entitled "United States and Uzbekistan Discuss More Supply Routes," we are informed that because, "the United States and Pakistan are locked in a diplomatic crisis over accusations linking Pakistan’s chief intelligence agency to militant attacks on Americans in Afghanistan," the U.S. is resuming relations with Uzbekistan "despite its poor human rights record."
That is an understatement. The country is led by a sadistic dictator that makes Saddam Hussein look like an angel. The guy takes dissidents and boils them alive (sometimes it's the mothers of the dissidents).
|President Obama's friend in Uzbekistan boils people alive.|
A British ambassador to the country, Craig Murray, who "was the United Kingdom’s Ambassador to Uzbekistan until he was removed from his post in October 2004 after exposing appalling human rights abuses by the US-funded regime of President Islam Karimov," is censored by the BBC over his actions and has come out with a memoir (see previous link).
We are re-cozying up to an evil dictator because his country is useful for "supply routes" in our illegal war of aggression against Afghanistan. This is the legacy of Mr. Hopey Change.
