Ben Emmerson, a notorious defender of terrorists and the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights decided to go ahead and threaten Americans with legal action if they vote for Romney.
First we're getting election monitors, thanks to requests from the NAACP and other groups associated with the Democratic Party who for some reason claim that their own Attorney General running the most intrusive and abusive DOJ since RFK is incapable of handling the job.
The observers, from countries such as Germany, France, Serbia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, will observe voting at polling places and other political activity.
Kazakhstan hasn't held a single election deemed fair by those same observers... which eminently qualifies it to observe US election fairness.
But then Ben Emmerson, a notorious defender of terrorists and the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights decided to go ahead and threaten Americans with legal action if they vote for Romney.
"The re-introduction of torture under a Romney administration would significantly increase the threat levels to (Americans) at home and abroad," Emmerson said. "Such a policy, if adopted, would expose the American people to risks the Obama administration is not currently exposing them to."
Who is Ben Emmerson? He was the defense attorney for Ramush Haradinaj, the KLA terrorist whose men were responsible for the torture, rape and murder of Serbs and Gypsies as part of an ethnic cleansing campaign.
Emmerson helped win Ramush Haradinaj's acquittal, despite the testimony of numerous eyewitnesses. Now Emmerson, the man who helped cover up Ramush Haradinaj's atrocities is using his UN authority to threaten Americans with retribution if they vote for a candidate that he doesn't approve of.
Ben Emmerson would like to claim that waterboarding is a horrifying torture. Let's look at the tortures that his client, Ramush Haradinaj, was responsible for.
KLA soldiers forced Witness 38 and her relatives to join a convoy of people. At some point, they were taken from the convoy and brought to a mill in Junik. She and her father were forced to undress. She further testified that she was kept naked for a considerable amount of time and that she was forced to re-join the convoy while still naked. Witness 38 also testified that the soldier forced her to eat a bank book, tore off half of her father’s moustache, and tied both their hands with barbed wire.
Witness 38 testified that a vehicle with at least two men arrived at the location where she was held and that she saw the men when she was sitting on the ground some 20-30 metres away. There were, according to Witness 38, bushes between herself and the men. Witness 38 heard the word “commander”, but was not sure to whom it was addressed. Three to four months later, the witness recognized one of the men as Ramush Haradinaj when she saw him on television.
There is the moral authority of the man who would threaten Americans and try to manipulate the outcome of a presidential election.
