Sen. Kit Bond becomes the first senator to speak out on Mary Robinson. In response to our inquiry, Bond declares in unequivocal terms his objection to the president’s decision to honor Mary Robinson:
The United States boycotted the UN’s Durban Conference on Racism for its hostility to Israel; to award now our nation’s highest civilian honor to someone best known for presiding over the conference sends the wrong signal to one of our most steadfast friends and allies.
Which other elected officials, which self-proclaimed defenders of Israel, will speak out? Silence is agreement with the White House’s atrocious judgment. Let us see who else will object.
