      Thumbs Up to William Safire

      THUMBS UP to syndicated columnist William Safire for his April 23, 2001 column in the New York Times exposing the "diplomatic hypocrisy" of the U.N. Commission on Human Rights. He notes that the group of 52 nations decided to give a pass to China, which is "torturing and killing members of the Falun Gong, raping Tibet's culture and imprisoning foreign nationals."
