Incredible: US defends 'human rights council' record

This is not a parody. After the United Nations 'human rights council' decided to send a 'fact-finding mission' to 'investigate' Israel's 'settlement policies,' the United States defended the council's record.
In a statement released by US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland, the US said that the UNHRC had "helped spur action on a series of important human rights situations around the world, in part due to vigorous US engagement." The statement praised UNHRC action in Syria, Sri Lanka, Iran, North Korea, Burma, Libya and Yemen.

Nuland added that the US condemns the UNHRC's biased approach on Israel, which she said "continues to unnecessarily politicize the Council's human rights agenda."
How could the 'human rights council' possibly do a better job? /sarc

Has any Republican candidate committed to withdrawing the US from the council if he is elected? That would be a great way to put distance between the Republicans and Obama.

What could go wrong?

There's a spelling mistake in the name of the State Department spokeswoman...
It should read Victoria NuTland
