UN elects Iran vice-chair

Would you believe - to the Disarmament Commission? True Brit Hume reports:
Iran, which is threatening the United States if it tries to block Iran's nuclear ambitions, has now been elected to — of all things — the leadership of United Nations' Disarmament Commission, which oversees international disarmament and security. At its annual meeting in New York, the Commission on Disarmament — part of the U.N.'s General Assembly — voted to make Iran a vice-chair of the commission, along with Uruguay and Chile. This comes as Iranian officials boast that they have successfully enriched uranium, and insist the U.S. won't try to stop them since "the consequences would be too dangerous."
Your saw it - Iran was elected to be vice-chair of the Disarmament Commission. And this was on the same day that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad promised his people "good news" about the country's nuclear program. Here is the same story at CNS News. Sorry, but the UN's web site doesn't admit the irresponsible thing they did. No surprise there. And... On Eye on the UN's home page see the section "UN-IRAN WATCH." It has the dirty story that it took the high-minded UN 980 days to recognize that Iran had violated its obligations under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. And it has links to the whole time line of the sordid misdeed.
