UN Human Rights Chief Navi Pillay appears to have made a major gaffe today, announcing in comments at a news conference that the secret evidence compiled by UN investigators points to “war crimes” responsibility at the highest levels of Syria’s government, including President Bashar Assad.
That’s not really a surprise, as most experts agree that there are major human rights violations being committed on both sides, but pointing at Assad as the head of state was not supposed to happen, because the list of suspects is supposed to be a closely guarded secret.
Pillay was quick to backtrack, insisting that she hadn’t specifically said that Assad was a suspect, and conceded that she can neither confirm nor deny anyone on the list of suspects.
That’s because that list was given to her recently by the UN investigators specifically for “safe storage,” with an eye toward eventually charging the various war criminals on all sides of the conflict if and when the war even ends. Needless to say, charging the losing side will be much easier than charging the victors.

What has UN Pillay done about the Goldstone report, which outlines Israeli war crimes when Olmert feigned acceptance of PM Edogan negotiated ceasefire and waged Operation Cast Lead. Bbombing the overcrowded Gaza strip with wp and du which resulted in the death and injury of 4000 unarmed Palestinians.
What has she done about Israeli Pirates who boarded independent sovereign vessels in International waters and summarily executed its passengers, seized their vessel and stole their $$$ and where was Pilly when NATO Rasmussen used the Libyan No Fly Zone to wage a blitzkrieg bombing raid on the unarmed Libyan civilians.
Surely hope her list of Human Rights violators also include the CIA trained al Qaeda, Takfiris, Saudi and Israel supported Criminals and Cannibals, behind the mass murder of Syrian civilians.
I have “evidence” Ms. Pillay fornicates with goats…this will held “secret” until further notice…
Btw…did Ms. Pillay mention the chemical weapons attacks by the US and Israel backed terrorists?
Not a word about Bush/Obama war crimes. Go figure
Assad bad! More blah blah blah. Seems there's no mention of the Bushco criminals. Nor Bliar or Howard nor Israel or Cameron. Propaganda tedium ad infinitum…
The Syrian war was started and it was for the Saudis to expend their religious territory into Syria and beyond, so, the root of the problem is not the Syrian government nor the Syrian people but the act of war crimes is on the shoulders of those who supported and supporting the Syrian war to continue.
It was not the Syrian government who started the war, the Syrian government have done what a people chosen government would do, to ask for peace and dialogue from day one and long before the Saudis barbarians started invading the Syrians homes killing innocent man-women and children, yet the unite of UN rights condemning the Syrian government for war crimes, while the real war criminals from and within the USG since Vietnam war to Balkan to Iraq war are free and getting paid by the Americans working people, while the Israeli war criminals are given medals for their brutal regime, while the king of Sweden apprise the tyrants in Persian gulf making sure that Sweden will continue their support for dictatorial regimes as Saudis and others. If Pilly wants to make statement about war crime he needs to point his or her middle finger at Al-Queada and their supporters, these mercenaries whom are paid by these regimes, those who supports them and train them, those who gives them weapons, like Turkish government, the Saudis the UAE and others.
You knew this was coming. Nothing they have tried has worked. Their Free Syrian Army(sic) has collapsed and they could not make the chemical weapons charge stick. Trumped up w ar crimes charges are the empire's last hope. The so called human rights monitors and the ICC are nothing but puppets for the US and it's allies.
