Legal Travesty in Russia
The U.S. Administration may want to rethink whether it really wants to "reset" relations with Russia. After eight years of prison for Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a corrupted judicial system has convicted Mr Khodorkvsky of new offenses and is perhaps prepared to imprison Mr Khodorkovsky for some additional years. See Andrei Ostalski The verdict that may shake Russia BBC News (Dec. 27, 2010). The Obama Administration professed to want to bring "change" to America. But perhaps the change it desired does not include a serious concern about human rights violations in other countries.
