State Dept. Stands Up For Rich British Comedian's Human Rights
After six years of kissing the ass of Kazakhstan's autocrat president, the Bush Administration has finally decided to notice the dreadful lack of human rights in the "former" Soviet Central Asian country that just happens to sit atop some of the biggest oil and gas reserves in the world ... and right between Russia and China. According to a new report from Condi's State Department, the mean old guys in Kazakhstan took Borat's website away! Total lack of precious freedoms!
Also, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev had opposition leader Altynbek Sarsenbaiuly (and Sarsenbaiuly's bodyguard and driver) murdered last year.
Also, the Kazakh government is guilty of "military hazing, torture by police, unhealthy prison conditions, arbitrary arrests, restrictions on freedom of assembly, domestic violence against women, people trafficking and severe limits on citizens' rights to change their government."
