On North Korea Launches, US Power Stakeout, Questions Pre-Selected

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, September 6  -- The UN Security Coouncil was in South Sudan, and US President Obama and others in China for the G20 when North Korea conducted its most recent launch. On US Labor Day, with the Council in Ethiopia, a UN Security Council meeting was announced for September 6 at 11:30 am.

After being accompanied as now required by one of Ban Ki-moon's minders, click here, Inner City Press arrived at the UN Security Council stakeout at 11 am. The only Ambassador to make remarks, off UNTV, before the meeting was France's Francois Delattre, who said “ballistic launches by NorthKorea... are a grave challenge to the non-proliferation regime.” Vine here.

   After the consultations - and a UN noon briefing in which Ban Ki-moon's spokesman Stephane Dujarric once again refused to provide information about Ban's promotion of his own son in law to the top UN job in Kenya and even the costs of Ban's current two week junket - US Ambassador Samantha Power and her Japanese and South Korea counterpart spoke on UNTV.

   The two questions, pointed to by Power's spokesman, were pre-selected; these was no question from South Korean media. One question is whether any Press Statement that comes out will refer to Japan's Exclusive Economic Zone. Watch this site.

As to US Power, one would have liked to here, after the pre-selected trip to South Sudan, if in fact the US is selling out the Nuer, or only Riek Machar.
