On Kenya & ICC, Russia & China Take African Position, Power Called "UNclear"

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, October 31 -- After Ethiopia's minister made the African Union's opening statement to the UN Security Council for a 12 month deferral of the International Criminal Court's Kenya cases, sources tell Inner City Press, China spoke: in favor of the African position.

Russia also took this position, the sources say, calling US Ambassador Samantha Power's presentation "unclear" -- perhaps intentionally so. The people of Kenya deserve justice: yes. The AU points also to victims of the mall attack, and of possible increased instability in the region.

We would prefer to present Ambassador Power's and the US' position as stated by it, but a request for such has yet to be fulfilled, perhaps for understandable reasons.

France, whose Gerard Araud went into the meeting, was quoted by sources on accountability (others ask, what about its role in the Great Lakes?)

To update our previous characterization of Western media absent from the stakeout, two of the scribes hand-picked by France to accompany and documented its trip, dubbed France's Genocide Joyride, through the DR Congo and Rwanda, later showed up. Wednesday night complained were received how Reuters covered the allegations of child soldiers and the M23, but not the FDLR, saying there was no time. And so it goes at the UN.
