Can we find a spine somewhere? The U.S. State Department needs one urgently.

The headline is borrowed from a Facebook post by Fred Maroon, responding to a State Department "review" of yesterday's speech in the UN by Bibi. In that review, according to Toi, "State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki on Monday distanced Washington from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s characterization of a UN body as a terror-supporting organization Monday." She said, among other things:

Although Psaki noted that the US had also voiced criticism of the United Nations Human Rights Council for its frequent criticism of Israel, she also said that the US “would not agree” with Netanyahu’s characterization of the human rights body as “the terrorists’ rights council,” after he also labeled it “an oxymoron.”
I don't really have anything to add to what Fred had to say. The market on spines isn't burgeoning lately, unfortunately, Fred is completely right.

Too bad.
