What value should be placed on U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s assurances that the Department of State wants to help parents recover their kidnapped children in Japan?
Judge this question for yourself. This is a link to recent public statements made by the U.S. Secretary of State, during a Washington “open house” event organized by the dubious Department of State “Office of Children’s Issues.” Does this say “we are acting assertively to protect and restore human rights of, and bring about justice for our children and parents”? Or does it say, “I’m sorry that we aren’t willing to act assertively to protect the human rights of children or parents, but a few sentimental words of solace can’t hurt, can they?”
Below is a letter from Kizuna Child-Parent Reunion, an international group of parents of children kidnapped to and within Japan, asking the U.S. Secretary to act on her previous assurances this week.
