While the US has issues with human rights as described in the OP, these are not necessarily policy. However, Guantanamo Bay and capital punishment
are clearly problems that the US must address. Even with these issues, the US does not compare in any way to the vast majority of nations outside of
Europe and other developed and liberal nations
One lazy look at the human rights of places like China, Uzbekistan, Somalia, Nigeria and loads of other places should help with context.
To me it is an affront that some nations with appalling human rights records have the audacity to be allowed to sit on the United Nations Human
Rights Council, because there's an inclination to make the best look as bad as them as a way to make them look less bad (if you follow)!
