UN Human Rights Commission

Host Madeleine Brand talks with the president of the United Nations Association of the USA, William Luers, about the United States' loss of its seat on the U.N.'s Commission for Human Rights. The U.N. Economic and Social Council voted yesterday not to re-elect the U.S. to the commission. This is the first time since the commission's creation in 1947 that the U.S. has not held a position on it.
