Guess who owns the mouth...

Hey...who do you think this is about?

In response to a question from a Nigerian journalist as to why his opposition to the ICC’s decision was at odds with the majority of suffering Darfur civilians who supported the decision, Brockmann blew off the whole premise of the question by replying that his views were in concert with the leaders of the Arab League and African Union. Then he launched into a nasty personal attack on President George W. Bush for having been the first world leader to charge the Sudanese leadership with committing genocide in Darfur.

"That should tell you quite a bit already. Can you imagine Al Capone calling the police to say that somebody stole milk from the market? It's Al Capone standing for uprightness," said Brockmann in comparing the former president of the United States with the Chicago mobster.

Not surprisingly, the only countries that Brockmann denounced during his press conference were the United States and Israel.
It's the president of the General Assembly of the United Nations, Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann.
