  • Everyone missed the big story, which is that this annual Cuba charade is likely coming to an end. The rights envoy (Chanet) recommended as much. In addition the Council seems poised to reject the current system that allows powerful countries to cherry-pick small countries for review, while remaining immune from any review of themselves. 25 member countries spoke in favor of Cuba and the type of reforms which would make all countries subject to human rights review. Cuba has said it would cooperate with such a regime.
