UN Shows US Weapons Technology Blueprints to N Korea Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, May 6, 2014, 08:52 PM

A few years ago, President Barack Obama signed up the United States to become a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHCR). According to UNHCR mandates, all American inventors seeking patents must apply through the Geneva-based World Intellectual Property Organization WIPO) and that includes patents for new weapons technology. Francis Gurry has been appointed chairman of WIPO.

According to Fox News, "These have included Gurry’s decision to transfer sensitive computer technology to North Korea and Iran in 2012 without notifying the U.N., which maintains sanctions against the regimes for their illegal nuclear weapons programs; other Gurry decisions last year to open new offices for his organization in Russia and China without member-states’ approval; and charges from a top WIPO official that Gurry ordered break-ins of the offices of his own staffers in 2008 to seek DNA evidence that they wrote anonymous letters against him. Gurry has denied the charges as “without foundation.”

North Korea has official membership status of the UNHCR and WIPO and can request U.S.-weapons blueprints for review before signing their approval for patents.

As reported by Fox News, "Despite those controversies, Gurry has been re-nominated for a second term as WIPO’s director general, a decision that must be ratified at a two-day meeting of the organization’s 187-member General Assembly that starts on Thursday. (Both Iran and North Korea, as well as the U.S., Russia and China, are members of the WIPO Coordinating Committee that passed on Gurry’s re-nomination.)"

Yet another shining example of incompetence in action at the White House, or shall we say, "Organizing for Incompetence."
