Syria in charge of U.N. nuclear watchdog

People say the United Nations is a joke. But what a punchline:

Two weeks after Israel’s alleged bombing raid in Syria which some foreign reports said targeted North Korean nuclear material, the UN’s nuclear watchdog elected Syria as deputy chairman of its General Conference on Monday.

The 51st session of the General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) opened in Vienna on Monday and will run through Friday.

The Syrian news agency SANA proudly reported the election on Tuesday, adding that Syria was also successful in including “the Israeli nuclear arsenal as an item on the agenda of the conference.”

That’s right. The country that’s suspected of buying nuclear material from North Korea is now ostensibly policing non-proliferation. Yeah, right. Seraphic Secret likens the appointment to:

1. Putting a pedophile in charge of a kindergarten.

2.  Appointing Goering to head up the Nuremberg Trials.

3. Having Lindsay Lohan as your drug counselor.
