Why Did World Leaders Nominate This ‘Tyrant’ as a ‘Goodwill Ambassador’?

What happened?

After protest, the World Health Organization has rescinded its “goodwill ambassador” title from Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe.

Glenn’s take?

“Thankfully, someone at the World Health Organization returned to sanity,” Glenn said of the decision to rescind the appointment. “They remembered, ‘Oh, yeah, that’s right, he’s a despot, a tyrant, a killer.

“To think that somebody who helped spread a raging cholera epidemic in his own country would fight diseases is insane.”
