dent suggested that a lot of US allies are having human rights issues.
in response to Republican Senator Marco Rubio’s reasoning about US resolution toward Saudis in connection with the journalist murder; Rubio said that the US cannot get involved in another country business even if the latter abused human rights.
dent then responded that Us should stop being sanctimonious toward the incident noting thatTurkey and its president was a former US ally is doing bad concerning its human rights record and those nations cannot adopt all the values provided by the US.
dent the admitted that the murder was horrific, however, nothing can be done to change anything about the incident.
