jta: Clinton set to name Posner to top rights job

Hillary Clinton is set to nominate a Jewish activist who has led efforts to counter anti-Semitism as her human rights czar.

The secretary of state soon will name Michael Posner, a founder of Human Rights First, as assistant secretary for democracy, human rights and labor, Bloomberg News reported Wednesday. Posner, a lawyer, has broad legal experience in the field of human rights, helping to draft anti-torture legislation in the United States and to set up human rights tribunals in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia.
