Obama Calls for More Mercy

Barack Obama, who has yet to grant a single pardon or commutation of sentence is now calling for the "immediate" release of Aung San Suu Kyi, saying her 18 month sentence of "house arrest" violates "universal principles of human rights." Obama has also "expressed concerns" in relation to the 7 year prison sentence of American John Yettaw, who stayed in Aung San Suu Kyi's home for two nights. See story here.
