Democracy and transparency as human rights per Obama

Well, this speaks for itself:

"That does not lessen my commitment, however, to governments that
reflect the will of the people. Each nation gives life to this
principle in its own way, grounded in the traditions of its own people.
America does not presume to know what is best for everyone, just as we
would not presume to pick the outcome of a peaceful election. But I do
have an unyielding belief that all people yearn for certain things: the
ability to speak your mind and have a say in how you are governed;
confidence in the rule of law and the equal administration of justice;
government that is transparent and doesn't steal from the people; the
freedom to live as you choose. These are not just American ideas; they
are human rights. And that is why we will support them everywhere," the
president continued.

(thanks, folks at Sunlight Foundation.)
