Hassan II: not really embarassed about being a bad guy

When I was reading Western Sahara Online for this post, I noticed this quote from the man most responsible for the current occupation and human rights abuses in Western Sahara, King Hassan II:
"I have always said that, in this country, the rights of man stopped at the question of the Sahara. Anyone who said that the Sahara was not Moroccan could not benefit from the rights of man."
He really didn't make any bones up for the torture, huh? Anyway, I thought maybe this was a bad translation or some Sahrawi propaganda, but it's also quoted here, in the book Morocco Since 1830: A History.

Is it any wonder a man who thought there was nothing shameful in that statement produced a son who solves his problems like this?
