Thanks to Zena for compiling this email list, including the "Troika", which would lead the 2010 UPR of the United States - Cameron, France, and Japan.
I believe that the choice of the Troika is a promising start for an honest and effectual 2010 UPR report.

RE: Request for an honest and effectual UPR report on the United States by the Human Rights Council of the United Nations
I, the undersigned, Joseph Zernik, a citizen of the United States, read with great hope the news regarding the first ever, 2010 Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Human Rights in the United States. On behalf of Human Rights Alert (NGO) I also filed a stakeholder submission, which was later incorporated into the staff report of the Human Rights Council with a reference to "corruption of the courts and the legal profession and discrimination by law enforcement in California".
We hope that the final 2010 UPR report would likewise reflect the urgent need for the United States government to address the corruption of its justice system. We, who live in the United States, suffered substantial deterioration in the safeguard of our Human, Civil, and Constitutional Rights, particularly in the past decade.
The UPR process of the United Nations is a unique opportunity for the truth in this matter to be finally heard � loud and clear. An honest and effectual 2010 UPR report on the United States is likely become a historic landmark for Human Rights in the United States.
