Amnesty International: Smoke & Mirrors From The Left

Well, the latest AI report is out and as usual, it spares no ink on America. In terms of 'human rights', one would think the lives of millions of newly liberated Iraqis and Afghanis would matter more to Amnesty International than the discomfort of a few terrorists held in conditions that are arguably better than those they ever experienced outside of captivity, right? Well, it's no secret that AI is far more concerned with 'human rights abuses' the War On Terror is allegedly causing than the reality of the selective genocide and suffering that came to an end with the destruction of the Hussein regime. It's also no secret that AI, run by leftist activists, collaborates with the most extreme left anti-war organizations out there. The result is an Amnesty International that values it's petty left wing moralism far more than 'human rights'. So, the US is global enemy number-one because of underwear hats at Abu Ghraib and Gitmo Koran-flushing allegations? Give me a break! What happened at Abu Ghraib pales in comparison with most college hazing and Gitmo is a day spa compared to what the detainees are used to living in. I won't bother ridiculing Amnesty International. They do a pretty good job making fools of themselves.
