Human Rights and the US of A

From CNN (for full article search CNN)…

“When most governments breach international human rights and humanitarian law, they commit a violation,” New York-based Human Rights Watch said in its annual report of human rights developments in 60 countries.
“When a government as dominant and influential as the United States openly defies that law and seeks to justify its defiance, it also undermines the law itself and invites others to do the same.”
The group urged the administration of President George W. Bush to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate any U.S. officials who participated in, ordered or had command responsibility for torture or mistreatment. It also dismissed the Bush administration’s claim that Abu Ghraib prisoner treatment was a problem limited to a few soldiers acting on their own.

  1. “US official who participated in, ordered or had command responsibility for the torture or mistreatment”

    or how about:

    PEOPLE WHO WROTE MEMOS JUSTIFYING TOURTURE AS LONG AS IT DOESN’T RESULT IN DEATH!!!!!!

    How about we investigate the nut jobs who condone torture. Maybe Gonzales should move to Saudi Arabia with Bandar Bush and chop people’s heads off with Machetes.

    For Gods sake, is everyone blind? Lets get the guy with the foreign Nanny back!
