The Bush Administration Was For Amnesty International Before It Was Against It

By now you know that the Bush administration makes it a habit to bend facts to support their causes, and by now you also know that by ‘bend’ I actually mean they lie their asses off. So it should come as no surprise to you that before the Bush administration announced that they did not take Amnesty International seriously they used them extensively as a source of credibility when making their case for war in Iraq. Now when that same credible/not-credible source decries the practices of our forces at Guantanamo it is somehow less worthy of consideration?

“So the rule here appears to be: Amnesty is a legitimate source for human rights violations of other countries, but is an unreliable and irresponsible source for reporting on the U.S.”
