AI: Once courageous, now irrelevant

At one time, Amnesty International was an organization with meaning, shining light on oppressive regimes around the world with their reports of the human rights violations of some of the world's worst governments. This AFP report via Expatica shows just how irrelevant they've become.

The article, and Amnesty's web site, show that AI's definition of human rights violations has been so broadened as to become meaningless. If you're trying to combat terrorism, you're an evil, oppressive regime. If your country has any poor or disadvantaged people, you're an evil, oppressive regime.

Like the ACLU, they've simply become leftist idealogues pushing an agenda.
