Amnesty International Said What!
Did Amnesty International Call For Kidnapping Of American Leaders?
In the over-the-top category Captain Ed tells us that John Leo reported (in his column Stories Not Told) Amnesty International had referred to Guantanamo Bay as the “gulag of our time” (statement issued by AI’s Secretary-General Irene Khan). The “gulag” analogy has deservedly received a thorough thrashing from bloggers and even some in the media.
At the end of his column Leo also alleged that AI issued a press release with their annual report (that most of the media apparently ignored). That release alleges Amnesty International called for nations to kidnap George Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, and other American officials, and haul them off to the ICC for prosecution on charges of crimes against humanity.
Amazingly, the source of that press release is yet to be found. Uh hum.
