Amnesty International Grants Stay Of Execution To Victims Of Terrorism


The laudable but not overwhelmingly effectual organization, Amnesty International, released an unusual report that had two well-balanced goals.

The first was, as one would expect, to point out abuses that suspected terrorists can be exposed to, for instance, summary shipment to Gitmo, with a reward paid for their apprehension, and to advocate that the rights of the suspects that are being wronged be transformed into wrongs that are being righted.

But the second goal demonstrated an unusual sensitivity for those who have been tortured and executed. The always fair-minded organization brought its name to life by declaring that the victims had amnesty and therefore were not really dead.

Unfortunately, implementation of both advocacies proved beyond the power of Amnesty International.

At least, for the foreseeable future, terrorists will continue to be shipped off to incarceration in balmy Cuba, with grateful rewards being forked over for their apprehension, and the dead did will continue not to realize that they have been granted amnesty.
