Read what the Secretary General of Amnesty International, Irene Kahn, had to say about what the attacks of 9/11 exposed. Hint: it's not the level to which terrorists will go to slaughter innocent people.
(Breitbart.Com)The world will look to President-elect Barack Obama to restore the United States' human rights reputation after it was tarnished by the war on terror, the head of Amnesty International told AFP.
In an interview to mark Wednesday's 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Irene Khan said in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks, Western countries resorted to the tactics they once condemned.
"What the 9/11 attacks did was expose the hypocrisy of Western democracies that until then had been champions of human rights abroad," Khan said.
"Suddenly they were caught with problems in their own territory. And then facing that problem, they chose to take the easy path out of it, eroding human rights rather than standing up for them.
Sure bitch... that's what September 11th exposed to the world.
