Rushdie on Amnesty International

Salman Rushdie:

Amnesty International has done its reputation incalculable damage by allying itself with Moazzam Begg and his group Cageprisoners, and holding them up as human rights advocates. It looks very much as if Amnesty’s leadership is suffering from a kind of moral bankruptcy, and has lost the ability to distinguish right from wrong.

(H/T Noah Pollak via Facebook)

Well, at least Amnesty doesn’t send out press releases condemning investigative reports they haven’t seen or anything. Oh, wait; right….

UPDATE: Well, at least Amnesty doesn’t advocate extremely tendentious interpretations of international law that would make it impossible for a Western power to fight against irregular terrorist forces mingled with a civilian population.
