More Human Rights Watch on Bin Laden

When the news broke that U.S. forces had killed Bin Laden, HRW went with its natural instincts to use the occasion to urge the U.S. to “no longer resort to torture, ill-treatment, and other violations of basic rights in their understandable quest to prevent further strikes.”

That apparently didn’t sit well even with HRW’s base, so they scrubbed that press release from their website and replaced it with one in which Ken Roth focuses on Bin Laden’s death as “a reminder of the thousands of innocents who suffer when terrorist groups seek political change through brutal means.” Of course, as noted in my previous post, Roth couldn’t stay on message, and by the next day he was griping that Bin Laden’s death was “not justice.”
