Blah, blah, blah


Human Rights Watch?

Some group called the Helsinki foundation for Human Rights is all up in arms because the CIA may have taken possible terror suspects from Afghanistan and put them into secret prisons in Poland. Fair enough.

Take a look at their website. They are into all kinds of issues that they believe will improve the human condition, especially for those who may have had or are having their rights as humans trampled. Once again, fair enough.

But, how about the victims of 9-11? I looked all over the site. Nothing. Major concern for the possible terrorists but no mention of any Americans who were murdered that morning.

I have a hard time caring about what this group has to say. Sounds like some liberal think tank to me.

Here is their website:

Whose human rights are they watching?

I believe you may be right. Same blood line as Nobel Peace prize people.

Another socialist country being heard from.

Does anybody really give a crap about the human rights of terrorist and violent criminals?  Yes, we shouldn't torture them but we also shouldn't treat them much better than wild animals either.

Weren't the victims of 9/11 victims of a reprehensible, violent crime brought on by terrorists?  They (the victims) are gone - and no one is torturing them in some secret prison right now (the on-going and forever pain of their loved ones not withstanding).   But how and why would you compare that horrible act against our country and its innocent people to an organization that is working without prejudice on behalf of children, women, minorities and those who presently have no voice? 

Will one of you please explain to me how supporting human rights could have possibly become a bad thing? 

And yes, Rob, I give a crap about the human rights of everyone, even those who have committed violent acts.   One violent act does not excuse another.

Rob did not state that we should use violence.

Actions speak louder than words. The actions of this group are in favor of terrorists. It is like some group taking up for murderers or child molesters and not their victims. If a terrorist wants human rights they should not be in favor of hurting others.
