A regular poster on the Media Lens message board caught this
Suzanne Nossel is – as "Peter" describes – an "ex-State Department/Obama administration official currently masquerading as a neutral human rights advocate as head of Amnesty International U.S.A.." Years before being selected to run Amnesty USA, Nossel openly supported the 2003 US invasion of Iraq – though she advised the Bush administration to "postpone" the invasion for a few months until a UN resolution could be obtained.
As shown below, even as head of Amnesty USA, Nossel openly bolsters yet another a fraud based rush to war.
What follows is how "Peter", the Media Lens regular, explained it:
"Iranian dissident Shirin Ebadi is reported as saying that Western sanctions on Iran are only hurting the people, and need to be lifted 'for a sustainable life', Nossel tweeted:
But Ebadi disputes nothing of the sort. Here's what the article actually says:
As you can see, she is clearly reported as talking about the 'nuclear energy' program not being popular among Iranians, because of the potential 'environmental risks' associated with it, rather than any 'weapons program'.
Indeed, nowhere in the article is a nuclear 'weapons program' even mentioned, except when it's reported that Ayatollah Khameini 'insists that Iran will never use its uranium stockpile to develop nuclear weapons'.
And how convenient that Nossel's misrepresentation of Ebadi feeds into the hawkish but almost certainly false narrative of a menacing Iran currently being in the process of developing a nuclear weapon, and which must be stopped.
Or as Nossel herself put it in 2006:
