Glenn Greenwald speaks out against Amnesty’s refusal to name Bradley Manning a Prisoner of Conscience


Glenn replied to this question I put to him in a UK Guardian hosted Q&A:

What do you think of Amnesty International's refusal to name Bradley Manning a Prisoner of Conscience?

GLENN'S REPLY:

It's inexcusable, and indicative of the way that even human rights groups that do good work have become increasingly frightened of/accommodationist to the US government. A former Clinton aide was selected to head Amnesty International USA:

Even when they're basically good people, this kind of incestuous relationship to the US government is exactly what human rights groups – of all places – should avoid.
