Amnesty International: Don't cooperate with U.S.

Remember when Amnesty International was mostly concerned about OTHER countries?

MIAMI (Reuters) - Amnesty International urged the United States on Thursday to abandon plans to try Guantanamo prisoners before military tribunals and asked other nations not to contribute any evidence for use at the trials.

"These trials threaten to cut corners in pursuit of a few convictions and add to the injustice that the Guantanamo detention facility has come to symbolize," said Susan Lee, Amnesty's Americas Program Director.

A United States detention facility has come to symbolize injustice - internationally.

How will we explain this period of American History to our grandchildren?
