"Voices of International Appeasement"

Amnesty International (AI) released its 2005 report which takes aim at the U.S.-led war on terror.

The “war on terror” appeared more effective in eroding international human rights principles than in countering international “terrorism.”

The US-led “war on terror” continued to undermine human rights in the name of security, despite growing international outrage at evidence of US war crimes, including torture, against detainees.

LGF's Charles Johnson refers to the organization as "the voice of the international appeasement left," and points out that:

...as usual, when one of these hard-left groups condemns the United States, it’s accompanied by a similar attack on Israel.

AI and another "voice of international appeasement" — Human Rights Watch — have consistently directed their righteous ire at Israel, sparing the real human rights abusers.
