US ‘erodes’ global human rights

Violations of human rights by the US are undermining international law and eroding its role on the world stage, a leading campaign group says.

Human Rights Watch says the US can no longer claim to defend human rights abroad if it practises abuses itself.

The US has become the rogue nation the Bushies claim is threatening us so much that they forced, forced they tell us, to curtail all those pesky civil rights and shred that annoying Constitution.
