NGOs like Amnesty, HRW and others have long played a role in the West’s disinformation campaigns
Amnesty International has a long track record of selling lies to the public to help justify US military aggression [Iraq and Libya are examples, as explained in video] both direct and by proxy all under the guise of “human rights” advocacy . Often when it is too late to reverse the damage done, Amnesty puts distance between itself and its lies to prepare for the next propaganda campaign. How has this played out in Ukraine now that the US proxy war there is in full swing?

I've lived in Australia since 1959 together with my husband Peter. We have four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. I started blogging because I wanted to publish some of my childhood memories. I am blogging now also some of my other memories. I like to publish some photos too as well as a little bit of a diary from the present time. Occasionally I publish a story with a bit of fiction in it. Peter, my husband, is publishing some of his stories under berlioz1935.wordpress.com

Having volunteered with Amnesty International in the (quite) distant past, I will defend their overall objectives while agreeing that no organization or person is always right. There have been numerous instances when Amnesty has been critical of U.S. policy. All of us filter actions or performance through the selective lens of our personal perceptions and biases. The U.S., for example, is currently deeply divided with those on both sides unwilling to accept the perspective of the other. Under such circumstances, fairness becomes difficult and we are prone to general criticism rather than acknowledging the validity of opposing points of view. Very little of consequence occurs that can be judged in basic black and white. When young, I was much more inclined to know the answer to any of the World’s problems — now I see the many shades of grey and no longer am as sure.
Thank you very much for your comment, Lew. Of course, there are many shades of grey. and nobody is quite sure about everything. 🙂
