Human Rights & the War on Terrorism by Kenneth Roth

Today we presented a speech by by Kenneth Roth, the Executive Director of Human Rights Watch. This speech was recorded in February 2004, and was produced by Alternative Radio. The speech can be obtained from this page.

Roth is extremely articulate, and the speech contains a wealth of information that is almost never discussed in the mainstream media. Here are some highlights:

His overall thesis is that the "war on terrorism" is severly undermined by these kinds of human rights abuses by the US.

This Article by Roth in Foreign Affairs makes some of the same points.
