Unsubscribe To Human Rights Abuse.

I am a supporter of Amnesty International and have just received information of a new campaign by them about the interrogation techniques the CIA are still employing in the "War On Terror". The video below is rather disturbing but I urge you to watch it and sign up to "unsubscribe" and help with this campaign.

The question is where do you draw the line?

I have a friend currently serving overseas who was pulled out of a death trap just in time before an ambush ecause of information that may have been from such a source.

Would it be right to not get the information under any means from a subject when 20 english soldiers would have found themselves under fire from all sides with no means of escape?

There is a lot of injustice in this world, most of it undeserved ut military interrogation is targetted and does yield results that have saved hundreds of lives.

While I dont agree with the wars we ahve instigated overseas I want both my friends and the soldiers fighting over there to be protected by any means.

While my mate survived 3 of his companions were killed and the other was dumped dead and with horrific injuries from torture in the middle of an Iraqui city.

While there are many cases where I spport Amnesty International, such as the imprisonment of people for mearly writing their views, the fact of the matter is that the people being held and questioned have been involved in planning the deaths of those close to the hearts of people all around you.

It is easy to take the moral high ground when you are not involved.
