slippery slope

May 27th, 2004

“[the abuses at Abu Ghraib are] the logical consequence of the pursuit of the war on terror by the United States since 9/11. It is the natural outcome of the policy, openly followed by the US administration, to pick and choose which bits of international law it will apply and when”.

— Irene Khan, secretary general of Amnesty International at a press confrence [ www.guardian.co.uk ] announcing the release of the Amnesty International Report 2004 [ www.amnesty.org ].
