Particularly dist urbing has been watching the world’s most prominent human rights organizations sell themselves out to money and power.� Human Rights Watch long ago largely adopted the USA's interventionist paradigm (i.e., if the USA intervenes internationally, it must be for a good cause).� That left Amnesty International as the premier mainstream human rights organization.� I contributed to them for years.� The tribunal at The Hague was set up for prosecuting war crimes.� The USA funded it and controlled it nearly completely.� It was a kangaroo court, particularly used for political ends as the USA attacked Yugoslavia.� Most aspects of impartial courts were dispensed with at that tribunal, with breathtaking hypocrisy.
