Amnesty: we're fake but accurate, we think

Some people are so ridiculous their statements speak for themselves. Case in point, Amnesty International now claims it doesn't know whether it's preposterous claim that the US is running a "gulag" at the Gitmo detention center is true. From the Reuters story:

Despite highly publicized charges of U.S. mistreatment of prisoners at Guantanamo, the head of the Amnesty International USA said on Sunday the group doesn't "know for sure" that the military is running a "gulag."

Executive Director William Schulz said Amnesty, often cited worldwide for documenting human rights abuses, also did not know whether Secretary Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld approved severe torture methods such as beatings and starvation.

USS Neverdock has more (click title link) of Schulz's unsubstantiated allegations.

Amnesty International is a joke.
