ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on various activities with regard to human rights. While reading through two recent, voluminous reports by Amnesty International USA and Human Rights Watch on U.S. torture and impunity, the author saw one phrase pop up in both: "prima facie evidence." That's a legal term for evidence that is strong enough to establish a case. Both groups said there was such evidence against the U.S. Minister for Defense Donald Rumsfeld for war crimes. And Amnesty International USA said there was such evidence against the U.S. President George W. Bush, too. The author was further amazed that Amnesty International USA issued a call to foreign governments to apprehend Bush and Rumsfeld if there is no accountability here.
