Administration 'flip-flops' on Amnesty

Taken from the Truthout blog. You have to admit - this is kind of funny. It is ok to quote an organization for your own purpose and then when the shoe is on the other foot, then it is time to discredit it as some type of liberal ran organization where the people lack morals...

In a post entitled "The Bush Administration Was For Amnesty International Before It Was Against It," Faiz at Think Progress addresses the Bush administration's response to Amnesty's 'gulag' report: "In the past, when it was convenient to the Administration, they did not hesitate to cite Amnesty to make its case. And nowhere did the Administration need more help than in selling the Iraq war. Secretary Rumsfeld repeatedly turned to Amnesty to highlight the repressive nature of Saddam's regime."
