  •  That's an out-of-date statement by Amnesty (0+ / 0-)

    Probably a pre-Bush statement.  The US has multiple political prisoners now -- Don Siegelman comes to mind.

    Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.

    •  you're right it's an decades old statement (0+ / 0-)

      Also AI has certain criteria which lets the USA get by since they charge most political prisoners with crimes which they claim are not political.

      America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity
