Western human rights organizations: Amnesty International and the US. State Department...


Photo: Same lies, different podium. Suzanne Nossel previously of the US State Department, is now executive director of Amnesty International USA.

Suzanne Nossel, Executive Director of Amnesty International USA, was drawn directly from the US State Department - again, utterly contradicting Amnesty's claims of being "independent" of governments and corporate interests. Nossel continued promoting US foreign policy, but simply behind a podium with a new logo, Amnesty International's logo, attached to it. Amnesty International's website specifically mentions Nossel's role behind US State Department-backed UN resolutions regarding Iran, Syria, Libya, and Cote d'Ivoire.
