'Human Rights Watch' condemns Bin Laden killing

You will recall that 'Human Rights Watch' was conflicted on Monday about how to respond to the killing of Osama Bin Laden. Now, they've had a chance to think about it. And they've decided to condemn Bin Laden's killing. Really.
On May 3 HRW executive director Ken Roth tweeted: Ban Ki-moon wrong on #Osama bin Laden: It’s not “justice” for him to be killed even if justified; no trial, conviction http://reut.rs/kKQfuu

In contrast to elected officials, such as President Obama, who must choose between real options, Roth presents a fictitious alternative in which arch-terrorists in countries like Pakistan can be arrested, tried, and punished by functioning international judicial systems.
Of course.

They have made similar comments to aljazeera: Watch the interview in which the interviewer even expresses shock at the posture HRW takes -


Human Rights Watch is outside of mainstream thought at this point.

I'd like to ask the idiot Ken Roth about the 3000 dead Americans who were never given a trial by their executioners.

What about their human rights?

That's why Human Rights Watch has lost credibility.

What about that guy who founded HRW and has been speaking against them lately? Robert Bernstein. Maybe he will counter them.
