Anne Applebaum’s latest column deals with Amnesty International’s recent charges regarding Guantanamo Bay. The organization does seem to have thrown away any semblance of neutrality by comparing the detention center to the gulags. I can understand a group having political disagreements with the current administration, but they are damaging their credibility with their current behavior. And the charges practically guarantee that the administration is going to go on the defensive on the issue, while making it easier for them to dismiss the criticism as “political”.
