Recently, in an on-line forum discussion on johnquiggin.com, claims by Amnesty International that the Syrian Government of President Bashar al-Assad had engaged in human rights abuses were #comment-246556">cited.
In fact, in 1990 Amnesty International peddled the infamous 'incubator babies' lie (see Appendix below for embedded 2:47min broadcast) and has repeatedly been complicit in violations of human rights far greater than those claimed violations of human rights to which it had objected.
The death toll in Iraq since the invasion of 1991 that was facilitated by the 'incubator babies' has been estimated be as high as 3.3 million including 750,000 children. This seems consistent with another estimate of the death toll since the 2003 invasion of 1,455,590. Other estimates give death tolls from these wars of at least several hundreds of thousands.
So, in the case of Iraq, Amnesty International's actions have resulted in a count of deaths of several orders of magnitude greater than those it had alleged to have occurred and had objected to.
Since the first Iraq War, Amnesty International has similarly provided a propaganda cover for other acts aggression by the the United States and its allies. These include the invasion of Libya in 2011, the terrorist war against Syria from March 2011, in which as many as 195,00 may have died, and the coup in Ukraine and the regime's subsequent war against the ethnic Russians of East Ukraine. In the case of Ukraine, whilst Amnesty has acknowledged that the Ukraine regime has violated human rights, it has also fabricated claims of human rights abuses by the East Ukraine self-defence forces against the very people upon whom they rely for support.
