Re: 'Amnesty International bites the hand that feeds it.' Catherine Ford,
Calgary Herald, Oct. 6.

Ford's column is one long immature squawk from beginning to

Amnesty International investigates human rights abuses world-wide. If
human rights abuses exist in the United States, is it not duty-bound
to report them? If it didn't, how much credibility would it command?

It has put out its report.  The only thing that should concern U.S.
citizens is the truth of the report. Establish the truth of the
allegations concerning abuses of human rights, then take action to
have these abuses ended.

We have no right to point the finger at others when our own house
needs to be put in order.
