No American 'Gulag'

A former prisoner of conscience in a real gulag writes about Amnesty's use of that word: Pavel Litvinov - No American 'Gulag'.

Blog links:

New Optimates: "Its a shame really. There are so many legitimate victims of political repression who desperately need an advocate. Instead, Amnesty chose to walk away from them to enjoy the partisan pleasure of fishing for the ever-elusive red herring."

lgf: "Amnesty International is now actively seeking a Soviet Gulag survivor who will denounce the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, and back up their assertion that Gitmo is “the Gulag of our time.” No luck so far."
