Human Rights Watch?

Alan Dershowitz wrote a post a while ago about the selectively watchful eyes of the Human Rights Watch people asking What are they Watching

He accuses the HRW that it frequently "...cooks the books about facts, cheats on interviews, and releases predetermined conclusions that are driven more by their ideology than by evidence."

Imagine if they can do this to Israel, with supposedly the omniscient presence of "Israel Lobby," who are we(Indians)? In India the HRW people don't even indulge in such primitive charade. They don't have to. They just keep quite in the aftermath of terrorist attacks and come out of woodwork once the dust settles.

P.S. Joshua Muravchik had this post on the HRW's "cynical manipulation of a worthy cause" with apparently a "history" to it.
