Center for Constitutional Rights:
"The United States has already changed in profound ways as a result of a decade-plus of global war, and US war-making has profoundly altered the lives of those outside of our country. We cannot simply end the 'war on terror'; we must grapple with the world it has created." CCR's Vincent Warren on the need for international bodies like the UN Human Rights Committee to hold the U.S. government accountable for post-9/11 crimes -- from arbitrary detentions at Guantanamo prison, to targeted assassinations around the world, and the toxic legacy of the U.S. military’s munitions in Iraq.

"As the Obama administration continues rallying its allies to hold Russia to its international law obligations in Ukraine, the international community had an opportunity this week to turn the magnifying glass the other way and question the U.S. government about its own compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR)." CCR's Nahal Zamani reports on the UN Human Rights Committee's review of the U.S. government's human rights record.
