Human Rights Watch Letter

Human Rights Watch issued a "Letter to President General Pervez Musharraf" calling on the Bush administration to "release detainees who were Taliban soldiers or who have no connection to Al Qaeda, and who are not being prosecuted for war crimes or other serious international offenses." The letter referred to Khan as a "homeopathic doctor from Bannu District in the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan who, American and Pakistani officials have privately admitted to Human Rights Watch, has no connection to the Taliban or Al-Qaeda."

Famous quotes containing the words letter, watch, human and/or rights:

    Come up from the fields father, here’s a letter from our Pete,
    And come to the front door mother, here’s a letter from thy dear
    son.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    She saw
    her five young children
    writhe and die;
    in that hour
    she began to watch you,
    she whose eyes are open forever.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    As there is no worse lie than a truth misunderstood by those who hear it, so reasonable arguments, challenges to magnanimity, and appeals to sympathy or justice, are folly when we are dealing with human crocodiles and boa-constrictors.
    William James (1842–1910)

    The common goal of 22 million Afro-Americans is respect as human beings, the God-given right to be a human being. Our common goal is to obtain the human rights that America has been denying us. We can never get civil rights in America until our human rights are first restored. We will never be recognized as citizens there until we are first recognized as humans.
    Malcolm X (1925–1965)
