21. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch
Amnesty International has reported on human rights violations in Iraq under the US occupation and under Saddam. You can use this link to click back to reports from the Saddam period.

Human Rights watch does the same

http://hrw.org/doc?t=mideast&c=iraq&document_limit=200,...

That Iraq was secular under Saddam (though less so after the first Gulf War) does not mean he was not a dictator and flagrant violator of human rights.

I excuse murder and torture from no one: not George Bush, the State of Texas, Augusto Pinochet, nor Saddam Hussein. I believe this is central to progressive politics. For me, that is the true meaning of moral values.
