Human Rights Watch in 03:Rumsfeld Wrong to Attack Belgian Human Rights Law

(Brussels, June 13, 2003) U.S. Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld was wrong to attack Belgium's "anti-atrocity" law, Human Rights Watch said today.

At a news conference in Brussels Thursday evening, Rumsfeld threatened Belgium that it risked losing its status as host to NATO's headquarters if it did not rescind a law that permits prosecutions in Belgium for atrocities committed abroad.

In light of recent events I thought this to be a good one to revisit.

Apparently Mr. Rumsfeld was worried about himself.
