Video, Amnesty Charge: States Secrets Doctrine Bars Search for Justice

By BillyClub - Posted on 23 June 2011

One of the speakers at an “End Torture” rally, in front of the Whte House, on June 23, 2011, was Tom Parker of Amnesty Interational. He underscored the difficulty in attempting to seek redress in the US Court for victims of torture. Mr. Parker said the government regularly imposes the defense of “states secrets privilege,” thus allowing the perpetrators of wrongdoing to get a pass and for the victim to be denied due process of law. The SCTOUS has affirmed the government’s position. See: AmnestyUSA and WitnessTorture.
