An email on Joe Klein’s list of “extreme” right-wing beliefs:
The weirdest part was his comment that thinking that Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch are a threat to U.S. sovereignty is evidence of right-wing lunacy. Maybe we ought to be willing to give up some sovereignty to achieve greater goods, but it’s hard to argue that the international “human rights” lobby doesn’t want to constrain U.S. sovereignty. Even if they’re not likely to be successful in a big way, of course they’re a threat to sovereignty. That’s just a statement of fact.
