Human Spin Watch Catchy title.
HRW sends out a press release response to the speech then sends out a note to ignore it and wait for a new one.
It’s not that the final release is that bad, although the initial one was better as far as HRW’s remit — human rights — are concerned. But the initial one had a lot more info about the problematic nature of having Egypt, a serial abuser, as host and also raises the bilateral issue of rendition, an ongoing program Obama did not cancel
