NGO's Critical of Alvaro Uribe's Medal of Freedom
In case you missed this, a coalition of US-based human rights non-governmental organizations put out a letter on January 12th, critical of President Bush's decision to reward the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Colombian President Alvaro Uribe Vélez. With all the things going on in the world, it does not surprise me that few news media really made much of a deal about this story. So I thought I'd share this note with you, posted on the Human Rights Watch website.
