Here’s a quote:
“Instead of reducing violence, Mexico’s ‘war on drugs’ has resulted in a dramatic increase in killings, torture, and other appalling abuses by security forces, which only make the climate of lawlessness and fear worse in many parts of the country,” said José Miguel Vivanco, Americas director at Human Rights Watch (HRW).
Editor’s note: Of course, we predicted this in 2007. If only Human Rights Watch had mobilized its network before Plan Mexico was introduced by Bush and expanded by Obama!? They and Amnesty International which actually boosted it, misdirecting the public into believing there would be effective human rights protections, have served this militarization policy quite well. This hand-wringing is too little too late and won’t bring back all the murdered and wounded.
