I found some information about how reliable their information is. They are not ran like they say they are. So even the so called human rights
protector is gaming everyone according to the information. SO if they are so good why not disclose who runs them in public?
Amnesty International's Funding
Finding financial information on Amnesty International's website is made purposefully difficult - specifically to protect the myth that the
organization is "independent." Like any organized criminal operation, Amnesty separates compromising financial ties through a series of legal
maneuvers and shell organizations. Upon Amnesty's website it states:
"The work carried out through Amnesty International's International Secretariat is organised into two legal entities, in compliance with United
Kingdom law. These are Amnesty International Limited ("AIL") and Amnesty International Charity Limited ("AICL"). Amnesty International Limited
undertakes charitable activities on behalf of Amnesty International Charity Limited, a registered charity."
And it is there, at Amnesty International Limited, where ties to both governments and corporate-financier interests are kept. On page 11 of Amnesty
International Limited's 2011 Report and Financial Statement (.pdf) it states (emphasis added):
"The Directors are pleased to acknowledge the support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Oak Foundation, Open Society Georgia
Foundation, the Vanguard Charitable Endowment Programme, Mauro Tunes and American Jewish World Service. The UK Department for International
Development (Governance and Transparency Fund) continued to fund a four year human rights education project in Africa. The European Commission
(EuropeAid) generously awarded a multi-year grant towards Amnesty International’s human rights education work in Europe."
Clearly then, Amnesty does take money from both governments and corporate-financier interests, one of the most notorious of which, Open Society, is
headed by convicted financial criminal George Soros. In March, 2012, it was reported that a Bloomberg's report, "Soros Loses Case Against French
Insider-Trading Conviction," indicated that an appeal based on a "human rights" violation against Wall Street speculator George Soros had been
rejected by the "European Court of Human Rights."
Soros, whose Open Society also funds Human Rights Watch and a myriad of other "human rights" advocates, literally attempted to use the West's human
rights racket to defend himself against charges of financial fraud in perhaps the most transparent illustration of just how this racket operates.
Soros, who was convicted and fined for insider trading in 2002 regarding French bank Société Générale shares he bought in 1988, has built an
empire out of obfuscating global criminal activity with the cause of "human rights." His support, as well as that of the British and European
governments, of Amnesty International aims solely at expanding this obfuscating.
Amnesty International's Leadership
Amnesty's leadership is also telling of its true agenda. Suzanne Nossel, Executive Director of Amnesty International USA, for instance was drawn
directly from the US State Department - again, utterly contradicting Amnesty's claims of being "independent" of governments and corporate
interests. Nossel continued promoting US foreign policy, but simply behind a podium with a new logo, Amnesty International's logo, attached to it.
Amnesty International's website specifically mentions Nossel's role behind US State Department-backed UN resolutions regarding Iran, Syria, Libya,
and Cote d'Ivoire.
