LONDON - The U.S.-led war on terror has produced the most sustained attack on human rights and international law in 50 years, Amnesty International said in its annual report Wednesday.

Irene Khan, secretary general of the human rights group, condemned terrorist assaults by groups such as al-Qaida, saying they posed a threat to security around the world.
Well, groups such as al-Qaida also pose a threat to the basic human right: the right to life.

Where's the headline that reads "Terror Has Hurt Human Rights"? I'm still waiting for that one.
