Themes presented are of the utmost importance! I wish there had been some mention of the U.S. role in human rights violations both here and in other parts of the world. We need to be reminded at regular intervals, since there is little public acknowledgment, ample political obfuscation and great resistance to accept this reality. Systematic use of torture in the Chicago Police Dept. under Lt. Burge, for example. The late forensic pathologist Robert Kirschner provided vital expert testimony used by prosecutors to prove suspects were tortured. U.S. provision of money, training, warm diplomatic ties for brutal militaries in Latin American, etc. If we hope to unearth the truth about human rights violations, we need to consider all the responsible players, not only the nationals.
