CSPAN Video 18: Ms. Nossel at Dem. Party Platform Drafting Hearing
This CSPAN video clip features Ms. Suzanne Nossel, Chief Operating Officer of Human Rights Watch, the vaunted international human rights organization. Ms. Nossel is giving testimony before a hearing of the Platform Committee of the Democratic National Committee, 2008. In her testimony, Ms. Nossel is trying to persuade the Committee to include within their platform a section on the importance of human rights. She also encourages the Committee to adopt strong language repudiating much of the Bush administration's human rights policies (e.g., water boarding). Some interesting testimony.
