Deconstructing the Current Version

The recent version of the campaign against Cuba’s treatment of its doctors, the Human Rights Watch news release “Cuba: Repressive Rules for Doctors Working Abroad,” merits a good look for what it reveals: an overstated characterization of its charges, a failure to justify them, and a self-admission undercutting its own claims. This raises questions and encourages taking a closer look at Human Rights Watch itself.

Subject: Continuing campaign against Cuban doctors

The campaign against Cuban medical personnel continues with a report issued today by the so-called Human Rights Watch (HRW.)  Below is their report.  And next, an article in today’s El País, a paper in Spain, on this report.  I expect US media will follow up on this slanderous line.
