Amnesty International released [PDF format warning] "Broken Bodies, Tortured Minds" this week. Torture? It includes rape.
So Ms. Wolf who attacks two women who may have been raped and compares what may have happened to them to a woman getting a haircut and her boyfriend not noticing, when she goes on to argue that women who are raped should have their names distributed to the press, we are dealing with someone who should not be allowed to speak to the issue of torture.
I am not surprised by Mr. Redford. He is increasingly out of touch in interviews. (Remember his praise for Kenneth Salazar in the middle of the Gulf Oil Disaster?) And with the ACLU, I try to think that they were just mentioning everyone but I they link to Naomi Wolf's website with her name (while going to Wikipedia entries for others, like Ms. Barken). So I am not so forgiving and, honestly, rather outraged. Rape is torture. Maybe the ACLU needs to read Amnesty International's report?
