Kenneth Roth and the Foreign Policies of Human Rights Watch

Somebody should do a study of the foreign policies of Human Rights Watch by reading their reports (and the language of the reports) coupled with looking at the tweets of Kenneth Roth. It becomes rather clear that dictatorships aligned with the US get far better treatment than dictatorship opposed to the US.  Their Israeli bias is too obvious to even point out.  But Roth for example is riling about Venezuela and the need for a referendum when he is silent about lack of any representative systems in Gulf regimes.  He also never uses the word "slaughter" to refer to Israeli crimes or to crimes by US and its allies in the Gulf, but uses it only to foes of the US around the world.  But I like that Human Rights Watch does not even try anymore to feign non-political standards.
