US Imperial Lackey Suzanne Nossel Heads PEN

(April 8, 2013) How America's Imperial Class Has Hijacked Human Rights to Further Its Interests
There is a campaign to turn U.S. human rights organizations into propagandists for pre-emptive war and apologists for empire.
The appointment of Suzanne Nossel, a former State Department official and longtime government apparatchik, as executive director of PEN American Center is part of a campaign to turn U.S. human rights organizations into propagandists for pre-emptive war and apologists for empire.
Nossel's appointment led me to resign from PEN as well as withdraw from speaking at the PEN World Voices Festival in May. But Nossel is only symptomatic of the widespread hijacking of human rights organizations to demonize those - especially Muslims - branded by the state as the enemy, in order to cloak pre-emptive war and empire with a fictional virtue and to effectively divert attention from our own mounting human rights abuses, including torture, warrantless wiretapping and monitoring, the denial of due process and extrajudicial assassinations.
