They don't ONLY go after the EASIEST targets. They focus their resources where they will have the most effect. For example, reminding everyone every year that, say, Burma has a terrible human rights situation doesn't accomplish anything. Everyone already knows that, and if there were anything obvious that we could do about it, we'd be doing it already. Anyway, here is an explicit statement from them: http://www.amnesty.org/en/library/asset/AMR23/006/2007/en/dom-AMR230062007en.pdf Who are you to say what they're job is? Last I checked, they're official mission was "to conduct research and generate action to prevent and end grave abuses of human rights and to demand justice for those whose rights have been violated." Tell that to the Burmese junta. It's not "my assessment," it's their actual stated mission, and it's not subject to your agreement. So you're as ignorant as most people. That sure proves something about AI... That's because they have been able to investigate Palestinian abuses. This very thread is about a report they issued criticizing Hamas, remember?
