Amnesty International’s designation of the U.S. detention camp at Guantanamo Bay as a “gulag” turns out to be…a publicity stunt?

“Excuse me,” writes Washington Post media reporter Howard Kurtz, “but did [Amnesty’s U.S. head William] Schulz say that it’s okay to unleash words like ’gulag,’ even if it’s not an ’exact or literal analogy,’ because it gets him booked on Fox News? Is that the new standard? Yes, Chris, I called the president a war criminal because it was the only way I could get on Hardball?”
