CIA Joins Social Media: Funny If Not For Those Pesky Facts

In response to the CIA's first Tweet, Zeke Johnson, Director of Amnesty International USA's Security & Human Rights Program, issued the following statement:
 
"The CIA's first Tweet would be funny if it weren't for the agency's use of torture and extrajudicial executions. They should put as least as much effort into following the law as they do into social media. The full truth about the CIA torture and drone strikes should be made public immediately and those responsible for crimes held accountable."
 
Amnesty International is a Nobel Peace Prize-winning grassroots activist organization with more than 3 million members in more than 150 countries campaigning for human rights worldwide. The organization investigates and exposes abuses, educates and mobilizes the public, and works to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied.
