By Amnesty International, , Index number: AMR 51/043/2009

This report assesses the words and actions of the US administration, led by US President Barack Obama, in its first 100 days against specific recommendations Amnesty International made to the incoming President on countering terrorism and human rights. In essence, Amnesty International called on the new administration to undo the damage caused by US policies developed in what the previous administration dubbed the “war on terror", policies that undermined the framework of international human rights law.
