Right after I graduated, I interned with the Arms Control Association. It was terrific.

2010 Foreign Military Sales and Human Rights Records

ACA’s Xiaodon Liang has cross-checked the list of 28 countries for which Congress was notified of foreign military sales in 2010 against the State Department’s own human rights reports. Reading these reports is, at times, more an art than science, but the overall picture is not pretty. More than a third (11) of the states failed to guarantee freedom of speech, association, and assembly, as well as a free press. Torture, arbitrary arrest, and discrimination remained a problem in many of these same states. (Spreadsheet and further explanation available in the attached document.)
