Beschreibung:

This paper answers the question of whether the United States is hypocritical in its criticism of other countries human rights records in light of its own treatment of detainees in the global war on terror (GWOT). It first offers a brief overview of the role human rights played in the formation of American's government and how it continues to be an important influence on U.S. policy today. It next examines criticisms of America's treatment of detainees in the GWOT and then provides examples where the U.S. government has criticized other governments for conduct similar to its own in that campaign. The paper concludes by analyzing the ethical aspect of America's actions using morale theory to determine whether the U.S. has been hypocritical and briefly discusses potential consequences of hypocritical behavior, within the context of the GWOT as well as on a broader scale. Ultimately the paper reaches the conclusion that the U.S. has been hypocritical and that its hypocrisy could undermine its efforts in the GWOT.
