Conducting the 'war on terrorism', and capturing, detaining and interrogating 'suspected terrorists', whether they are global, local, rural or urban, have become ends in themselves. This has resulted in serious violations of human rights for citizens, suspected terrorists, and the civilian populations of Afghanistan and Iraq. Many critics of these wars, and the 'war on terrorism' in general, have been asking how best to recast foreign policy so that the protection of human rights is regarded as central and indispensable.
