US credibility in maintaining human rights is challenged by the report from Human Rights Watch, a leading independent watchdog on human rights, that demands the prosecution of Sudanese and American government officials linked to the mass slaughter in Darfur and the prisoner abuse scandals in the Iraqi Abu Ghraib prison and Guantanamo Bay.

The report issued by Human Rights Watch says the response to each of the scandals is crucial for the global fight for the protection of human rights.

"The vitality of global human rights depends on a firm response to each -- on stopping the Sudanese government’s slaughter in Darfur and on fully investigating and prosecuting all those responsible for torture and mistreatment in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo," it said.
