If the US is serious about enforcing human rights, it should start with pressuring its client states. Take Colombia:

CERAC is a private intelligence “think tank” in Colombia. This previously unreleased CERAC archive contains recent interviews, court transcripts and recordings into recent state-sanctioned killings and murders in Colombia. The material describes the legal instruments crafted by the political and judicial apparatus inside the Colombian government in order to provide impunity on behalf of the soldiers, officers, judges, prosecutors and politicians. In addition, the interviews, transcripts and voice recordings provide a glimpse into the breakdown of the human rights protection inside Colombia and the need for oversight and proper investigation into suspected guerrilla activities, conflict zones and abuse of military force.
