Time;10/22/2007, Vol. 170 Issue 17, p28
The author of the article points out that a human rights vacuum has been created because China's power and influence have grown while the U.S.'s world-wide influence has diminished because of the Iraq war. While human rights atrocities in the Sudan and in Burma continue, the U.S.'s international reputation has been hurt by reports of rendition and torture.
