Milibandit and US Megabandits

David Miliband informs us that America has "more power for good than any nation in the world". (Europe will not divide us, says Miliband, Tuesday 26th September, Guardian).
As Foreign Secretary he should know that at least 70 countries had a better human rights record than America in 2004, as assessed on Mark Gibney's Political Terror Scale, which is based on data from Amnesty International and US State Department Country Reports.

(I heard on Today this morning and African academic who has an Index of Governance for Africa)
