Supporting Human Rights & Democracy: The U.S. Record 2006

U.S. Department of State Press Release (4/5/2007):

"The Supporting Human Rights and Democracy: The U.S.
Record 2006 report is submitted to the Congress by the
Department of State in compliance with Section 665 of
P.L. 107-228, the FY 03 Foreign Relations Authorization
Act, which requires the Department to report on actions
taken by the U.S. Government to encourage respect for
human rights. This fifth annual submission complements
the longstanding Country Reports on Human Rights Practices
for 2006, and takes the next step, moving from highlighting
abuses to publicizing the actions and programs the United
States has employed to end those abuses."

The report is available in HTML and PDF formats.
