Gulags again

Nick Cohen wrote in last week's Observer making much the same point as here - that to compare Guantanamo with Stalin's gulags was rather a disproportionate response.

Irene Khan responded by saying, "The people for whom we campaign see no hierarchy in human rights abuses, no categorisation of injustice."

No, of course they don't, dear - but by the historically inept gulag-comparison, you obviously do; that was rather the point of Cohen's criticism and it's that your response doesn't address.
