    May 23, 2016 | Washington Times

    Human rights groups and U.S. lawmakers criticized President Obama on Monday for lifting the 50-year-old ban on arms sales to Vietnam, saying he gave up an important bargaining chip for pressuring communist Hanoi to improve its human rights record. "In one fell swoop, President Obama has jettisoned what remained of U.S. leverage to improve human rights in Vietnam - and basically gotten nothing for it," said Phil Robertson, Asia director of Human Rights Watch, who noted that Vietnamese authorities arrested a journalist, human rights activists and bloggers even as Mr. Obama lifted the arms embargo.
