Amnesty on Truth?

So the AI annual report again states:
“Amnesty International is funded mainly by its membership and public donations. No funds are sought or accepted from governments for investigating and campaigning against human rights abuses. Amnesty International is independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion.”

As the commentary, [http://landdestroyer.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/amnesty-international-is-us-state.html#_blank] says:

<<This is categorically false. Amnesty international is indeed funded and run by not only governments, but also immense corporate-financier interests, and is not only absolutely entwined with political ideology and economic interests, it is an essential tool used for perpetuating just such interests>>

Ah but it’s worse, for, if you look @ their wording, they say: “…no funds are sought or accepted from governments for investigating and campaigning against human rights abuses…”

So, quite clearly, using Bliarist type legal language, money can be and is accepted from such sources for OTHER REASONS.  So, for example, they could accept government monies to run propaganda campaigns.
