The united states also unlawfully imprisons people suspected of terrorism, breaks geneva convention, executes minors (only in Texas, folks), and in many ways, flies in the face of international legistaltion.
This doesn't mean they can't pull funding of a country that commits genocide and systematic political opression.
That also doesn't mean they will do it, not naming any country, but most will probably know which state of illegal occupation I'm referring to.
[ed.] Also, I might note that my home country, Finland, has a black mark on its human rights record. We have political prisoners; you can, and will, still be put in jail for six months if you refuse both military, and civillian service. While that law is almost always broken with clear intent (only a handful of people have ever been convicted of improper service). Amnesty International recognizes this as an infringment against the UN Declaration of Human Rights.
This however doesn't mean Finland should pull it's UN Peace Keepers, or not help negotiate peace (Martti Ahtisaari won a Nobel Peace Prize, Pekka Haavisto was an agent in helping South Sudan secede).
