"the Geneva Conventions rightly condemn the mistreatment of enemy prisoners, from al Qaeda to the German SS".

IMNAL, but I believe that while the SS would be covered (uniformed members of an official governement paramilitary organisation), al Qaeda would NOT be covered: no uniforms, and no government affiliation.


Above is a link to a story I wrote a year ago regarding the dialogue about "torture warrants" begun by Dershowitz ...


Thanks for the link, Damon.

"The nature of the new war places a high premium on other factors, such as the ability to quickly obtain information from captured terrorists and their sponsors in order to avoid further atrocities against American civilians, and the need to try terrorists for war crimes such as wantonly killing civilians."

Gee, Haven't we basically been wantonly killing civilians a lot recently? Ooops, I forgot, fog of war and all that. I think you could call what's going on at Abu Ghraib recently pretty wanton too, and many of those tortured were innocent. According to this logic, they are just as guilty of war crimes as the Terrorists.

Also, ummm, speedy trial? What "Terrorist" has yet had a trial of any sort in this country (I guess there was that Buffalo group, isn't someone filing a whistleblower suit against Ashcroft for that)? IIRC only in europe have Terrorist suspects actually been charged and tried.

Oh and Kingdaddy, excellent point about Bastogne, WWII and WHY we followed the Geneva Convention.

Cheers ;-)
