In honor of the start of confirmation hearings for the Bush butt puppet who formulated the "forward leaning" policies that led to the systematic use of torture in our Middle East outposts, here are some "quaint" Geneva Convention texts.
Gonzales disagrees, of course. As the BBC reports, "The Texan judge defended a robust US policy on terror suspects, but denied that it was responsible for the Abu Ghraib scandal, which he said was 'simply people who were morally bankrupt having fun, and I condemn that totally.'" What a relief. I'm sure all those America-hating Muslims are eating their words now. Ironic: We're trying to look good (and yes, we are doing good) by helping tsunami survivors in SE Asia while implicitly affirming our egregious treatment of (mostly innocent) Muslim prisoners. But that's no surprise. Bush made it clear he wants Rummy to stick around, and besides, the US has its decades-long practice of mind-bending self-contradiction to uphold.
