US to Trash Geneva Convention Article

The Pentagon has decided to omit from new detainee policies a key tenet of the Geneva Conventions that explicitly bans “humiliating and degrading treatment,” according to knowledgeable military officials, a step that would mark a further shift away from strict adherence to international human rights standards.

Even when so many experts explain how torture doesn’t work and that these procedures don’t lead to quality, actionable intelligence, they still keep pushing away international standards of human rights. And how many convictions have come out of Gitmo?

    don’t we have ANY laws prevening criminally insane people (Bush, Cheney, Rove, Rumsfeld, Rice, etc.) to be leaders of our government/country??? if not, we certainly should! Bush has broken 750 laws apparently… a bunch of lawyers are investigating…
