Army Manual to Skip Geneva Detainee Rule

Army Manual to Skip Geneva Detainee Rule - Los Angeles Times: "The Pentagon has decided to omit from new detainee policies a key tenet of the Geneva Convention that explicitly bans 'humiliating and degrading treatment,' according to knowledgeable military officials, a step that would mark a further, potentially permanent, shift away from strict adherence to international human rights standards."

What kind of nonsense is this? This is totally, utterly disgusting. The Bush crime family will turn our nation into the most hated nation in the world, while they stomp on the values inherent in our constitution! I guess they do not believe that the oath they took to protect and defend the constitution of the United States was very important. There is no excuse for torture, none. Period.
