That just means they won't be seen by the public until just after November.

The Geneva convention does not apply...It is not a declared war.

Oh jeez. I agree.

But don't you see that all this was started because someone said we where violating the Geneva convention. So Rummy said if we're under the Geneva convention then we can't show the pics. He's brilliant.

When has it ever been said every Iraqi being held in Abu Ghraib prison is an "unlawfull combatant"? How many of them are just Iraqi soldiers picked up during the war or Bath party members that have not been released for one reason or another.

If they are Iraqi soldiers treat them according to the convetion, if they ar bath party members consider it karma. They did it to their people, so let them see what it's like, even if it isn;t half of what they did.



Diss_ipator, good point but it could back fire. Oh there protected by the geneva convention, ok that means all the pansy assed liberals and thier terrorist buddies can start screaming that were commiting war crimes.
