Open Thread - Hanging At The Hague Edition


by Steve

Since the Supreme Court ruled against the administration in the Hamdan case, and nullified Bush's executive order and Abu Gonzales's legal opinions that the Geneva Convention protocols could be ignored, it now seems that the Administration thinks it is vulnerable to prosecution under a 1996 war crimes statute here at home. Of course, Abu is now scurrying to get GOP members of Congress to write a law that retroactively exonerates uniformed personnel who abused detainees and presumably their superiors who gave the orders.

OK, it's your turn.
