John McCain admitted on Face The Nation this weekend that the Bush/Cheney misadministration violated the Geneva Conventions regarding the torture of prisoners.

MCCAIN: "[W]e violated fundamental commitments that the United States of America made when we signed the Geneva Conventions. And we disregarded what might happen to Americans who are held captive in the future. And by the way, those who say our enemies won’t abide the Geneva Conventions -- they will if they know there’s going to retribution for their violation of it."

LibraryGrape: that means that the people that formulated the torture policy are guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity. Stuff that we routinely call on other nations to prosecute.

We hanged Japanese for waterboarding our guys in WW2. Do we really want the people who did all this shit walking around free? Uh, no.
