IMHO anyone who stands up and says that the DOD cares about the Geneva Convention is either totally uninformed or a god damn liar. When I went to work for the DOD, one of the first things that they asked me was if I was willing to design weapons that were in violation of the Geneva Convention and if I agreed to doing that, they would provide me with a special secret security clearance for that purpose. I declined. Now if the DOD has a special security clearance for an activity that is, without a doubt, against international law then they are without a doubt, guilty as charged for any violations there of. DOD committed many violations of the Geneva Convention in Vietnam and now they are doing it again. They just don't like to get caught. The fact that this crap is still going on today simply illustrates how slimy our political system really is.
