I don't know if anyone really needs to second guess this one. How crazy does a world leader need to be to criticize the Geneva Convention? Does the Vice President understand the role of this treaty in international relations, or how this kind of statement would only serve to deprecate our international reputation? As if the reaction to rendition prisons and torturing terrorists wasn't enough. To wage an effective war on this kind of enemy, we need to demonstrate that we are above their ethical level. This doesn't help. That is unless you agree that what happened on September 11, 2001, was unprovoked.
