  1. -Editorial: Degrading America's Image (International Herald Tribune)
      "For more than seven decades, civilized nations have adhered to minimum standards of decent behavior toward prisoners of war - agreed to in the Geneva Conventions. They were respected by 12 U.S. presidents and generations of military leaders because they reflected America's principles and gave Americans some protection if they were captured in wartime."

      "It took the Bush administration to make the world doubt Washington's fidelity to the rules. And The Los Angeles Times, reporting Monday on a dispute over updating the U.S. Army rulebook known as the Field Manual, reminded us that there is good reason to worry." 06-06
