Geneva for Cut-Throats?
While making horribly unclassy comments through-out her editorial today on liberal opposition to security and imprisonment weasures towards captured terrorists, Ann Coulter penned this absolute gem:
By the way, how did the Geneva Conventions work out for McCain at the Hanoi Hilton?
When our enemies sliced Daniel Pearl's head off and Al Jazeera televised it, when the enemy does not openly where uniforms and act as soldiers for a cognizable state, when citizens are directly targeted for heinous acts, when intelligence is needed without time to obtain a warrant to stop a bombing of anything, the Geneva Conventions do not apply.
The idea that our decision to utilize methods that we decide are proper will motivate our enemies to ignore the Geneva rules on prisoner treatment so that Americans will not suffer from torture ignores the events since Danny Pearl's death at captor's hands (and gleefully filmed).
