the sanctity of war crimes

from maj. gen. antonio taguba, the army general who conducted the investigation into prisoner abuse at abu ghraib prison in iraq:
"After years of disclosures by government investigations, media accounts, and reports from human rights organizations, there is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes. The only question is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account."
taken from a new report compiled by physicians for human rights, which provides for the first time medical evidence to confirm first-hand accounts of men who endured torture by u.s. personnel in iraq, afghanistan, and guantánamo bay. the men were never charged with any crime.
