Rummy's Army To Formally Jettison Human Rights

Remember when it was the "Godless _____s" or the "Heathen ______" who were the animals? Remember when the Americans were noble and fought on the side of the righteous? Remember when we adhered to the Geneva Conventions because we knew that they protected our soldiers who were POW?

From The LA
The Pentagon has decided to omit from new detainee policies a key tenet of the
Geneva Convention that explicitly bans "humiliating and degrading treatment,"
according to knowledgeable military officials, a step that would mark a further,
potentially permanent, shift away from strict adherence to international human
rights standards.

The State Department is trying to explain to these dunderheads what this means to US standing in the World and they just don't care.

When do we stand up and say, "Enough! You may not do those things in our name.?" When do we get our America back?
