Bush signs terror interrogation law - Yahoo! News

As much as I want those responsible for 9/11 to be punished (or let's be honest, even killed), I think that this bill is the wrong way to go. Seems that we are stepping all over the Geneva Conventions and we will be lucky if our troops who end up in someone else's control (POWs) in the future are not treated badly. We can't shout "What about the Geneva Conventions?" from our pedestal when we hear our own troops have been mistreated if we pass bills like this.

Please note: the above is not the only reason I think this bill is wrong, but it is one of the more pressing reasons.
