Lawmakers Troubled by 'Ghost Detainees'

"Congress may keep up the focus on the prison abuse scandal following the disclosure that the military has concealed as many as 100 "ghost detainees" from the Red Cross...

Under the Geneva Conventions, the United States is obliged to give the neutral, Swiss-run humanitarian agency access to prisoners of war and other detainees to check on their conditions and allow them to send messages to their families."

Is it really a good idea for the United States to be joing in on the race to the bottom with regards to international law? These conventions were designed to protect all prisoners of war, by undermining them we are endangering the safety of our own soldiers.
