In summary: Hypocrisy, anyone?In summary, Donald Rumsfeld is complaining about how Iraq is treating captured American soldiers, saying it is against the Geneva Convention. He also brings up the issue of the Guantanamo Bay prisoners, saying that they should be treated better because they are Americans and Khalid Sheik Mohammed is accused of being a terrorist.

I object to letting the CIA or Dubya secretly detain or "render" people they might suspect of terrorism.
Catch-22. Until tried, they are all just suspects. The trial necessarily has to come last.

But I'll grant you it is unseemly.
