AP writeup: "US rejects Red Cross call for access to all terror suspects" So they're claiming they're not bound to the Geneva convention - but because they're nice guys, they'll still abide by it. But they won't accept any monitoring or accountability - they want to police themselves. And the office of the VP wants to let them do exactly that, as well as be able to torture people without any oversight. But the office of the President assures as, "We do not torture!" So there's no problem. Why do people in this country vote for chronic liars?
