Craig R. Smith says that if you live by the Geneva Convention, you may die by the Geneva Convention. Literally. Should we only selectively enforce it, or does it all apply, including the allowance for the death penalty? The Convention says that death is a penalty allowed for those guilty of “espionage, of serious acts of sabotage against the military installations of the Occupying Power or of intentional offenses which have caused the death of one or more persons, provided that such offenses were punishable by death under the law of the occupied territory in force before the occupation began.”

So instead of the tribunals Bush was going to give them, he could just as legally sign their death certificates. Is that what the folks who wanted to give these guys protection had in mind?
