US WWII Interrogators Violated Geneva Convention
We can surely expect the media to denounce this
Nearly 4,000 prisoners of war, most of them German scientists and submariners, were brought in for questioning for days, even weeks, before their presence was reported to the Red Cross, a process that did not comply with the Geneva Conventions. Many of the interrogators were refugees from the Third Reich.
Oh, no, wait, these guys are denouncing the Bush Administration, so they're heroes:
"We got more information out of a German general with a game of chess or Ping-Pong than they do today, with their torture," said Henry Kolm, 90, an MIT physicist who had been assigned to play chess in Germany with Hitler's deputy, Rudolf Hess.
One thing that always annoys me about the anti-"torture" people is that they try to have their cake and eat it too. Not only is torture inhumane, they say, but it doesn't work. Stick with the humane argument; you are not going to convince me that playing a little Ping-Pong with Khalid Sheikh Muhammed is more effective than waterboarding.
