US Taking Hostages in Iraq?

I realize it’s hard to keep up with the many ways in which our government is violating the Geneva Conventions these days, but if you’re still trying to do so, be sure to check out this Newsday story: US military arrests war’s ‘bargaining chips’. See, if we can’t grab the bad guy we want, we just grab his father/brother/wife/son/whoever, and drag that person off to Abu Ghraib, holding them hostage until we get the guy we want. Which is, of course, a violation of the Geneva Conventions.
