These guys need to be nailed to the wall: US military in torture scandal.

Professionals in the military don’t tolerate anything like this. Of course, the perpetrators are “victims”:

His lawyer, Gary Myers, told the Guardian that Sgt Frederick had not had the opportunity to read the Geneva Conventions before being put on guard duty, a task he was not trained to perform.

This is Kerry’s defense for his accusations and admissions for action in Vietnam. It doesn’t hold water. American soldiers are taught often and well their responsibilities and rights under the Geneva Convention. And simple human decency should preclude any such acts.


  1. The Military Police only have two jobs during wartime operations; Traffic Control and POW guard. All MP’s are trained under the rules and regulations of the Geneva Convention for POW security and care.
