Supporting the Troops

Legal advice from the State Dept. to the White House OVER TWO YEARS AGO!

Newsday - June 11, 2004 - "A decision that the conventions do not apply to the conflict in Afghanistan in which our armed forces are engaged deprives our troops there of any claim to be protected of the convention in the event they are captured," wrote State Department legal adviser William H. Taft IV in a Feb. 2, 2002, memo to presidential counsel.
