New Rules For Treatment Of Taleban Soldiers - A I Protests

 

President Bush has decided that Taleban soldiers could be treated according to the Geneva convention but he still insists that al-Qaeda fighters are no prisoners of war and therefore won't get the rights provided by the conventions.

Such rights entitle captives to remain silent as long as they tell their names and ranks. Amnesty International criticised that it is almost impossible to distinguish between al-Qaida and the Taleban.

It is feared that Bush's own rules which suit his ideas will put soldiers at risk of not being treated according to the Geneva Convention - all over the world.
Ari Fleischer claims the captives are treated well, because "that's what the US does."

  Logic  
 
So if the fighters are not prisoners of war, what was going on in Afghanistan then? Was it an accident? Are politicians simply allowed to name a case just as they need it? Was the terrorist attack a war? Or was ist planned before with CIA and stuff? There are people in charge who lack of conscience.
