Clue Delivery for "Bud" Stevenson!

4464787 Fb5431Bf20 M

Honestly, have you ever seen such a dour face? Honey, sucking lemons might make an improvement. Be that at is may, the reason *moi* is making a delivery to "Bud" is because of the idiocy of this headline:

"Terror detainees have no rights, so get over it."

Oh, contraire, you ignorant pusillanimous troglodyte masquerading as a human being! Cluella is here to correct you with this handsome solid gold edition of the

Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War

Considering we are supposedly "at war" against terrorism, doesn't that make "terrorists" prisoners of war?

Further: Torture is forbidden by the Geneva Conventions, both in cases of internal conflicts (Convention I, Art. 3, Sec. 1A), wounded combatants (Convention I, Art. 12), civilians in occupied territories (Convention IV, Art. 32), civilians in international conflicts (Protocol I, Art. 75, Sec. 2Ai) and civilians in internal conflicts Protocol II, Art. 4, Sec. 2A).

Take that, you asinine fascist!
