Phil Carter reiterates his arguments (from a military law point of view) for why the Gitmo camp ought to be brought within Geneva Convention compliance. He's got a point (and I don't want to hear word one about death camps. Not one!) in the general scheme of affairs. It weakens our hands to be perceived as not in compliance.

On the other hand, the current series of debacles in the US as the legal system attempts to deal with terrorists doesn't exactly fill me with optimism as to what might be the result of bringing the Gitmo camp into Geneva Convention compliance. I don't want to hear about released internees in the news after the fact.
