    Military personnel do not comment in public on policy, and do not criticize the Commander-in-Chief in public. Not ever. Petraeus should not be offering up such evaluations to the media--not while he's on active duty and holding a commission in the US Army.
    Actually it is allowed. I actually took a one day class on the subject in the navy. There are rules, but it is allowed.

    Re: "US violated Geneva Conventions" - Gen Petraeus

    Funny how the supporters of the Iraq war claim that it is a legal war and then say the enemies we capture are not prisoners of war and subject to the protections of the GC. That's like saying you're a murderer but then the people you kill are not victims and shouldn't be counted in your trial. I love it when people play with words.

    How can one violate the Geneva Concentions when the Geneva Conventions don't apply to the people in question?

    Maybe if the Nazi troops and generals had the balls to speak up instead of following half assed leaders a few less Jews would have been killed. Hmmmm did you think of that.

    How can a world leader like the U.S. abandon it's commitment to human rights and use series of legal arguments to try and mask the barbarity it perpetrated on it's prisoners?

    Because they thought they were above the law. They aren't.

    So this makes it right. That entire administration should be in jail.
