Die Hard Right Winger may not care about the world opinion, or the "quaint" Geneva Convention, or much else that doesn't support their Jack Bauer-esque agenda in fighting terror ('take one life to save thousands'), but like most regimes who do nasty things to people secretly, W's administration has left a convenient paper trail. Memos, authorizing the use of torture... they'll love those in The Hague. Didn't they learn any of the lessons from the Bosian/Serbian conflict? Cambodia? the Japanese during WWII?
